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.

More compassion needed
Self-verified patient of St Josephs Hospital - Posted on July 25th, 2021
My mom was in this hospital and very ill , not Covid. Only one person was allowed to see her and we were not allowed to switch off. That was in December. That is absurd and cruel to the patient and the family. The patients need to see their family and the family needs to see them. All of the family should be allowed to talk the doctors about the loved ones condition. I felt like my mother would have been treated by some not all doctors., more aggressively if she was much younger. That is not right at all. I talked to numerous nurses about my mother”s medical status since I was not allowed to see her. One nurse was very cold and rude on the phone. She was trying to tell me and my dad what we should do with my mom, nothing. Who are these people ? How mean and cruel. My mom was not brain dead . I wonder about how some people see the elderly , is it oh well Their getting old , they’ll die soon anyway. Thank god everyone is not like that. But. I do not like the way I Was talked to by a nurse on the phone. My mother was a human being , a wonderful human being and she deserved respect. My mom wanted to live and wanted all the necessary medical interventions and support to save her life. Even though my mom was doing poorly and got worse, the hospital only Allowed my dad to see her. I never got to see my mom at all and then she died. I blame the hospital political nonsense for that. This is not China or North Korea. This is the United States. I should have been allowed to see my mom . My brothers shoujd have been able to see my mom. My mom should have been allowed to see us and her grandchildren. I am tired of a controlling hospital acting like they are a North Korea hospital not allowing me to see my mother. I do not think the pandemic is a good excuse for causing emotions pain to so many families. Also. Strangers , the clergy got to see my mother , not me. That’s insane. They are around more sick people And had more chance of passing an infection or Covid on to my mother than me . That is a fact. Hospitals need to get over themselves. Patients should be allowed to see family. Hospitals Like this are getting too controlling and mean about visitors. Like I said , my mother had a greater chance of catching an illness or Covid from clergy than from me. I social distanced, stayed home for myself and older relatives and always wore masks . The hospital staff can choose to be nice And there are nice staff. But the hospital has a lot of nerve not letting me see my mother. She died and I didn’t get to see her. I was in that er once a long time ago And I saw people waiting to be seen That should have been seen sooner That needed breathing treatments. No telling how long a lady waited and waited in the er for a breathing treatment. Also. Disgusted at how there was little respect for my adult child who was having breathing issues. Trouble breathing is a. Medical concern and I was not impressed with the lack of concern for my daughter’s breathing issues due to asthma. I do not care for this er at all .
Unchristian visiting rules
Self-verified patient of St Josephs Hospital - Posted on April 14th, 2021
My mother died at this hospital. At the time the visiting rules were only one visitor only, same visitor every day. They were not very accommodating about exceptions. If it wasn’t for the stupid and non compassionate visiting rules I might have been able to notice something was wrong sooner to help my mother , if I was allowed to see her. Guess maybe I should have gotten a lawyer to be able to see her. I couldn’t be there for my mom or for my dad. I wasn’t able to be there to talk to the doctors. I do know one thing for sure , dr Hanna the cardiologist didn’t care about my mom. She didn’t warm my mom of the other health complications due to her heart condition. She didn’t warn my mom and she didn’t inform my mom. She didn’t inform my dad either . My dad went to all my mom”s doctor”s appointments. My dad called in specialists., dr Hanna didn’t call in specialists. The hospital didn’t call in specialists. My dad is the one who called in other doctors to help my mom. The hospital rules have since changed , but are not good enough. They don”t allow relatives to be there together to see the patient . That’s so cruel And very non compassionate and non Christian. My mom was 83 a few years ago when in hospital here at did great. Because her vascular surgeon was phenomenal and very nice. And my dad and I never left my mom”s side. We slept in the room. Those days need to come back. I never got to see my mom before she died and neither did her grandchild or other relatives. I may have been able to do something or alert someone of something sooner. But wasn’t allowed to be there. I didn’t want my nom in this hospital I wanted her at different hospital. But dr Hanna told my dad to take her to this hospital. Dr Hanna should have known my mom needed an ambulance. She’s aweful My mom needed me and I was not allowed to be there. I’m fed up with the hospitals and their control issues over visiting rules. Clergy , a stranger could visit my mom but I couldn’t and grandchild couldn’t. That’s ludicrous. That’s just stupid And cruel to patient and family I’m pretty sharp. I may have noticed something to help my mom very early on or whenever but I was not allowed there. Also. I would have made sure am ambulance was called for my mom. Dr Hanna didn’t say ambulance. How dumb is that . Visiting rules not good enough , Non compassionate visiting rules At a religious hospital.
