This website shows a dog lying on a patient in bed. This is wrong because it is a contamination problem. MRSA, C.difficile and other contagious diseases could be passed between pet therapy dogs and patients. This is a major health concern. I suggested only pet the dog, not on the bed, and sanitize the patient's hands.

It clearly states BHU has therapy dog service. Reality... there was no regular pet therapy service for the past 18 months.

 Privacy is very important. ORMC upper management has a "need to know problem". They do not follow HIPAA. When you are entering the hospital, submit a request restriction of personal information.
 This is from ORMC's website:
"Right to Request Restrictions: You have the right to request a restriction or limitation on the medical information we use or disclose about you for treatment, payment or health care operations. You also have the right to request a limit on the medical information we disclose about you to someone who is involved in your care or the payment for your care, like a family member or friend. For example, you could ask that we not use or disclose information about a surgery you had."

ORMC is a private, not-for-profit hospital. Our hospital is no longer a community hospital and not transparent. A community hospital and its medical staff should be able to get to care that is coordinated through the eyes of the patient at a much faster pace than a large hospital company. Denying my request for a copy of their annual report lacks transparences.
