I had the privilege of staying as an inpatient in the Porter Campus last month. As much as I hated having to be in the hospital for the first time in my life (other than when I was born) it was a pleasant experience. I started out in the ED and my memory of that short stay is foggy but Dr. Wells, Dr. Fitzpatrick, Ryan, and Mike S. took wonderful care of me there. Dr. Vogel took over while I was in the hospital and was very attentive to my needs and had wonderful bedside manner. He went above and beyond in alleviating my wife's anxiety and was very efficient in his care. The nurses (Amanda, Cherry, Jason, Judy, Kilta, Jenny, and Pam) were very pleasant and took great care of my needs and anticipating future needs. The aides (Diana, Tessa, Jennifer, Lerlene, Brandon, and Tina) were also very pleasant and responsive to my needs. Sherry and Jackie in PT were wonderful as well. Brooke from case management did a wonderful job in helping with post-hospitalization expenses. Rhonda from EVS did a wonderful job in keeping my room in great condition - my wife can tell you that isn't an easy job with me around! I tried to remember everybody's name but I am sure I have left somebody out because I know there were many people behind the scenes that were involved in my care. I think, overall, a big 'Thumbs Up' for my stay.
