    I have been in SUMC many times over the last 20 years and had two children delivered there and although it differs to what I am used to, I never was treated badly. The difference from the new part to the old is quite marked but expected and I have been in bed in both at one time or another and visited other patients there on a number of occasions. I fail to understand the description given here in an earlier post but I will defend SUMC everytime I hear a bad word said about it. You are in the Philippines. Things are different here. And I have seen inappropriate behavior from some "Aliens" at one time or another but as far as I am concerned, their attitude was ''Inappropriate", not the treatment they were receiving.

    When my husband was hospitalized (probably 2014) in SUMC for pneumonia related to his COPD, he had his own oxygen concentrator and we were given permission by his doctor to use it while he was hospitalized. We had it checked by the maintenance dept as required, etc.
    Upon release from the hospital, they present your bill, which they require to be taken care of before you leave. We noticed a charge for using hospital oxygen and pointed out we needed that removed. They refused to remove it and we refused to pay it, thus they were not going to let him leave the hospital. I paid the rest of bill, minus that, and they still would not let him leave. So, when nobody was looking, we snuck out....like we were really doing something wrong....anyway, the floor nurse called the guards to stop us, like we were robbing the place. Long story short, we made it out, but you bet your buns, when it came time to get my daughter's school clearance at the end of the year, we had to pay that stupid fee!!

    Just amazing - you should never have had to go through that experience, it is pure craziness. The only consoling fact is that you were 100% in the right.
