I had to go to the emergency room. The service and care were very good though I was frustrated because I left without a diagnosis. On the discharge day, things became less efficient. I couldn't get anyone to discharge me in a timely fashion. I was connected with a billing specialist to contact after I left the hospital who did not return my calls until the third attempt. Billing issues had to be dealt with through separate entities anyway. My requests for itemized bills were not followed up on or if they were, I was never informed.
When I called one evening to review prep instructions for a follow up CT scan, it took several attempts to locate someone who could help me. During one of those attempts, I was connected with a nurse who asked in a rude tone of voice "Who are you?" and then, "Where are you calling from?" I felt so rattled by this that I hung up on her. The next nurse I was connected with was knowledgeable and reassuring.
My assessment of this hospital is that once you're there, the care is great. But once you're on your way out, there is little cohesion. After your hospital stay, you will have to dig deep to get the responses you need, possibly at a time when you have little energy to spare on telephone goose chasing.
