Location and Directions


My brother in law hurt both his knees playing basketball. Left knee cap was out of place the other knee over double the size it was supposed to be. They done X-ray nothing broke. Nurse practitioner said they would wrap knees and then see if he could walk. When they tried to get him up his left knee seemed to go back out of place. His pain went from a 6 to over a 10. Nurse goes and gets nurse practitioner again he comes in said about all we can do is write you a script for crutches. The patient had to ask if the could get script for pain medicine. So fast forward we finally get him in wheelchair and my brother in law needs to go to bathroom nurse wheels him in my husbands helps him thank goodness he did. I’m at the door hear him yelling and my husband catches him because he can’t put pressure on his legs. I tell the nurse something is happening. Again he tells them about what is happening. She wheels him out of bathroom. And guess who has to wheel him out to the car and get him in the car. We did the nurse did not. they let us do this. I have never been discharged by wheelchair and you have to be taken to car by family member. I am very disappointed in the treatment my family has gotten tonight at this hospital. I know if he is still in this much pain he will be going to Vanderbilt since they live in Nashville. If we could have gotten him in a car we would have taken him to bowling green. We all felt like they didn’t have time for us even though they was in the er for at least 3 hour. I’m can’t believe they did not make sure he could even stand. No they wanted him out and I’m not sure why. Did not feel like he got the best of care. Maybe stop having nurse practitioner and have a doctor. Or maybe when someone has hurt both legs make sure they can stand and put pressure on at least one so crutches can work don’t think crutches will work if if you can’t stand. If I could have given a 0 I would have. I hope he had not hurt himself worse since trying to move and not been able to. THE WORST CARE EVER AT TJ SAMSON COMMUNITY HOSPITAL. NOT SURE I WOULD EVER RECOMMEND THEM AGAIN. This is a update on my brother in law he saw a surgeon had blown both guad muscle in both legs. He has had surgery on both legs. If tj had taken the time to find out what was wrong with him. I’m sure that both muscles were torn but one had started to rip upward and one leg started to have a blood clot on his leg which the surgeon did remove. All I can say if a patient says they can walk and they can’t stand you need to do more. Wasted time and money with this hospital for no reason. They do nothing for you. (3 weeks ago)

This place is by far the best. Most of the negative reviews I see are what must be rare instances where they had staff members sick and a crowd of people in the E.R. I see where some have commented that they watched people come in after them and were seen first well that would only happen in the event that someone was severely worse off then you. I know some are looking to blame the hospital when they don't get what they want when they want but that is not what they are there for. I have always been treated with respect and my family has as well. I'm just glad to have a good hospital so close to home I mean look at Edmonton. Them poor people don't even have a hospital period. Thanks TJ Samson for saving my mother's life. (3 months ago)

Great place to select if you want to be killed, injured, or scarred for life. Went to ER with breathing difficulty and was diagnosed with a collapsed lung by 2 different MDs . ER Dr attempted to insert chest tube to inflate this "collapsed lung" NOTE: That lung was surgically removed in 2015 as a result of cancer. There was NO lung in the chest wall. This was PURE torture.

went to visit a friend and room smelled so bad...i ask the nurses if it was because of his infectioin they said was the bathroom they had tried fixing it several times. I said then can't you move him to a different room they said not unless administa. tell them too.......STUPID STUPID STUPID (2 months ago)

I had surgery on April 6th and the staff at TJ treated me with compassionate care. Simply the best hospital! (3 months ago)
