Thank You Norman Regional by Ertis L. Johnson*

My brother, Eldon Johnson, was just discharged today after having spent 4 weeks and 3 days in your hospital. He had a sever case of pneumonia, in addition to a heart arrhythmia and difficulty swallowing. I was able to spend 11 days with him while he was a patient . I have never imagined that there could be a hospital staff so caring and efficient, working together a team, as your hospital staff has been! My brother could not possibly have received better care! I was very impressed with everyone in Progressive Care and then in 3 NW where he was last week. I want to try to mention a few names, knowing I'll overlook many: Dr Kester was Eldon's primary physician. Dr Whalen and April covered for him part of the time. Dr Camp and Dr Eagle were magnificent as a pulmonary team. Dr Villano (my spelling is poor, I know!) was a great heart doctor! I so much appreciated the expertise and humility of Dr Clark in gastroenterology! I'm sorry I forgot the ENT and Neurology doctor's names! Dr Toal has a very good voice, and explained he might have to operate, but thanks to the work of Charles and others, who saw to it that Eldon's lungs were drained and free of infection, cardio-vascular surgery was not necessary! Eldon also was blessed by your Transport team. I want to mention a few other names -- like Anna, Eldon's favorite aide, Emily, his first social worker, Courtney, etc, in Respiratory Therapy, and the good girls and guys in physical therapy, plus all the RN's like Dan, etc and aides who so lovingly cared for him, taking his blood pressure, hooking up IV's, turning him making him comfortable over and over again. I was so impressed with how effective and efficient the whole unit was in Progressive Care! Everyone treated both of us like we were part of their own family, smiling and asking if there was anything else they could do to make us as comfortable as possible. I've never seen a hospital staff to compare with yours! I live in western Oklahoma, but I think if I ever got sick enough for a hospital stay I would want to come to Norman Regional, not only for the good care, but also to see some of my new friends! Thanks for all your staff has done and continues to do!

Wonderful Care at the ER by Jessy Yaeggy*

I am writing not only as an employee, but as a mom. This past Friday I received the scare of my life when my 3 year old son fell and hit his head, causing a gash in the back of his head which I knew would require stitches, at least. We rushed to the ER on Porter where we were attended to very quickly and expertly. From the time we checked in everyone was polite and very nice and helpful in keeping my rambunctious 3 year old occupied. He was entertained and distracted by everyone trying to keep him talking and not allowing him (or myself) to think too much on his injury. Dr. Wilson was very good at explaining what he was doing and why before I even had a chance to think of the question. In about an hour we were already on our way home with the four staples Dr. Wilson gave him. As a parent, the last thing you want is for your child to hurt in any way, but I can say I was greatly reassured by the care we received while we were here. I wanted to extend my gratitude to everyone we came in contact with and helped my family. Thank you
Beyond Happy! by A former patient*

I am writing because I have recently been a patient at Norman Regional Hospital. I am a dietary vegan and I am beyond happy with the efforts your Nutritional Services department made to ensure my meals were not only satisfying, but also nutritionally sound. I am beyond thrilled to be able to say that the hospital in which I stayed not only comprehended the concept of veganism, but also went out of its way to ensure I was fed well. Also so many of the individuals on the ward I was on went out of their way to be friendly and personable, I regret that I was only able to thank a few of them directly. Thank you for everything.
