Call your doctor before leaving home if you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms

Due to the presence of COVID-19 in our community, visitor restrictions are in place for all Duke clinics and hospitals. For your safety and the safety of others, we recommend patients do not bring a visitor to Duke clinics, if at all possible. If a visitor must accompany a patient, only one individual over 12 years of age is allowed. Patients and visitors will be screened for symptoms upon arrival. Individuals with flu-like symptoms are not allowed. View the complete list of Visitor Restrictions.

Effective immediately, Duke Health is prioritizing and rescheduling some non-emergent or non-critical surgeries, procedures, and appointments. Check our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) page for updates.

Patient Satisfaction Quality Scores

At Duke, we understand that being in the hospital can be a stressful experience. That’s why we take steps to make your hospital stay as pleasant as possible, from providing you with a comfortable, restful environment to treating you with courtesy, dignity and respect.

To help us ensure that patients are pleased with their treatment, we participate in a nationwide survey that measures how satisfied patients are with their care. The survey asks patients at hospitals across the nation what they liked -- and didn’t like -- about their hospital care.

The survey, called HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems), includes questions about different aspects of the patient's care experience. Select results from the HCAHPS survey are available on this site.

You can also access complete results for Duke and compare our patient survey scores with those of other hospitals at
