feedback about Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
It is great to live near such an amazing place as Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. The staff make every attempt to ensure you are fully aware of what they are doing or going to do. We were always asked "do you have any questions". A paper flow chart showing each step of the process was given at the first step of registration. Security and efficiency are woven into the layout of the building. A colleague and I were discussing CHP and we described it as a well oiled machine for fixing children in medical need. You never enjoy being a parent with a child in the hospital but the staff here do everything they can to put your mind at ease. The human element is top notch and you feel assured your child is receiving the best care.
We had to bring my 5 year old daughter here a few nights ago. It was terrible night; but, she says she is no longer afraid of the hospital thanks to the amazing staff in the Emergency Department. I think that says more than I can, because she was terrified. I hope I never have to go back, but if I do I'm glad to know we have such a place so close to home. Everyone was wonderful.
We have found the nursing staff, doctors, cleaning crews, and aides to be kind and helpful. The patient room provided privacy for our daughter and our family. The atrium, garden, chapel and library were wonderful to have. Very grateful that CHP is within an hour of us.
ER is the best for everything but it’s a joke how long you wait. 2 hours in waiting area when it’s says average 50-60 minutes and haven’t been taken to a room. Total time 4 hours for 2 stitches but doctor ended up putting 4 holes in my sons lio. Snapped one and pulled string all the way through on one. Hands shaking like crazy. If this would have been my first experience I wouldn’t be going back.
My daughter is a Premie and has some issues that she will outgrow hopefully:) the team at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is amazing and always helpful. She has at least 4 doctors here and every time we come it feels as if we are the only ones here. We love it and although one day I hope she doesn’t have to come I’m glad that there is a hospital with so much support.
