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.

Kudos for the ER Team

Caring staff in the ER. We took a very sick friend to Lutheran. They admitted him, put him in a room and started care right away and kept his family informed every step of the way. Wonderful!

This hospital is ridiculous!!!

We waited HOURS. Literally HOURS to be seen. They won't allow you to be with your loved one and all they cared about was people who need to be vaccinated. This hospital is HORRIBLE

Terrible wait times and severely understaffed

Came in for internal bleeding (black stool) and waited for 5 hours only to wait another hour to see a doctor and receive my blood work results.

Nursing staff was great.

I recently spent 17 days in Lutheran Medical Center. Almost everything about my stay was positive. The nurses were absolutely awesome. Great attention and skills. The entire medical staff was great. The doctors listened to my concerns and adjusted my treatment. My whole experience was so good I won't even mention the little things that may need some improvement.
