You can arrange for payment of medical bills later if you are short of money now. The amount charged for lab tests and x-ray is extremely high. We need more doctors in this area who specialize. We need more nurses in this area. The hospital policy of visiting was good. Doctors always treat their patients with respect. Doctors never recommended surgery (an operation) unless there are no other way to solve the problem. Doctors caused some people to worry a lot because they didn’t explain any problems to patients. Sometimes doctors caused their patients unnecessary medical expenses.
QUESTIONNAIRE Doctors were very careful to check everything when examining their patients. Doctors didn’t advice patients about way to avoid illness and injury. This hospital lacks of something need to provide complete care. Sometimes doctors took unnecessary risks in treatment their patients. You want to receive the care from the same doctor who provided care. You hardly ever saw the same doctor when you were taken care. Doctor provided continual care as necessary. The nurse was skillful in helping you.

The nurse was often too disorganized to appear claim. The nurse asked a lot of questions, but once she found the answers, she didn’t seem to do anything. You wish the nurse would tell you about the results of your tests more than she does. The nurse should explained thing in a simple language. The nurse always gave complete enough explanations of why tests were ordered. The nurse should be more attentive than she was. The nurse was just not patient enough.
QUESTIONNAIRE When you needed to talk to someone, you could talk to the nurse about your problems. The nurse was too busy at the desk to spend time to talking with you. You were tired of the nurse talking down to you. The nurse was a person who could understand how you felt. The nurse should be friendlier than she was. The nurse communicated the patients’ conditions and needs to other nurses and doctors so that all health care providers were working together to care for patients. No complication from treatment occurred during care.
