Saved my life! by Terrie Bell*

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

I've gone to NRH for over 16 yrs. for everything from stitches in the e.r. to a LIFE SAVING CT BIOPSY for lung cancer that they did for no charge to me! I had decent health insurance in the past but after several major surgeries I was forced to go on disability & medicare. After finding a suspicious spot on a routine chest xray, done & read by NRH Dr.s, I needed a very expensive CT Biopsy & called to see how much out of pocket I was looking at & was about to put it off when the incredible staff told me about NRH's special program that if you were disabled & had insurance there would be no cost to you! Seriously! They found cancer, I had 1/2 my lung removed & DONE! Because of NRH finding the cancer so early, I needed no further treatment! I go every 6 months for follow up & it's been 3 years clear now. Now I've had mamograms, ultrasounds, ct scans, labs, knee replacement, cervical fusion & more over the years, all at NRH so I trust them with my life, and that of my family but this? Doing this testing for me, without making me feel like I was taking charity, which I was, SAVED MY LIFE! I've, through no choice, had to have surgeries, including my lobectomy for lung cancer at other hospitals & at 59 yrs. old, can say they don't compare to NRH! The staff, all of them, have always been so professional, respectful and compassionate no matter which department or position, you can tell they LIKE working there. I will never be able to say enough about how great this hospital is, my only regret is my taking so long to post this! SORRY! I LOVE ALL OF YOU AT NRH (especially Linda Robinson) Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Terrie Bell

Thank You to the Nursing Staff and Doctors in the Pallative Care unit at Norman Regional Hospital for taking such Good Care of my Aunt recently, she was 93 Years Old. I stayed the night with her the last 4 Days of her life and I was amazed at the care she received to ensure she was pain free and kept as Comfortable as possible until she passed. I was also very impressed with the Hospitality I was shown while staying with her. She was one of my favorite People in the World, and I will miss her Dearly but wanted to pass along this compliment of a Job Well Done!

My dad was brought in with major unstoppable bleeding after teeth extraction. Our RN David McKinnon was so wonderful. Because of him our horrible experience was bearable. Thank you so much David. Norman Regional don't lose him.

While visiting the OU Spring Game, my daughter, who is 6, spotted one of your medics, Mr. Carter, in the food court area. Her dream is to become a "helicopter medic" when she grows up. (I'm an EMT/FF in southern OK.) She asked if I would see if he would mind taking a picture with her. She is a huge Sooner fan, so seeing a "Boomer Sooner medic" absolutely made her day. He was so kind and never hesitated in taking a picture with my daughter. Thank you so much for having such awesome employees!! Again, tell him thank you for us a second time! Have a blessed day!
