Hospital District Vote

Rumor Has it that Glen Rose Medical Center Personnel Are Being Threatened To Get Out and Vote FOR

1 February 2009 at 10:56:41 AM

or they will lose their jobs.  Have heard this from several people. One person apparently is glad that that one doesn\'t live in the county and can\'t vote in this election. I can certainly understand encouraging people to vote and perhaps the idea that if the GRMC/GRMF goes under that the people working for that private entity might be jobless would be incentive enough to vote yes on the hospital district. But if it is true that people are being threatened to vote itself or they would lose jobs, that\'s just plain wrong. What that would say is that the medical personnel honchos would be going back to look at the records, post voting, to see who voted.. and then fire those who didn\'t vote who were able to. I certainly hope it is a drastic misunderstanding and that people are not being coerced into voting a certain way.

One thing to remember with all this is that the land, the building and the equipment are owned by Somervell County, not the Glen Rose Medical Foundation. The GRMF leases all that from Somervell County for one dollar per year. ANY foundation/private entity/clinic/hospital organization could equally rent the premises for one dollar a year and we would have a hospital, so it is not as if without the GRMF there would potentially be no local hospital/clinic.

Update: 2013-Somervell County PAC up to same old tricks. The Somervell County Hospital District was resoundlngly trounced in the election mentioned above, more than 2-1. Then, suddently, the Commissioners Court took over the hospital, thus preventing poor poor Gary Marks from having to pay back that 14.4 million dollar certificate of obligation (plus interest) that GRMC as a private entity was going to have to start coughing up. But the dream of soaking Somervell County taxpayers did not die and it's BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACKKKKKKKKKKKKK

I just wanted to make a comment about a doctor that works at this hospital who I will leave anonymous.  My daughter went into the emergency dept. at Glen Rose Hospital with kidney stones.  She was excepted by Dr. Anonymous for treatment and transported to Stephenville.  The nurse in emergency was told that her Insurance would probably not pay for all that needed to be done.  It was told that if an emergency case is offered and a Dr. excepts to take the case then payment can be worked out.  Well, after having a stent put in and being dismissed to do surgery later to have stone removed, patient was told that nothing would be done until money was paid.  Partial payment was made from relative and payment schedule was to be set.  Surgery was done and stones removed.  On follow up a new stone was found to be in bladder.  She was told to come back in and have this one removed also.  On her return visit for pre-op test she was refused treatment again because  of non payment and a total of $7000.00 was expected before  anything further would be done.  What do you do?  She was out of work from Dr. orders for a month with no work, how do you raise the money for payment.  By the way it is just above minimum wage job.

@Julie. What a tough situation for your daughter. What ultimately happened? Did she get taken care of?

Julie, your story is a great example why we need universal health care in this country. The corporate insurers will not adequately cover people like your daughter. We cannot expect our hospitals to continue to give expensive care to those who cannot pay. Otherwise, they would go out of business, just like any other business. Radical reform of the system is necessary, now!

So its the doctor's fault cause you know they ultimately dictate all matters invovled in medicine, ohh yeah especially billing, why didn't you just ask fopr some painkillers and have her drink lots of water, no just kidding, but you see how ignorant that was, kinda like your opening statement, cuz duuuuuh if your daughter was transfered to Stephenville, she was not treated by Dr. Anonymous, okay so are you listening, you say she was outta work from doctor's orders but not the actual pain from the stones, dude i dont think you are looking at this objectively cuz you know its your daughter, but always raise hell when you get the business from stupid nurses, Provide your insurance and sign the on the dotted line, culpability clause, if they refuse get it in writing, ohh and by the way doctors are the worst victum's of todays health care, especiaslly the ones in rural settings, ohh trhey make lots of money!!, yeah and have to work 600+ hours a month to get it and then that's not including travel time, nest time get a Lawyer, pain and sufferring ring a bell have her ask for all medical records, you might have to pay for em, enuf laters
