My sister went to the ER at licking memorial hospital in newark ohio, she is 49 years old. She had a swollen right hand with radiating pain of at least 7/10 her blood pressure was over 180, pain and limping right leg, pain right side of her throat, head ache. The doctor (Kevin Finley) came in and told her that her symptoms were not life threating and told her to go see her family doctor, and told her just because she didnt not have medical insurance was not a reason to come to the emergency room. He did no tests what so ever and sent her home without even giving her something for the pain! WHAT A CROCK OF @! THE POOR @%!$ DIDNT WANT TO TREAT HER BECAUSE HE WASNT GOING TO BE ABLE MAKE HIS CAR PAYMENT ON HIS PORCHE OFF HER. I DIDNT THINK A HOSPITAL COULD TURN PATIENTS AWAY LIKE THAT.

My last visit to the Licking Memorial hospital ended in an extreme bad attitude towards the way things are run there, and the staff on hand. I was signed in with a pain level of 8 and higher, and still sat in the waiting room for over 3 hours before they took the first vital stat. and another few hours before they called me back to a room. The doctor felt around my abdomen, where the pain was radiating, and did a pregnancy test and simple exam, then rounded it up to be "either a kidney stone, or an ovarian cyst" I'm no trained medical doctor, but I believe they are totally different. He gave me a vicodin and sent me home. No oter tests. When my husband asked about an ultrasound, or ct, anything, the doc told him it wasnt needed, that he thought this is what was wrong, didnt have proof of anything, just a feeling. So don't go to this ER unless you want to be diagnosed on a "feeling".

Pros: The building is new, and the personal ER rooms are nice and private

Cons: There is not enough staff, the doctors do not make regular rounds.

If you are needing to see a general care practitioner for something routine such as an ear infection or flu then I would not have a problem recommending this hospital. If you have an urgent, serious or more critical condition please think about it very carefully before utilizing the services and or facility of LMH. One of the more extreme situations I've encountered recently involved my husband whom was transported by EMS to LMH due to having a complex partial seizure. Due to confusion he walked out of the ER and I found him wandering the parking lot when I arrived. The physicians response to me was that my husband is an adult and can walk so they could not keep him there. My husband didn't even know where he was! We have encountered numerous situations with this facility over the past year which have been extremely unsettling.

PROS: Convenience
CONS: Slow, Poor Technology, Negligent

My hiusband started having chest pains at his job & had a co-worker take him to the hospital. They only asked him his name & told him to take a seat. They were NOT busy. There were hardly any others there. He called me to come get him after 1 HOUR of waiting & them never even processing him through TRiage. I have worked in medical situations & know that people with chest pains & bleeding are to be taken into treatment right away, not wait till you have time. He went to another hospital & they ran EKG 's & other tests because his heart was out of rhytm & had extra beats & other problems. If you want to be taken care of good , DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL, go to COLUMBUS.To me , this hospital is a joke. I know of other people who have had similar incidents.

PROS: none
CONS: poor care , slow , uncaring

Personally, I've never had any problems with Licking Memorial. Some may argue that they're slow, but I have not experienced that yet. I'd certainly recommend Licking Memorial over Genesis Healthcare System in Zanesville, OH. It's worth the half an hour drive to come here instead.

I hate going to that hospital. They are so slow and you have to be dying before they will take you back to be seen. Do not ever go there. I just went there the other day. I was in a lot of pain and I was there for Seven hours! I finally just left.
