Exellent ICU care by Jeri Giddens

Friday, October 24, 2014

My sister is a cancer patient and was admitted to ICU on Oct. 16 when she started experiencing severe side effects due to chemo. She was in very serious condition when she was admitted to ICU. All the doctors and nurses in ICU were excellent with her. The were all very caring and compassionate and did an outstanding job of taking care of her. I was extremely impressed with the care she received. I was visiting my sister from out of town, (I live in Alabama) and when I had to return home. I would have been very distressed about leaving her if I had not known that she was in such excellent hands with everyone (the doctors AND the nurses) in ICU. Thank you to all the doctors and nurses who took such exceptional care of my sister, Janet Melton. A special thanks to Nurses Cindy, Paul, Kenney, Kelsie, and Vonna.

I want to express my appreciation to Nurse Anissa for not only her professional skills, but her attitude in showing care to me as a patient. I am 86 years of age and had not used the services of a hospital since 1947, all new experience to me. Anissa made my stay as comfortable as possible. Tks! Anissa Harold

I would like to express how impressed I was with your facility and staff during my last visit to the healthplex on October 6th. Every person we encountered was amazing! Ebony in the lab was especially fantastic. My daughter was very nervous about getting her blood drawn for the first time. Ebony made the experience so much easier. She made sure to make my daughter feel comfortable and made sure we were helped in radiology for x-rays before she left us. She made a huge differences in our visit. THANKS!

Knocking on Heaven's Door by Patient

Thursday, October 9, 2014

Mr. Whitaker we are so appreciative of NRHS and the manner in which all of your employees care about their patients.

I was admitted to the HealthPlex in August as a result of the caring staff on the fourth floor. Because I have been working with the staff on the fourth floor while construction is taking place on the fifth floor, we are not strangers. One day I was returning from lunch and by the grace of God pushed the fourth floor instead of the fifth. When I came out of the elevator Pam noticed I did not look good and asked if I was OK. I blew it off to physical therapy as I could hardly walk from leg cramps.

The receptionist and the nurses did not buy that and observed me as I went to the men’s room. While in the men’s room I heard a knock on the door and it was a lady’s voice. When I came out there were four nurses there each with their own special medical equipment ready to check me out. They did not take no for an answer and they took me down to the emergency room. Little did I know that my potassium level was 7.5 and I had had a bit of heat exhaustion. From the emergency room to my five day stay on the fourth floor I was treated with exceptional care by all.

My wife said the text I sent Amy said it all and thought it would be good for you to know my feelings about my experience. The following is a copy of the text,

"I am feeling better as days go by. Will be seeing Dr. Williams tomorrow. It’s been a rough ride. Today I got David Whitaker’s address to Helen and I can let him know just how the 4th floor staff goes out of their way to save people’s lives. I’m sure that my life was spared thanks to your staff and you and your doctor friend. Totally a team effort. I love you all and will never in my life forget what you have done for me and my family. Today I spent three hours with my granddaughters, thinking that just a week ago today I was knocking on heaven’s door. Today was a good October 9, 2014 day."

AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE!! by current employee

Saturday, August 30, 2014

My husband normally goes to the VA Medical Center for everything but I put him on my insurance. He had back surgery Thursday 8/28. He said his experience at Porter campus same day surgery was AWESOME! While I can't remember everyone that took care of him they were excellent and very professional. Dr. Cochran is an excellent dr. I am proud to say I work for Norman Regional. They do take care of their patients and patient's family.
