The whole time I was waiting. Came to hardin at 8 pm and finally got out of the waiting room at 11:30 pm. Then saw the doctor at 12pm who then assigned a room for me. Got the room at 12:40 am. Then a nurse came in and stuck an IV needle in me at 1:15 am. So basically I came in at 8 and officially settled down only at 1:15 am. I am a busy person so I hate wasting time. And let me assure you, this was a waste of my time. Dirty, unsanitary hospital too just FYI.

All members of this hospital deserve #1 rating because of their efficiency. You tell them one thing, they will do it. You ask them one question, they will answer it to the best of their capabilities. I asked a nurse a question about my treatment and she answered as best she could. And then an hour later when the doctor came to check on me she elaborated on the answer the nurse had given and made sure I had no follow up questions. But that’s not even the best part. I was only here for 2 weeks. Yet somehow everyone treated me like family.

I became little Tan Tan and all the nurses were like mothers or sisters (and brothers) to me. I don’t even feel as comfortable in my college dorm but good Lord the people here.. they became my family in an instant. I get that there is a long wait line. But I also just found out that this hospital was recently voted the busiest ER in the state, if not country. So yeah. I have zero complaints. Keep up the good work, Hardin. You guys really have your shit together and I will be coming to see y’all soon- hopefully not for an medical emergency though.

Staff is profesh and friendly. I came this morning to Hardin for my routine check up and as always had a nice chat with the front desk ladies. Very sweet and caring women. Always checking up on me. The doctors and nurses- extra nice and profesh. Never once do I have to wait to see anyone. Great place.

Old people should not be brought here. I am a hospice nurse and I’ve seen the way they are treated. Just last month I was considering bringing my 81-year-old mother here on account of her bad back but thankfully that very day I witnessed a horrific experience of another 80 something year old woman who’s daughter was with her the whole time and she told me how horrific her experience was. I have only been at Hardin for a few weeks now and I can honestly say the vibe here is very different from most hospitals.

Not that all hospitals are not businesses and therefore money centric but there’s something very schemey about the way Hardin works. First of all when I heard the chief of medicine say that people without insurance should not be given beds I figured the compassion factor had been thrown out of the window way before I came into the picture. But the way I was taught, a nurse is someone who owes it to every single patient- whether they had insurance or not- to be compassionate and understanding of their situation. Whne I was expected to look at a poor lady with no insurance and tell her that we didn’t have any beds available, it broke my heart.

Thankfully she came back the next day with her daughter who had insurance. We worked it out and finally got her a bed. Even so the chief of medicine made her wait a good 5-6 hours in the waiting room with her daughter before granting it to her. They also made sure she didn’t get the best of amenities. And for that one reason alone- that she didn’t have insurance- they were very skeptical of both her and her daughter. They first thought they were druggies and they’d come solely for that.

But when I talked ot the daughter I realized how inhumane the treatment was here. How they didn’t bother checking up on the poor mother hours later even though she was in agony. How the daughter had to take three days off work because the mother was scared the nurses would eat her alive. Very surprised by this behavior. Need I remind you there are a lot of people in America without insurance. If we were to treat everyone like that, this country would be a horrific place to live in. #ashamedtobeanamerican.

HMH is known for its colonoscopies (atleast in my office). We all got it done here because they are good at it. Doesn’t hurt at all.
