I have lived in Jackson County nearly all of my life and I have had multiple bad experiences with Holzer Medical Center Jackson. The staff of this institution have been consistently unprofessional and ineffective in doing there jobs. Holzer Medical Center Jackson has misdiagnosed my condition on more than one occassion and demonstrated a lack of medical care during visits that I have had as well as my families trips to the hospital. For example, I had internal bleeding on one instance that was not discovered during my time under HMCJ's care. It was not discovered until I was transferred to Holzer Hospital in Gallipolis that I had an internal injury and needed blood transfusions. It is important for me to say that I do not have an issue with all Holzer institutions just the Jackson hospital in particular. I have been to a couple of Holzer clinics that have been above satisfactory in medical and personal treatment of their patients, however this is not the same for HMCJ. If you or a loved one have a medical emergency, I beg you not to take them to the Holzer Jackson Hospital for their doctors and nurses are not only incompetent but rude as well. If you have a medical emergency it is dangerous to go to this hospital.

I would actually give you a 0 star rating if that were possible. I was a patient at Holzer for a GI bleed.....after a colonoscopy, I was told there was no blood in my gut and was discharged the same afternoon after the colonoscopy. I was not taken from the hospital in a wheelchair, instead I was left alone to walk to my car, (being pale, dizzy and short of breath) where my wife was waiting. I was home approx. 2 hours and started hemorrhaging AGAIN!! I went to Adena, where I was given immediate blood transfusions because I was bleeding so heavily, they were afraid that they could not catch up. Dr. Sinning was considering emergency surgery the same night, but opted for observation because they, even with a bleeding scan, could not tell where the bleeding was coming from. However, 3 days later, I was still getting transfusions and was taken to emergency surgery, which lasted 5 hours. I was admitted several times after that for complications. Now tell me, Holzer, that there was no blood in the gut, especially since I was still bleeding the morning before I was discharged from Holzer. I still say to this day....I do thank Holzer for one thing....that is the fact that they discharged me and I was able to make it to Adena....otherwise, who knows...?????
