I have been a patient at this location of MH Rehab and have been the subject of many orthopedic surgeries and joint replacements. The real problem is the constant changes in Medicare and the governmental cuts in financing it. The laws still state however, that if you have a secondary to Medicare,you cannot be billed. Medicare pays 100% of inpatient care for the first 20 days. The secomdary pays the rest. The thing to be careful of however, at any health care facility is the recent change in what is called, "under observation". Your doctor is not necessarily aware of this determinatuion; the hospital administration can determine that designation with in 24-36 hours after admission. At that point, you will be billed for services. The changes are moving faster that billing and coding can keep up and it is unfortunately, up to the comsumer to keep abreast of the information. If you have a computer, go to Medicare.gov and establish a personal account online where you can see exactly what is covered and what to do if there are problems. For those you know without tech knowledge, advise them to ask for the hospital ombidsman. These days, Congress is attempting to strip Medicare and Social Security so low that it is currently being seen by some as a welfare program, not a program that we have been paying for our entire lives. In Texas, Medicaid is only for children of low income families ang low income disabled and/or elderly. It ought to be respected as well if we are to see ourselves as people of integrity.

Sounds like the review I read is unjustified. The hospital doesn't own barriatric beds, they are ordered... The meds should have been brought from home and available, especially if she's diabetic... why didn't the daughter give the meds??? Was she told not to gve her the meds??? It seems she's still in ER and that is not the admitting unit, so why wait two hours for the "mom" to get her meds if she already has meds from home??? Did it look like there were no other emergencies, like cardiac arrests, shock, traumas??? ER nurses don't usually get a chance to sit very long and the system has to work for all, primarily emergencies that cannot be delayed (again, codes, shock, trauma, strokes), but I only see one focus, "the Mom" , nothing else about what is happening and why the delays. Some folks have had to wait 2 days in ER because of "no rooms" available, etc. Too much info left out to warrant a justified complaint about the hospital. How would you have done better, given the same rules & regulations and precautions as the hospital staff??? Even the banks are slower than some ERs and they don't have lives to save.
I visit this place regularly to pick up O2. I have had questions about canulas in the past and they have helped to get a proper fit. The technician that comes to do PM on the concentrater is knowledgeable and answers questions. All of the folks that work out of this office are very caring and helpful.
