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.

Double Standard

I am stuck in the waiting room not allowed to see my partner who was rushed by ambulance due to their covid visitation policy, yet the emergency room security and registration employees don't seem to wear masks. If he wasn't taken my ambulance, I would have taken him to literally any other hospital. I'll be filing a complaint with the state.

Dr Mitchell Goldflees at Thorek

I had an appointment with this doctor, but I never do him. He was too busy chatting with the front desk staff. Instead, he had unsupervised interns do all the work and even had a chiropractor offer treatment. I waited over two hours and not once did the doctor visit me even after he looked at my x-rays. Unethical, unprofessional and a total disregard for me, the patient. I did catch a glance at the doctor. He didn’t look like a doctor and was wearing a yellow cap. He looked disheveled. Waiting area was packed and there wasn’t much social distancing with people walking around constantly! It was my first visit to this doctor and I was looking forward to his opinion of what’s going on with my knee and shoulder (constant pain), but I left very disappointed after a total of three hours there! Do not at all recommend him.

Syringes and urine samples outside of thorek

Thorek has been rated the worst hospital in the city of Chicago and with good reason! There have been syringes and urine samples just lying on the ground all around thorek. I live in the neighborhood and walk my dog by there everyday and it’s disgusting. I went to a doctor who winced when he heard I went there for my cat scan. Well established doctors in the city do not recommend this hospital either. So, just go to a different hospital and you’ll be fine.
