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.

Bone infection not diagnosed

The ER Misdiagnosed my 13 year old with a Baker's Cyst and sent us home telling us to wait it out. Luckily, I took the xray to her Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Kortright, who immediately saw a bone infection that broke through into the knee joint. He aspirated the joint at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital which clarified infection. He then did emergency surgery to clean the infection out and put her on antibiotics for 5 weeks. I could see the dark spot on the xray and the breakthrough and I am just a Mom! What is wrong with this radiologist! I was warned by friends not to trust Mease Countryside and I wish I would have listened. My daughter could have died from "waiting it out."

2 day hospitilization

I went to the Mease Countryside ER last Sunday with horrible periumbilical and right sided abdominal pain, fever, nausea and decreased appetite. Upon arrival I described my pain as fear of appendicitis. I waited over an hour to get into triage at which time my BP was 208/98 and I was in a lot of pain. They sent me to the waiting area for another 90 min and never checked on me. Once I was finally brought back into the ER treatment area there was confusion as to what rooms were available. Eventually, I was put in a room in the back corner and forgotten. My fiance' eventually went out to find a nurse to report my pain, dehydration, etc. and finally our nurse came in to complete a further assessment. EVENTUALLY I was admitted to the floor for additional observation. 2 days later...felt better but could not see a MD, could not get discharge instructions, was unable to sign discharge paperwork. I never even got a definitive diagnosis. Not sure if I could confidently recommend Mease Countryside Hospital to anyone since the care was so poor. I would consider this malpractice and possibly Medicare fraud since very little was done to help my condition and I am sure Medicare will be billed. What I have reported is but a brief statement of many errors committed while I was at Mease Countryside for 48 hours.

Bed hopping respiratory therapists

This hospital still employs the tyrant respiratory therapist David Essex even though he is known to have been having an affair while married to his wife of almost 24 years with another married woman Mary Newman, another respiratory therapist at the same hospital. His and her known antics are frowned upon by the other therapists and feel they betray trust and good judgment and should not be practicing in any field as important as the health and well being of others.

Customer service failure

Had two back surgeries at Mease Countryside; nursing staff excellent, cafeteria and cafeteria workers excellent - balance of staff an ongoing problem. Apparently the hospital is fragmented, with doctors, departments, billing, etc. all their own separate entities - frustrating! Had scheduling and billing problems. called Customer Advocate - no return call. Wrote Lou Galdieri, President - no reply. Called Lou Galdieri, President - no reply Still fighting excessive billing but with no assistance whatsoever. There are numerous hospital options in the greater Tampa area - please search out an alternative.
