If you’ve ever been to Fairfield county, you’d understand why this hospital is as hyped up as it is. The service in another hospitals close to Stamford will tell you why (lol). This place has always been known for its amazing service, mostly because the doctors and nurses here literally devote all their time (including their personal lives) into tending for the sick. I’ve never seen a doctor who has taken a vacation here. And while that’s good for us, it’s not so much for them. If there’s one problem with this practice, it’s that the finance and billing department sucks. They will just not help you, no matter what.

This is a one good looking hospital- Lots of new equipment, facilities, rooms (did they renovate?) and the staff is nice and professional. Unbeatable service.

General concern I have towards people who don’t have insurance or who are self employed and have to cover the medical charges themselves: this post is for all of you.The other day, my 5 year old kid was screaming in pain, saying her ears were killing her. I checked her temperature and she was running a 101 degree fever and her heart rate was faster than normal. I called up our family pediatrician and he said it was best we took her to the ER, just to be certain. He said he would meet us there. So without a second thought, I rushed her to the closest hospital, Stamford, and took her to the ER. The best part about ERs is that sometimes you get brownie points for having a screaming child- you aren’t always drawn into the triage system.

Anyway, we had a doctor come and check out my baby girl. He said she had a minor ear infection and needed to be treated, but was free to go back home the same day. He asked the nurse to give her some Tylenol and put her on a dose of antibiotics- and that she would be okay. We stayed there not more than an hour, and were said we could leave with the medication. We may have left before our home doc came to visit us at the hospital, because he came back to our place an hour later. By then, baby Pat had fallen asleep and was looking better. Her heart rate had also reduced, significantly.

But my heart rate increased significantly the next day when I saw the hospital bill. They sent us a bill of $1500 for a simple ER visit. Since I was self-employed, they suggested that I had to pay over half the cost of it. They charged $15 for the Tylenol alone. And the antibiotics was separate. So, let me get this straight. For less than an hour in the ER, you have the audacity to charge me over $800? Talk about being ruthless- I tell you, this hospital just sucks money out of you in whatever way they possibly can. They know that you’re not going to stop coming to the ER, because she’s my daughter. This form of legalized extortion will NOT be tolerated.

You think people who get wheeled in by the ambulance don’t have to wait? Hold your horses. Just yesterday I had a serious allergic reaction at a party and they called the ambulance. I was conscious, so they told me they were taking me to Stamford. I’d never been, so I agreed. Whatever. Then after they wheeled me to the front, they took me off the stretcher and put me in a wheelchair. This was alarming, but I went with it. Then, they asked me to wait. I’m sorry, but WHAT? Can you not see I am reacting to a serious allergy? I had to wait for 30 minutes like that. In that pain and uncomfortable state.
