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.

Inappropriate and Time Lost

My Asian-American 85 yrs old mother visited ER in March 2021 due to a compression fracture (L5 and S1) as well as hand bones fracture from a fall. She was admitted as an "Outpatient" though she had suffered much pain for any movement while laying. Case Manager Therese P, Elizbeth (G) PT (Pediatric?), and PT Duyen N. discharged her home on 3rd day without my consent by sending her with a medical transport that was ordered by the hospital. They actually wanted her out on 2nd day. I thought she should be in a rehab at minimum as she was disable and needed regular PT etc. I wanted a discussion with an orthopedic physician or his/her assessment report before her discharge but none of this available. I left messages without any return call even after the discharge. This made me questioned that she may not be seen by an orthopedic! There were conflicted info. The nurses informed us (during my visit on 1st night and during a call with my brother on 2nd day) that our mother would be assessed by an Orthopedic and PT next day (her 2nd day). In addition, my brother was informed from a nurse that a PT recommended her to a rehab. Case manager informed us differently that these assessments were performed on 1st day. It was a very strange and disappointed experience. In addition, there was only a list of medication that sent home with her with her past rehabilitation physician from a year ago (not hospital) electronic signature that his name was never mentioned this time for her assessment. Are they short in physicians? I have to comment that nurses and aid(s) were tentative, caring, and responsive from my witness during visit on 1st day as well as phone calls. We appreciate these staff but not the management.

Knee replacement surgery

I was extremely happy with the care and service I got from everyone at this hospital, from the personnel that check you in, to the nurses (in all parts of the hospital), anesthesiologists, and of course my surgeon. I plan to get my other knee replaced and will not hesitate to come back. Private rooms, a great selection of food, staff change-overs that include you so you can let the new shift if you need anything, constant information on your progress, etc, etc.
