One Horse(Hospital) Town!!!!!!
RedQuill posted:
Don't ever have major surgery at the hospital here in Wichita Falls now that the two former hospitals have merged. The care and results are down from about a B to a D minus. Some doctors are fine and even some nurses BUT much of the support personnel is dreadful in action and professionalism. On three different occasions, the person drawing blood for tests couln't find a vein right away. The result was extreme pain, tissue damage and even loss of the use of my right arm for a period of time. Also, the cardiologist overdosed me on Coumadin and it took 3 hours to stop the bleeding with 2 units of blood. The oncolgist and radiologist caused a bowel perforation. I could go on but what is the point?
