It’s a Miracle! Man Treated at Local ER Lives to Tell About it!

PALESTINE, TX—A patient who was recently treated at Palestine Regional Medical Center for severe stomach cramps actually walked out of the emergency room alive and well, leaving hospital workers in a state of stunned disbelief.  ER staff are calling him the “miracle man” but there is growing concern the hospital’s “D” rating might now be in jeopardy, “I don’t know if we’re prepared for the added responsibilities that come with a higher rating,” said Alan George, chief executive officer for PRMC.

The unidentified patient was given two teaspoons of a chalky-tasting white liquid at a cost of $5,000 per teaspoon and he reportedly began to improve within minutes.  The ER doctor released him after making sure the total bill tipped the scale at $47,000, an amount that also included charges for a PAP smear and pelvic exam. The doctor on duty justified the additional charges explaining, “The results clearly confirm the patient was, in fact, a man.”

When asked if he was going to Disney World to celebrate, the patient removed a card from his pocket and replied, “No, but apparently I qualified for two free nights at The Redlands Hotel, courtesy of the generosity of PRMC.”  The patient said he was told the hospital and the hotel have some sort of “mutual aid agreement” then stated, “Hey, it’s a free stay so why not take advantage of their generosity.”

As for the charges for the PAP smear and pelvic exam, the patient said, “I guess I should be outraged, but I tend to look on the bright side, so at least I know, for sure, I’m a man,” then a bit of doubt must have crept into his mind as he questioned, “But on second thought, it’s PRMC so how can I really be sure of the results?”

  1. This just shows the mentality of this county !
    My mother in law was there this past week and had excellent care .
    We live in small community thus we have a smaller hospital .

  2. Their batting average is still way below 500…glad the few on here had an ok experience but the majority rules..this hospital is pathetic. .plain and simple…

  3. All hospitals have bad things . Just happens this one is small and scores are bad. I have horrible story at 2 in tyler but they are dr nurses and paramedic they can’t do magic .

  4. I have had good care when I have had to be hospitalized twice within a 3 month period. I didn’t complain, said please and thank you. My nurses and aids were always there in a few minutes when I rang the bell. If they couldn’t they sent someone to tell me they were with another patient. My only problem was the hospitslist. My doctor doesn’t see patients in the hospital he has someone contracted to see his hospitalized patient’s. That S%B basketball kept asking me if I drank. Anybody that knows me know I don’t AT ALL . Anyway I’d tell him I don’t drink he’d look at me a,few seconds and then say ok….but don’t drink anymore……..
    aaaarrrrggg.

  5. Later when I got out a couple of weeks later I did buy some baileys Irish cream ha tell me not to drink when I don’t ……I’ll show him Bwahahaha #hardcore #alcoholic LOL

  6. Someone actually lived after being admitted into Palestine hospital?
    That’s an amazing story in itself.
    Biggest crap piece of health care in the area.
    Take me to etmc

    1. They nearly killed my brother ! He literally walked out of icu. The nurses Donna, Mary, Tricia, where are the rudest nurses did not know what they were doing this hospital needs to be investigated and shut down.

    2. My dad was in Palestine regional for 2 wks and passed. Another friend went in for a hip replacement and died while there, I have seen and heard to many horror stories about Palestine regional…… Keep me out of there.

  7. Several of my family members have been patients in PRMC and only on one occasion was the care not up to par. I am a retired RN, never worked at this hospital, and can be critical of poor care. If anyone has a problem with billing or care it should be reported to Administration. Nothing can be resolved on face book
