First off, I have a seizure disorder that often requires visits to the emergency department. Secondly, I am an Opioid addict in recovery. There is a lot of media coverage here in Vermont regarding the seeming "epidemic" of Opioid usage and the news is constantly covering the fact that discrimination against addicts must stop.
Vermont has one of, if not the highest per capita rate of Opioid addiction/dependence in the country. This is part of what makes it sad that discrimination against addicts is in full-force and your treatment can range from sub-par to less-than-human.
I've been refused medication for my disorder on several occasions due to the fact that "my issue was probably drug-related". As someone who has been sober for a fair amount of time, this treatment can be quite hurtful and harmful. Treating an addict as less than another human is not the way to end the Opioid Epidemic.
Just like how "the civil rights act ended racism", I get so tired of these people coming on the news and discussing how great they are for the humanity they extend their patients. I'm sure it helps spur donations and get them funding for their sweet new addition, but that doesn't make it true.
3 stars, but 5 stars for the amazing Nurses and awesome Doctors who have treated me so well when I have been unwell. It's really refreshing to have a doctor tell you himself that he believes in you when most not only don't, but treat you're "already dead" and hence not worth their time, energy or MONEY.
The case workers here are nothing but liars. They will look you in the eye day after day and promise to help you when you are ready to leave the hospital, but are nowhere to be found or have the decency to even return phone calls when the hospital is ready to release a homeless patient back onto the streets. Shame on you! I will be filing a formal complaint. These people are cowards that aren't capable of doing their jobs properly.

"The individual is never in a position to fight against the power of big business, because the question involved is not who is right, if reasons exist to do wrong, the question involved is only that of who has greater power." If the good people had power, they would listen and resolve the problem with honesty and justice, but evil people in power will never address the argument to prevent an quarrel from arising. - Adolf Hitler
I wouldn't recommend treatment from UVM Medical Center to my worst enemy. This corporation produces within it, terribly immoral nurses and physicians, and treatments that in a home would be considered domestic abuse, assault, and torture. This place deserves to be bulldozed to the ground and Vermont will be a better place without it.
Every interaction I've had with the hospital and the staff has been excellent. I'm especially grateful to the people in the Financial Services office. They've been kind and empathic in understanding my situation and finding ways to help me keep my account paid. A+ to them!
What a Great Hospital! My Son had gastric surgery yesterday. The Doctors, the staff caring for him were all amazing, kind, very informative and attentive to his needs. What a great team, special shout out to his PACU nurse and the Baird 6 nurses!!! Thank you!
