All this hospital cares about is money. They aren't the slightest bit concerned with their customers. Their billing system is a nightmare. They have the worst system possible for keeping up with billing. They give you too many account numbers, and every time you go there with a balance due, you get a different account number. And good luck getting past the guard dogs to get into accounting to discuss anything. And good luck even finding the accounting office (located behind the break room). I have been a loyal customer of theirs for 23 years and I will never go back there again.

Their billing system is a nightmare. They give you a different account number every time you leave there owing money. Just think 5 visits, 5 bills, 5 different account numbers, 5 different checks for 5 different accounts. You better make sure you have the right account number on your payments, or else they just stick the payment where ever they please, then the next thing you know your bill is turned over to a collection agency for being unpaid, when you think you have paid it. And good luck getting past the guard dogs and getting into the accounting office to get it straight. Medically speaking, I've had more misses then hits on diagonistic problems.

I was there for three hours as sick as a dog. The doctor told me it was my period and refused to give me any medicine for my pain and nausea. I ended up going to another ER just to be told I had the stomach flu and now I feel better. I would be terrified to take anyone to murrays hospital if they can't even tell the difference between a period and the flu!

Murray Hospital needs practice and training in patient care. At post op time - more RN attention immediately after returning to room and keep that bedside table with needed supplies for patient in reach! Not enough rubber gloves in use and answer that call button, especially when patient can't get out of bed.The nurses in the prep surg are excellent and set-up in waiting room for viewing where your loved one is a great idea.Please have some classes for your staff. I want this facility to improve and be number 1. Thanks for listening.Cathy and Denny Doyle

The nursing staff would rather talk in their stations than help the patients. Patient dignity is non-existant. Rather than help my mother to the bathroom, they slapped a diaper on her and then ignored her... Getting any help is impossible
