Wonderful Care by Employee of former patient*

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

My mother was hospitalized here in February. It was a very difficult time for me and my family. My parents live in Texas, but we decided to bring her here. I work with such a great team here and trusted them to give my mother the care she needed. In the ER I was so impressed and humbled by the great care my mother received. Dr. Hoos and the nursing staff were so caring and thorough. We felt very blessed to have her on PCU that Dr. Kester and Dr. Ryan were overseeing her care, and all the nursing staff was excellent. Just wanted you to know how proud I am to work here and how great the care is.

Thank You! by Family of former patient*

From the moment we walked into the building we were treated with kindness and respect. Everyone we met from the housekeeper who asked if there was anything more she could do to the chaplain who provided us comfort. The ED, ICU and Palliative Care staff were all outstanding! The hospital was incredibly clean and staff provided for all our needs. It was a very tough 72 hours for us and your wonderful staff took very good care of us all. Thank you so very much.

NRH Emergency Room by Amanda Gage*

I had my 5 yr old son in the NRH ER on 3/6/11... He woke up in the middle of the night having a hard time breathing and scared to death. My husband and I rushed him to the ER in complete fear. We were taken care of from the minute we walked in the door until the minute we left. Dr. Moslander was amazing with my little boy. He talked to him and explained everything that he was doing and calmed him down. It was the best experience ever at NRH! Thank you to the doctor, nurses, and RT for taking care of my little boy.

I was scheduled for an ultrasound and blood work at 9 am today. I was told to arrive at 8:30 am. I took the morning off from work thinking it would be a long morning of waiting around. I was wrong! I was in and out by 9:15 am!!!! Way to go Norman Regional!

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!
