With the growth of mobile devices and internet usage, and a culture change where patients are researching illnesses before seeing their doctors, HospitalAdvisor has come at a good time for patients to make the right decision about health care
As patients, we only go into a hospital if it is a serious medical matter. And yet, we know so little about hospital treatment, so it’s difficult for a patient to know which hospital is right for them. We rely almost entirely on what a doctor may suggest and although the doctor may make a good suggestion, patients have to be engaged to ensure the best possible outcomes. HospitalAdvior should be used as an additional tool and does not replace your doctor
On average, how much time did the medical staff (doctors, nurses and others) spend with you/the patient each day (in a 24 hour period)?
My son was misdiagnosed with flesh-eating bacteria and was recommended to transfer to Adventist with surgery, as the doctors said he is likely to die if he is not operated on immediately. I transferred him to Queen Mary at the end and he was then diagnosed with a superficial under-skin infection and was discharged without operation in a few days.
