Let me start by saying there is nothing worse than having to bring your child to the ER thinking he is going to have his appendix removed. I am an employee of the hospital and have been for a little over a year. In that time I have dealt with many people and personalities. Last night when my nine-year-old son doubled over in pain I automatically thought the worse. Upon arrival to the ER I could tell the staff was very busy. They were very polite upon arrival and very upfront about wait times. I appreciated that very much. The real magic happened when we were taken to a room and Amber came in to talk to us. From the moment she walked in the door she was kind, and patient and very understanding to my son and also to my fear. Dr. Kite was the physician that took care of my son and he was by far one of the most sensitive and compassionate doctors I have had the pleasure of dealing with. He was very honest with my son and told him every step of what was going on. The happy ending here is that my son didn't have to have surgery. I would like to commend the people who not only treated my son but actually cared about him. Dr. Kite and Amber were so amazing during a time that was very stressful for me. I really appreciate how we were treated. They did a great job and I cannot say ‘thank you’ enough.

I want to express my appreciation for every staff member of the emergency department for their professional, courteous and caring treatment of my son last night. From the front desk, to the triage and admitting staff, to the nursing assistant, nursing staff, radiology staff, to include the exceptional care Dr. Frantz gave my son, as well as by the discharge staff, there was not one sour note played in the excellent orchestration of the care received by my family. Stress will always be associated with taking a loved one to the emergency room. What is amazing is how our Emergency department lived up to NRHS's motto to provide 'the human side of healing.' Thanks again, to all the dedicated staff in the ED.

I have a family member that was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at Norman Regional Hospital. You have a top notch facility. I have never been better informed by the doctors and nurses regarding treatment and everyday status. My family member has been treated with the utmost care from the very beginning. Thank you!
In Safe Hands at Moore ER by Anonymous
Wednesday, August 5, 2009
I was very pleased with the care I received from the nurses and doctors at the Moore Medical Center ER. I felt like I was in very safe hands. Dr. George Gordan and Steve Edwards, RN, made me feel very much at ease and I was very impressed with the way they expressed their compassion with a simple pat on the back to let me know that everything was going to be okay. Everything was explained to me in detail before any tests were run to make sure that I was well informed. I was impressed with the kindness of the staff and how secure I felt during and after my visit to the facility.
