Jimmie Allen’s daughter, Zara, ended up in the hospital on Tuesday night. And according to the country star’s social media posts, he was not happy at all with the care she received.
Around 10:40 pm last night, the “Freedom Was a Highway” singer informed his fans that his one-month-old daughter was having breathing issues. However, the care, or lack thereof, led Allen to believe those doctors should “find another career.”
He took to Twitter to write: “Attention Doctors , if the parent of your one month old patient tells you the child having a hard time breathing and the only thing your lazy self wants to do is check heart heart and temperature find another career. Your job is to save lives so do it.”
After criticizing the docs involved in the first scenario, Allen posted a follow-up tweet explaining how his daughter was initially sent home. However, she quickly fell ill and was “rushed to another hospital.” As anyone can imagine, Allen voiced that it was going to be a “rough night.”
Allen continued by writing: now thanks to the lazy doctors at a hospital in TN that just sent our daughter home, our daughter Zara lost color stopped breathing and is being rushed to another hospital. Thanks to the amazing EMT team that brought back Zara’s color she can breath again. Gonna be a rough night.
After tweeting Tuesday night’s events, a number of Allen’s fans responded with well wishes.
“So very sorry to hear that about your baby daughter Jimmie,” one fan’s post reads. “I’m glad she’s doing better now, it had to have been a very scary situation for you and your wife. You all are in my prayers.”
Some fans also voiced similar experiences. “I’m so glad your daughter is ok,” another fan replied. “Too many drs nowadays act like they just don’t care about the patient anymore. I’m sure this was such a scary time! Hugs to you all!”
Fellow country star, Cassadee Pope, also reached out to offer “healing vibes.”
