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.

Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital
Most of the reviews I read prior to my sister coming to Rawson-Neal were true, I doubted them for a while because she seemed to be doing fine in their care. But they released my sister out of their care with no jacket, shoes, money, and did not even notify me when she was released. The only thing she received when they let her out was a plastic bag with 1/4 of her prescription bottle full. I even flew in from a different state to try and help keep her under supervision and two days after I left they put her on the streets with nothing. Finally my family and I drove to another state to find her wondering and lost and we brought her to my home. The hospitals here said she should have never been released and wanted to keep her at the hospital and the social workers and doctors wouldn't even return my calls or my attorneys!

My sister recently spent 10 days here after being moved from Spring Valley Hospital where she was in ICU after heart valve replacement surgery. When shecwas first transferred we were horrified after reading the reviews. The facility is older but very clean. The staff, from reception to charge nurses, were helpful, attentive and professional. She got the physical therapy she needed and was released when she completed the required tests. Unfortunately these hospitals don't discharge until late evening and she left in a freezing rain storm in the dark of night. All in all the experience was positive. Some of the reviews on yelp are old.

Was sent to Centennial Hlils ER after sitting for 4 hours at SW Medical Urgent Care with a dislocated shoulder only to find that after they x-rayed, that they couldn't even treat a dislocation. The horrible experience at SW Medical was quickly alleviated by the wonderful staff at Centennial Hills ER. In and out in about 2 hours, with shoulder reset, even with sedation. Very fast attention and treatment, even during a shift change. I can't speak for inpatient treatment, but I will never waste my time again at an Urgent Care facility for anything more than a cold and will head straight to Centennial Hills ER.

This place is so much better than the other hospitals in Vegas. They actually focus on real treatment and keep you busy in groups. I can't say enough great things about how they helped me get better. The doctor actually listened to me and helped me understand my illness, and my social worker really cared about helping me get stable. Truly amazing place to find hope and help!

My family had the best experience here compared to the other hospitals in Las Vegas. We were lost until we found Desert Parkway. The staff and doctors took very good care of us. They were very kind and helpful. I would highly recommend this hospital to anyone who wants the best treatment.

My Son had to be flown in from Needles, Ca for serious burns. The entire staff has been very caring and kind. My Son is still there in the burn unit and I couldn't be happier with the care he is receiving. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of my Son.

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.
