TELEPHONE PHISHING SCAM
Kirby Medical Center was recently alerted to a telephone phishing scam that appears to originate from a Kirby Medical Center telephone number. If you receive a telephone call from the hospital and do not recognize the caller, please hang up and contact Kirby Medical Center directly at (217) 762-2115. The person answering our telephone can confirm whether the person you spoke with is an employee. We will never call to ask for a credit card or social security number, nor will we solicit any type of service. Thank you for placing your trust in Kirby Medical Center.
PATIENT SATISFACTION SURVEYS- NOW ONLINE
For over five years now, Kirby Medical Center has been sending patient satisfaction surveys to randomly selected patients. Those surveys have been administered on paper through the mail and filled out by hand.
However, in addition to the paper surveys, Kirby Medical Center began administering patient satisfaction surveys electronically via email in August. Randomly selected patients will receive a survey in either paper format or email format, but not both. Kirby Medical Center hopes that the availability of the survey in email form will add an additional convenience to patients as part of the hospital’s continued efforts to make it easier for them to submit feedback about patient experiences.
Both surveys contain the exact questions - regardless of the survey delivery method. And, as with the paper ones, the e-surveys are completely confidential.
