Bear in mind this is all I know due to Hippa rules but 3 patients died in early 2012 at Livingston Regional Hospital due to untreated sepsis. No antibiotics were given in the emergency room and none given on the med/surg floor where they were admitted. This hospital is so greedy that they cut staff immediately when docs discharge patients, knowing that the dr. Offices admit in the afternoon. When admits come in the nurses are so understaffed that they can not adequately care for patients and provide vital meds and care. The turnover rate for nurses is phenomenal because competent nurses wee the danger and leave, many before their orientation is complete. This hospital is left with staff that work under impossible conditions and are pushed to the limit every day. There are a few competent people remaining but they are exceptions to the rule. This place is a death trap and it is a game of chance you play,being a patient there. On their geropsych unit they rip off medicare, taking sick patients with simple economically treatable diseases like urinary tract infections and electrolyte imbalances. Instead of a $20 script of antibiotics they are thrown into a psych unit and medicare is billed 35-40 thousand dollars. They staff with LPNs instead of RNs on nights to save money. They literally will risk paient's lives to save a dime. If you are in Overton county, Tennessee, Livingston, Tn. And in need of health care. Drive,on through.
