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.

AVOID THIS HOSPITAL UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SCAMMED: Was charged $15,000 to get post-exposure rabies shots - no treatment in ER, just 2 shots for each of my 3 kids who had a dead bat in their room. Nurses gave the shots, we were on our way...then the bills started coming in! The hospital in Denver where we got follow-up vaccines which were fully covered by insurance told me SW Memorial was using improper billing codes but the Billing Department at SW Memorial refuses to bill it properly. I've spent 3 months on the phone with these people who are unable to explain to me why the charges are 1) different for each kid and 2) so insanely expensive. They refused to use the billing codes my hospital in Denver used, insisting they are doing the right thing. I don't know what to do - pay the bills or face collections. Avoid this place if you can - I can only imagine how ridiculous the bills are for real "treatment" by a doctor (who still billed me, on top of the ER fees, preventative care fees, and pharmacy fees, of course!!!)
