What is HCAHPS?

Impressive Care

Recently I had a total knees replacement through ORTHONY with Dr. Polishchuk at Ellis. From the pre-op nurse, Sheila(?) and Nurse Manger, Cassie to the discharge nurse,K.A., and every medical professional and staff member in between, my medical and emotional needs were their top priority. Each member was competent, professional, and compassionate. I was very apprehensive about this surgery, but Dr. Polishchuk and his surgical team were outstanding!

No compassion

I had gastric sleeve surgery on 12\4 the anesthesia Dr was horrible he treated me like I was an animal. Ripping the tape off my arms without telling me and making ridiculous jokes about cheating on his wife. When you go to the hospital you don't expect for the people who are going to care for you to lack empathy. I even told him " I know you are used to dealing with people who are not awake but I'm awake and I can feel everything you do to me". And he told the tape off of me again without warning. The i wake up in recovery with no pain medication thinking I'm going to did because I was having pain in my chest and when I asked the nurse what's happened? She speaks to like I was an annoyance and says I am waiting for your next xrays. It's horrible and frightening to be treated that way
