You would think that a tiny hospital such as Blount Memorial would lead in a good one on one doctor-patient relationship, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. Walls are dingy, stained and peeling. There is no understandable layout and thus getting utterly lost in this tiny place is a looming fear. Ii had heard of the unprofessional-ism with which the staff here act and got to experience it first hand when I unfortunately took my dad due to some diabetes related complications. As my elderly father’s caregiver for the past several years, I am not new to the game and could immediately tell when the doctor was incapable and tried feeding me b.s. When I called him out on it, he raised his voice at me and said I could go elsewhere. And then he actually stood up and told me to leave the premises, along with my ailing father! In a way, it’s a good thing, since I took him elsewhere and got him proper treatment, but this kind of reaction is completely unwarranted!

I actually enjoyed my treatment at Blount Memorial Hospital. The ER staff were friendly, quick and skillfully managed to fix me up, while simultaneously dealing with a car crash victim. Upon the arrival of the near fatal victim, Nurse Janice made sure to call for a replacement to finish cleaning my wounds, so she could assist. I understand when the doctors and nurses are made to choose a priority case, but the fact that she made sure I was looked after rather than doing a shoddy job with my stitches shows her integrity and commitment to her job. This noble profession needs more Nurse Janices.

I actually thought Blount Memorial was kinda cute. They have the cutest little garden and since I was stuck there for a few days, my mother and I would sit there, every day for a while. It was beautiful. Also, the doctors were really nice about it. The rooms are smaller and more cramped than I would have liked, but it’s a small hospital, you can’t expect a presidential suite here. I would definitely recommend Blount Memorial Hospital to my friend and family. Good service; may have it’s downfall areas, but still ain't bad at all.

I am appalled! They woke me up from sedated sleep, forced me to down a bottle of water, saying they needed a urine sample. The nurse left to get me the sample cup and never returned! I was holding in my pee for as long as I could, pressing the nurse’s button at least a few hundred times (I wish I were exaggerating) but to no avail. Ended up slowly going back and forth, in my state of distress to pee. What bothers me is that this wasn’t even the worst part! The next day, the same nurse walks in and demands her sample. When I patiently (took a lot to muster it up) reminded her that she did not return, despite my many attempts to reach her, she matter-of-factly tells me she got a call from her boyfriend and then her shift was over so she just left! I was STUNNED!

Upper management needs to get it together, man! The good doctors and nursing staff here are literally being bounced around like a football, in terms of the “blame game”. When complicated surgeries must take place using sub-par facilities, no matter how skilled the doctor, it should not be a surprise that complications may occur. But rather than sticking up for their staff and trying to resolve the issue at hand, they are more eager to take the blame off them. In the process, the doctors and nurses get blamed, and essentially, their lives and careers are jeopardized. All because upper management cares about nothing but saving face.

When I was younger, this Blount Memorial was a reliable place to go for your hospital appointments but with time, the quality of service has deteriorated utterly! I must agree when people say the mentality of the hospital hierarchy, from management to staff is very like minded—that is, they are selfish and care for their own benefit and convenience over that of the patient in question. It is very scary, being on the receiving end of such a thought process. I was admitted overnight and I didn’t want to stay past 11 am because I was tired of the backstabbing between doctors and nurses and the questions management asked me when I displayed my displeasure was awful. I was determined to check out and find a place where they actually cared about the humans they were taking care of, and that is precisely what I did.

The service here is so bad, the doctors so unprofessional and the nursing staff so rude and incapable of their job. They care more about when they can go home than how to diagnose, treat and cure the patient. Bottom line, I think the one good thing about Blount Memorial Hospital is that it really makes you appreciate the “less appealing” hospitals where the rooms may look a little paler (Not that Blount Memorial rooms were a palace or something) but the care and attention they give to the patients is worth it.

The rooms weren’t too bad. I was in and out in a couple hours, got treated quite politely and was left alone, once the bills were all payed. No arguments, no drama, just the way I like it.
