Skaggs Hospital in Branson MO is looking for a new alliance and /or a strategic partner. Why would any respectable hospital want to partner with Skaggs? I have lived in the Branson area for 18 years and have found that Skaggs Hospital has garnered a bad reputation. The day I moved here I was told that Skaggs was sufficient enough for minor injuries but never go there for an emergency. Unfortunately, Skaggs is the largest and closest hospital in this area. My mother was a healthy, active woman who was working (2) jobs at the age of 69. One day she didn’t feel good and she could not get a reading for her blood pressure as it was so high. My father took her to Skaggs. They sent her home with some pills. She went back within a few hours and they admitted her. The ER doctor specifically stated that it was imperative how fast they brought my mother’s blood pressure down or it could cause a stroke. A few hours later my mom suffered a stroke. She had to quit working and my parent’s lost half of their income. She suffered paralysis on her right side. With therapy she can walk but finds it difficult to maintain her balance. She has suffered problems with her speech. Most people do not notice it but it is a struggle for her to enunciate words. She has paralysis in her right arm. She can’t drive; brush her teeth, cook, yard work or anything that she used to enjoy doing. My mom filed a complaint against Skaggs. Now Skaggs is lying about my mothers visit. They are stating that when she was admitted to the hospital she had already suffered a stroke. They state that she was dizzy, confused and had trouble walking when admitted to the hospital. My mother was very normal when she went to the hospital. She suffered from a headache due to her high blood pressure and walked unassisted and with no difficulty into the ER. They stated that when she was sent to rehab for three weeks that my mother was having very little difficulty. When my mother went to rehab she could not stand unassisted, she could not walk and her right hand was clenched in a fist. I have not commented much on my mom’s health. But it is time that I come forth and let other people know how this hospital has gained their reputation. In my mother’s case it was their failure to diagnose and treat her condition. It was their Emergency room error of dismissing my mother’s high blood pressure and sending her home. Skaggs hospital’s medical negligence led to them giving my mom a stroke which has led to her paralysis. If my mother suffered a stroke before being admitted then why did the staff keep stating that they did not know what was causing her paralysis? Why did they not tell us that my mother had suffered a stroke? Medical news has stated that if a patient receives treatment within 4 ½ hours of experiencing stroke symptoms, doctors can administer a potent clot-busting medication and save critical brain tissue. Doctors can prevent paralysis and other problems associated with having a stroke. My mother was AT the hospital and they administered a nitro-drip. Their medical negligence gave my mother a stroke, reduced their income and has created additional bills for medication and treatment. Skaggs thinks they deserve to get paid for this? No wonder they need help!
