My mother was admitted to your hospital on Thanksgiving Day this year and remained in the hospital for six (6) day. She was released on Tuesday of the following week. During this stay she rec'd to utmost of care and attention from all of the doctors and nurses who cared for her care. All family and friends who visited her were very cordially greeted at the hospital enterance door and even upon there departure were wished a great day. Dr. Victor Trevino and his staff demonstrated the best of care, not taking away anything from the rest of the volunteers and maintenance crew. As a military veteran that have been in a few hospitals I witnessed the most dedicated medical staff that I have not seen in any other hospital. My compliments on such a great staff all the way up from the volunteers to the kitchen staff, medical staff and attendants. My mom's name is Maria L. Trevino from Falfurrias, TX and was admitted with a mild heart attack on Thanksgiving Day. May The Good Lord continue to bless your hospital with continued dedicated staff and a Very blessed and Merry Christmas to all. Lino Trevino St 305 Beverly Dr Schertz, TX 78154 210-632-3153
Tips & Advices
Many hospitals have their own websites that include information about services offered and how to contact personnel. But you can also search online, in the phone book, and through health and medical-focused review websites.
Medical service prices vary according to the hospital, the type of procedure, and many regulations. The price that a patient actually pays will depend on their insurance coverage policies. If they do not have health insurance, patients may establish payment plans with the health care provider directly.
Most Americans older than 65 are insured under the Medicare program for emergency hospital visits and basic medical care. Whether you are about to turn 65 or already have, you should familiarize yourself with the Medicare program and the benefits it provides. Medicare can work in conjunction with a workplace or other private health plan. Seniors should also take the time to establish legal documents concerning future medical care and end-of-life procedures. These include a living will, advance medical directive, and related documents.
Visitation rules vary by hospital, but in general, any biological or legal family member of a patient is allowed to visit them at an appropriate time and at the patient’s discretion. Friends are typically  allowed to visit at the patient’s and their caregiver’s discretion. A patient may also designate a support person to make decisions on their behalf regarding visitation.
Ambulances are driven and staffed by medical professionals who will transport patients to the closest hospital that can provide the specific services needed. Some hospitals specialize in certain types of emergency care - facilities that specialize in trauma, heart attacks, stroke victims, and children are a few common examples. The patient being transported has the right to request a particular hospital, but the ambulance personnel may refuse this request if they have reason to believe treatment is required as soon as possible. Paramedics may require you to sign a waiver before transporting you to a hospital that you request.
