I've had 2 ER experiences this year for my tween son, and we are OK with the service we got. The first time he swallowed some wire from his orthodontics, so he wasn't put at the top of the list for ER, but after 2-3 hours we were out with instructions and radiographs. That was about 4-5 pm in February. The last time was this week at 11 in the morning Tuesday. He had agonizing pain and was taken in quickly, seen by an RN within about 20 minutes, had blood and urine sample, given some narcotics for the pain, then taken to radiology about 20 minutes later. They found what they expected, a kidney stone in the ureter. Then we saw the doctor for a couple minutes and were let go with Rxs. The clerk came to our room to get info for insurance. We had different insurance in February than we do now; the bill we paid was around $500 for that visit with deductibles and co pays. We now have a high deductible plan so not sure what the bill will be - maybe in the $2000 range. I of course will review the invoice for accuracy. I took my foster child there for a broken arm in 08 and they were very prompt with her, as best as they could be, sedated her, reset and splinted the bones, then we went to UMC for follow up (CC insurance). They said the doctor set her bone very well and all they were going to do was put a cast on, no other pulling or surgery necessary. Yes, hospitals charge $10 for one pain pill, and the person to dispense it, deliver it, and the cup you drank the water out of. Most of it they intend to write off for business tax issues. I was at Mountain View several years ago and waited 6 hours in the ER waiting room for them to sonogram my leg for a DVT. I was not happy, in lots of pain after an accident, and virtually ignored until I hobbled up and complained at the desk. Then it was 5 minutes. In 2012 my mother in law, while visiting, tried to be seen for HBP and HHR at UMC ER, and after 30 minutes we drove her to Centennial, she was in after 5 minutes, given medicine, admitted overnight and better the next day. I'd recommend Centennial unless you are down south, then I'm sure you'll find care that way, but this is the best ER in the north part of town. Don't know about "regular" service there. Depends on doctor, I suppose.

And the 3 mos I stayed there they were wonderful. There was another young girl which she shared a room withafter she got out of the ICU which was was also involved in avery serious motorcycle accident in 2003 which she was the passanger on the bike the driver died instantly leaving her severely injured both legs were broken skull fracture ETC>>. Even after thy had to make room for other patient on the overflow rooms they made sure they stayed together not seperating them cause they got to be friends andthey did well together and thoght they would dobetter recovery wise if they stayed together knowing they almost had the same injurys. And they did! So I give my deepest thanks toUM to their companiate care that my daughter received . And exspeically saving her life, and the life of the young lady in my daughters room.
My name is Vera. I'm 82 years old, I was in this hospital and discharged Feb 19th 2010. I want to tel lyou about this wonderful nurse, her name is Judy, she is so caring understanding. The most wonderful nurse, she has time to listen to your problems. They are so lucky to have such a wonderful nurse at this hospital. I don't know what you pay her, but it isn't enough. If every nurse was like her, they wouldn't have no complaints or problems. I will always remember her how good she was to me, and with all the other patients. I'm at home now, not doing so good but with God's help I'm going to make it. Thanks, Vera
