In the case of needing emergency care, one might think bigger is better, but that is not always the case, especially on the topic of hospitals. We’re going to tell you why you should be going to a micro hospital for any emergency care rather than a community hospital chain, and you might just never go back.
Usually when you go to an emergency room your priority is to be seen quickly. But most of us have experienced, long wait times despite our “emergencies”. It’s rare to find a micro hospital that is overwhelmed with high patient volumes. And your wait time to be seen in the ER will be little to none.
At a micro hospital like Spring Hospital, we’re staffed with highly trained nurses and doctors, and top rated surgeons. Our nurse to patient ratio at a Spring Hospital is 1:1 meaning all attention and care will be on you. Larger hospitals care for many patients at once with at least a 1:3 nurse to patient ratio, which is why wait times are much higher, as are their volumes are much higher.
Because micro hospitals aren’t predisposed to an over whelming influx of patients, the patient quality care is much more satisfactory and more of a premium experience with much better outcomes, than that of a larger hospital. Larger hospitals have a higher rate of compromised patient care.
Micro hospitals offer a wide range of services and aren’t as limited as one might think. They act as a one-stop-shop offering many different levels of acute care. No emergency to too little or too big for a micro hospital, and it might be the best emergency care you’ve ever received.
