I had my first baby here and the nurse took hourse to get me any pain medications after I got an episiotomy. My husband kept asking for some medicine and they would not bring any. I was crying, because I was in so much pain. Then, they skipped me for lunch, so I was starving and my husband had to go buy my lunch somewhere. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! The nurse had a really bad attitude. She heard me crying and rudely said "You had an epidural." I could have slapped her, because my epidural wore off before I got the episiotomy. For the second pregnancy, I got a Rhogam shot and a glucose test and was charged $599 just for that (total). After insurance, I had to pay $326.37. This was for a shot and a blood draw, people!! They way overcharge for everything and are very unorganized. Do not have your baby here!!!

MRSA and CRMS

MRSA and CRMS
Details:

My daughter and my friends daughter both contracted HA-MRSA from Conway Regional in their ears after having a very simple procedure done.(ear tubes) Both within 2 months of each other. If you choose to use CRMS take your health in your hands and make them wash their hands in front of you, new gown and shoe covers in front of you. I have read so many others saying they too contracted it from CRMS so it would be safe to insist any nurse or doctor use a face mask. Proof that any and all equipment touching your body has been santized thoroughly. Please take your health into your own hands because CRMS will not do it for you.
