I have read countless CPS horror stories where something so diminutive prompts an investigation or worse. I have always believed There is two sides to every story and that surely there is information that is being left out. At least that is what I used to believe... until it happened to me. I literally rescheduled an appointment. RESCHEDULED not canceled! Turns out false reporting of neglect is illegal in the state of PA.
Well we've always had negative experiences with the hospital. When the hospital was still in Oakland the interns were very ignorant. They acted like our daughters health wasn't a priority. They would treat her for dehydration and send us home. Which I understand is protocol but knowing that she'd needed to be admitted they wouldn't and I asked the intern do you have children of your own when she said no then I said until u walk a mile in my shoes don't tell me that she's fine. I told the intern that I'd be back in a few hours for the same issue I was and she gave me a look of what are you doing back. The chief resident asked what was going on and I told him. He looked my daughter over and asked why wasn't she admitted when I was here the first time. I told him what the internet said and did. He said something to her about it. Thank God she outgrew those issues. She's a healthy soon to be 23 year old.
Easy check parking and check in. As always friendly staff welcoming with a smile.
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.
