HCAHPS Patient Score
What is HCAHPS?
The HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) Survey, is a standardized survey instrument and data collection methodology that has been in use since 2006 to measure patients' perspectives of hospital care. The HCAHPS survey is administered to a random sample of adult patients across medical conditions between 48 hours and 6 weeks after discharge; the survey isn't restricted to Medicare beneficiaries. You can learn more here.
*CMS has created the HCAHPS Star Ratings in order to enable consumers to more quickly and easily assess the patient experience of care information that is provided on the Hospital Compare Web site. Star ratings also allow consumers to more easily compare hospitals.
** HCAHPS data is broken down into the following buckets; definitely recommend, probably recommend, probably not recommend, definitely not recommend.

Extremely Disappointing ER Physician
Self-verified patient of Union Medical Center - Posted on May 23rd, 2018
NOTE: I do not qualify this as the fault of Union Medical Center. The ER Physician's are sent here on a schedule. If I'm correct, they are not UMC/Union, SC office/local resident physicians) It was necessary for me to see a Dr in ER around 10:30 pm. I was in extreme pain. Fortunately, they were not crowded, taking minimal time being called. After the usual procedures, initial contact w/the physician, I was taken to X-ray. THEN the wait. After an hour or +, the physician returned stating he did not know why I was there - nothing wrong w/my foot. I inquired why the pain and difficulty standing, walking. I received, nothing is broken. Again, nothing is wrong w/ your foot, don't know why you're here & not giving you anything for pain. Exasperated, I gave up on attempts for medical treatment. As to "don't know why you're here". My final words: "I was bored, wanted to throw $$ away, & I ended up here". (BTW - foot pain has increased).
Worst Place Ever
Self-verified patient of Union Medical Center - Posted on January 22nd, 2018
My wife went to the center with a bad scrape on ankle from falling. Treated her for COPD symptoms and placed bandage over infected scrap. Wife couldn't stand by herself. Nurses assumed she could brought in wheel chair and she fell to floor and hurt herself even more. They never told me about this and covered it up. My wife told me later on when I got her home. Would never take anyone to that place again. Should have sued!
