Angels in the NICU by Katye Wood*

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

In May 2010, I came into the HealthPlex 33 1/2 weeks pregnant. I thought I was coming in due to complications of an infection and was sent up to triage, where it was discovered I was in preterm labor. It was too late to stop my labor. I was rushed to labor and delivery where I was met by a team of nurses that I swear must hide their wings in their scrubs! They were so compassionate and understanding. This was my first child and they continued to reassure me everything was going to be ok. My daughter Addison was born weighing 4lbs 8oz she was taken to the NICU where a team of nurses took care of her. I would like to thank all of the staff at Norman for taking such great care of my daughter. She will be six months old next week and is doing great! A special thanks goes out to Colleen, Anne, and Lesa. Thank you so much for everything! I really appreciated the extra time you spent with my family and me answering all of our questions. We really do appreciate everything! You are true angels!

On Sunday, October 24, 2010, I was on a flight from Houston, Texas to Tampa, Florida. A call went out for medical assistance on a passenger.
I answered the call and joined an already engaged paramedic, Chief Eddie Sims and a nurse named Catherine, from Houston. We identified ourselves and proceeded to work as a team on an ill passenger. I am writing to compliment Mr. Sims on his skill and professionalism in a rather tense situation at 37,000 feet above the earth, and with limited equipment. Eddie was very competent, and as a vascular and plastic surgeon with many years experience, appreciated both his help and that of Catherine.
My daughter recently had a child at the new Norman Regional Hospital, and the care there was also wonderful.

Thank You! Thank You! by Mother of a patient*

My daughter, a freshman at OU, came to the ER Sunday night after I frantically made much as I could via text and cell phone from Plano, Texas. Her arm was swelling, was in pain and it sounded like she had staph infection. She got to the ER around 10:35 and when I spoke to her at 10:45, she had already been seen and was about to talk with the doctor. She was out of the ER within two hours and said she received really good care. I just want to send out a really, really big thank you to all the staff that took care of my precious girl. It's so difficult being so far away but very comforting to know that there is a top-notch hospital close by.

Incredible PCU Care by Mary Ann Gibson*

As I prepare to exit after by brief stay at Norman Regional, I wanted to let you know of my care here. My care was very good, professionalism of your medical staff from Dr. Shahsavari, the nurses were so good at their careers. I’m speaking of Sharon Davis and Anna. These two nurses made me feel happy even though I was sick. I hope these three would be recognized in some way. Dr. Shahsavari is so great and a very good doctor, made me get well faster, he’s a magnificent doctor. Thank you for your time and attention.

I had an outpatient procedure today and thought I would drop you a line concerning the fantastic care I received by the nursing staff at the origianl facility. Everyone was so caring and attentive, specifically the nurses in the recovery unit. Theer was never a moment when I felt I was alone or my needs were not top priority. There was also a personal exchange between two nurses that I overheard and it was really refreshing to hear such a postive conversation. The entire staff that took care of me did an excellent job and they are to be commended. Thank you.
