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.

I had sepsis/severe toxic shock. I had an open wound on my heel. I had surgery on my arm twice to remove an infected fistula. I was in a lot of pain and both my doctor and palliative failed to give me anything but Tylenol for weeks. I waited to long to get my medication, meals, and to be cleaned. Staff failed to see I was bleeding internally for weeks gave me a blood transfusion instead of finding the problem.
I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN

I had a couple of fabulous nurses but the Anastheologist brought in a young woman who had NEVER done a spinal before. He allowed her to keep trying and she couldn't hit the spot. My back looks like a pincushion. The pain was excruciating. I have had numerous spinals for surgery and Never in my life have I gone through any pain when getting it until yesterday. A slight poke and then numb. I never go back there. I will go to Naples from now on even if I have to change Drs. 😖
Started out well, fell apart fast,

Worst ER Experience I’ve Ever Had!
Self-verified patient of Gulf Coast Medical Center - Posted on April 7th, 2021
Absolutely horrific time at the ER last night. Waste of time and money and I was having heart and possible stroke issue. Left sitting for over 6 hours. Not one nurse came to check on me or look at my vitals, during this time I had a episode with my heart skipping and blood pressure spiking and nobody even looked plus we had to tell the Dr what happened and he didn’t even care. Not a word. This is the worst ER experience I have ever had and I do not recommend anyone with heart problems or any problem to go here! Absolutely horrible! The only kind person was the guy that checked us out and took our money. Never again.
