Great Cardiac Rehab Program by William "Ken" Kimbrough
Monday, May 18, 2009
I am a recent graduate from Cardiac Rehab. As you know heart attacks can be quite a surprise and leave you with lots of doubts and questions about the future. The Cardiac Rehab Program was extremely beneficial to me, both physically and mentally by providing an initial focus to the recovery process. I don't know where else I could have turned and am certain I could not have made near the same progress on my own. The program provided lots of valuable information but most important of all I learned the value of patience and working within my limits. I am looking forward to utilizing the six-month, free YMCA membership. It certainly adds value to the program. Please accept my thanks for providing a great program and give my thanks to the excellent staff.
Great Student Experience in ED by Evan Skinner
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
I was a nursing student on my final rotation in the Emergency Department. I am writing to strongly recommend high accolade and honor to several staff members. It is rare for a student to have the privilege of such a rich teaching environment as I had in the ED. I was welcomed quickly as a member of the team, expected to share in the work, victories, and tragedies of emergent care. I appreciate how several staff members were vigilant of teaching opportunities for me. I was continually challenged by my preceptor, Mark Madden, to improve my skills and knowledge. I was placed in critical thinking scenarios to augment my confidence and speed of thought. In no other area of clinical practice have I been exposed to the level of teamwork and professionalism as that which was displayed by the ED. My experiences as a student have been varied and my teachers and preceptors have been diverse. No other experience during my time as a student has been more remarkable than my time with the fine staff members of the ER day shift. I would recommend without reservation the NRH emergency department as an excellent teaching site for future students. Therefore, please extend my gratitude to the following RNs, techs, and MDs on day shift: Mark Madden, Lance Williams, Marti, Kelly, Rhonda, Cheryl, Ryan, Heather, April, Jamie, Steve, Michelle, Desirae and Paul. The reputation and value of Norman Regional Hospital exists because of fine professionals such as those listed above.

Regents Professor of Law Emeritus, University of Oklahoma by Daniel G. Gibbens
Thursday, May 7, 2009
Since my bypass surgery in 1992, I have visited your emergency service more than once, this time early Sunday morning with persistent though mild chest pain. I wish to send special appreciation for and to Dr. Kevin Hoos, for his attention to detail, kindness, and advice. Early Sunday morning, his encouragement of abundance of caution to stay for additional testing Monday morning, resulted in Internal Medicine physician Dr. Thomas Merrill arranging a thallium stress test with a happy result and a much relieved patient and wife.
