Akron Children’s Hospital

Name of Hospital: Akron Children’s Hospital

City, State/Province, Country: Akron, OH, USA

Number of Stars: 4

Comment: It was a very good program, the nurses were kind and caring, except for a handful. They had trained therapy dogs come to the ward every other night or so. The food was good and they didn’t shove supplemental drinks down your throat. It was an adolescent Ward but it was very good. My only negative expierence was I was forced to take daily medication despite my request. Overall the stay was good and helped stabilize me.

Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): Inpatient

Any other identities/marginalizations (i.e. race/gender/sexuality) that could have influenced your stay?: I’m transgender and they were extremely accepting of that, the floor was co-ed and nothing was divided by gender.
