"I was having chest pains when I went to the Emergency Room. The paper work processing went quickly and I was in a room within 15 minutes. The nurse was very attentative and I was having an EKG before I knew it. I couldn't have asked for better service. "

"I took my child in for breathing problems in the middle of the night. He was having trouble breathing and he was showing retraction in his ribs. We went to the emergency department, where we quickly saw a doctor who ordered a breathing treatment with ...more a respiratory therapist. The therapist showed up quickly, gave the treatment, and we were on our way. Sadly, although they treated my son quickly, they did not gather any of my information, so I never received a bill. I decided to be honest so I called the billing department and attempted to give them my information. They told me to call back in a few days after we were in their system. Of course I forgot because I am busy and then finally about a year later I remembered we had never paid the bill so I called again. We finally got the bill and the insurance worked out, but I think they were pretty sloppy not to have taken my information and then turned me away rather than collecting it the next day and entering it themselves later.

Even when a patient goes to a hospital in their health plan’s network, it doesn’t guarantee doctors there are in network. That can result in higher out-of-pocket charges, sometimes costing thousands of dollars.

"My spouse and I went to the emergency room. I was treated by
MD. I was seen within 20 minutes, which was appropriate given the nature of the problem. I was treated well and was discharged within three hours of arrival. During the visit I was kept comfortable. The doctor took time to get my history, understand the nature of the ...more problem and what had been done in the past. I really appreciated his willingness to include my spouse and myself as part of the team in determining options, rather than just as some with symptoms. When I was discharged I was given written discharge instructions that were clear and easy to understand, and included sufficient information for me to put in my files as a record of who I saw, where and how I was identified in their systems for future reference."
"I broke my wrist at the end of June and was hospitalized for 2 nights following surgery on 7/2. Over the course of the 2 days I had about 6 nurses. All of them were friendly and competent, but had noticeably different practice styles. I also saw several residents, pharmacists, OT's, and nursing assistants. Everyone was friendly and seemed to ...more care about how I was feeling and making sure my recovery went well so that I could make it home. I would recommend the

before, during, and after the delivery of our baby. When we arrived for our scheduled c-section, they had everything ready and were waiting for us.

until I was told that I would not get paid for mileage since there was a

Clinic in Sebring should kick the doctor that they have out the door and get someone that cares. Doctors like him give the VETS where they don't ...more trust some of the

Your service has not help me with any businesses or doctors in this area. Need to contact more people/businesses. Need you to also rate Health Care Services so we don't get stuck with high rates and co-pays. Health Cost is getting out of reach for people and we need ratings on Insurance Plans and Doctor ratings.

"Always get copies of all records during hospital stays.
Ask for clear diagnoses of all conditions and look them up on the internet or in medical literature to fully understand what is happening.
You must be an advocate for yourself, or have someone with you who can be your advocate.
It is terrible to remember, but I was the one, ...more during that second hospital stay, who first knew she had a blood infection. She was so ill that I was afraid she was dying. The night nurse was reluctant to wake the doctor on call. I looked on the internet until I found her symptoms. I realized she had septic poisoning and told the nurse's station and all the nurses there that if they didn't get my Mom some help I was putting her into a wheel chair and taking her down to the emergency room. At the threat of looking stupid to the team down there in ER, they called the doctor and got her some antibiotics and something for her vomiting.
I didn't know until we were in the other hospital that the septic poisoning was a staph infection in her bloodstream, and that it would
One of the night nurse's at
during that horrible stay had a birthday and was missing part of the night. The other nurse was covering for him. She was overloaded, and also was afraid of bothering the doctor. It was a horrible night for Mom and me.
But THE MAIN ADVICE I CAN GIVE:
Make every health care worker wash hands in front of you. If they are wearing gloves make them change to fresh in front of you. don't listen to them say they washed outside, or they put on fresh gloves outside. The water and gloves are in each room. There is notelling where they might be with their "fresh gloves" before they get to you.
Be an advocate for yourself. If you are too sick to advocate for yourself, then be sure to have someone else there who can."
"I had a hysterestomy two years ago and need to warn people considering WMH. While my surgeon did a great job, I was given so much anesthetic that I didn't wake-up for 12 hours. When I did, I was very groggy at which time a nurse gave me double the amount of pain meds (the type of which had been rejected pre-surgery )for my size and weight. I was ...more throwing up for two days....I was supposed to leave the hospital within 24 hours. They had to keep me an extra day - of course for more expense.Another nurse inserted a catheter in the wrong place - I had bladder infections for more than a year following. A third nurse ignored my empty and backing-up IV for over 20 minutes while I rang the call bell. I heard her visiting across from my room in the nurse's station. There were a few of the nursing staff that seemed responsive and caring, but I will NEVER go back to this facility."
Hills it's a great hospital. They have very good doctors, a top notch staff and their nurses as well. It's clean, very professional and very attentive. It's well furnished and just a top notch hospital. I've been there myself to visit. They run it very efficiently."
