I was regretfully double billed . When I brought this to their attention and they sent me a refund. Regretfully however on the same occasion, they gave me discharge paperwork instructions with the wrong patients name. Many years ago this hospital was run very well however I cannot longer say the same now. I believe the reason is consistently related to a shortage of staffing and poor training.
My wife was waiting at a light and her car was slammed from behind at 60 MPH.. She is lucky to be alive. She didn't feel all that bad, and due to the outrageous cost that hospitals charge and doctors, we did not go to the ER. Late the next day her neck was still bothering her, so we figured better safe then sorry.. We walked into the ER, plugged her info into a machine and sat down.. minutes later, the ER attendant called her over asked a few questions ,took her BP and Temp, and asked us to wait a few minutes to be seen.. These services were billed to my insurance at $ 4549.23 ... We saw 2 doctors who asked where does it hurt, do this, move that and ordered a CT., These services were billed from Split Mountain LLC at $ 1175.00 The CT scan was $ 7571.02.... Total for almost 2 hours in the ER, $ 13295.25.. We walked in, talked to 3 people, and had a CT scan. I understand the CT scan and hospital Overhead, But FORTY FIVE HUNDRED dollars for some secretary work and taking her temp and BP ? I cant afford to pay several thousand dollars of this bill after my insurance covers their portion. . Plus the fact that this is why The insurance industry is suffering, they are getting ripped off by doctors and Hospitals like Fawcett. Horrible, horrible rip off of Senior citizens.
No security to protect patients from outsiders wandering into their rooms. Students allowed to run rampant thru halls. No one watching. Tried to give a blood transfusion to a patient who did not need a transfusion and does not allow/believe in transfusions. People off the street entering patient rooms between 2 AM and 5 AM in the morning. No security watching. workers accused patients of committing crimes and threatening them. Not safe.
I believe that this hospital does not care about the elderly. They let them suffer and wait for them to die. Horrible place. Doctors kept switching my mother's doses of medication, no communication. I would rather die at my home than to go there and be killed by someone's incompetance.
Went to ER for stomach issues. (small bowel obstruction) Waited 45 minutes doubled over in pain. Asked me for a urine sample and showed me to the public bathroom where the trash can obviously hadn't been emptied in a very long time. I won't go into details, but you get my drift....very dirty and nasty. ER was very slow to respond. I was left in ER room without a call button for a few hours. Once admitted things got a little better, but I would avoid this emergency room at all costs.
