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!
Great Care by Daniel Ryan*

I went to the Norman HeathPlex on 3/29/16 with some chess pains. The front desk did not delay in getting me back and hooked up for an EKG. Come to find out I was in AFIB. The nurse in the ER was very nice and kept me informed. Once I was moved up to my room (4703) Sarah the RN took the best care of me that I ever received. She explained what was going on and was very friendly. I tell all my friends, coworkers, etc. if you are having complications with your heart Norman HealthPlex is the place to go, Plus I received a follow up call the day after I was released from the hospital. WOW what great care.
Very blessed and thankful to NRHS by Family Member of Patient*

My family and I want to be sure that the ED doctor, nurse, department aide, and EMSSTAT paramedics that cared for our mother, know that we appreciate their exceptional kindness during what ended up being our last moments with her.
Mom was transported to the ED from an assisted living facility after a fall. Dr. Bradford performed tests and it was learned that she had a broken shoulder. The nurse was so kind in making sure that mom didn't experience pain and the aide was very gentle when immobilizing her arm/shoulder. We appreciate the EMSSTAT paramedics who were so helpful in transporting mom back to Rivermont. Mom passed during the night at the assisted living facility, but we feel very blessed that the experience at Norman Regional was one of kindness and patience – she was greeted and treated by smiling faces.
While waiting for transport by EMSSTAT, mom opened her eyes, pointed to Heaven and said that she kissed daddy good night. Mom then closed her eyes and went back to resting peacefully with a smile on her face. Our dad passed last February and it is believed that he was there to guide her.
I wish I knew the names of each of the emergency services individuals that interacted with mom that evening so that I could thank each by name. The experience could have been a very different one, but it wasn’t…and for that, we feel very blessed and thankful to NRHS.
Excellent Environment & Care by Alishia*

I am from Kansas and was recommended to NRHS from a friend four years ago for a specific surgery. Was there for about a week, had excellent care with caring staff. Four years later, needed another surgery and knew the Dr. that performed my last operation could perform this one as well. They made my stay comfortable and made my hubby welcomed there too. Thank you to all of the staff and medical profession for being there!

I just wanted to say Thank You to all the staff at Norman Regional Health System. Your hospital and staff are top notch. Some of the things I noticed about your hospital is how quiet it was, how clean it was and just how calm and happy the staff appeared. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have worked in many places and know that when the services are excellent, the staff must be happy. So hats off to all the administrators as well. We will always be grateful this hospital serves our community.

I had a wonderful experience during my stay. I had wonderful nurses and assistants. The names I'm not sure if I remember correctly but Weston, Tamesha (I'm not sure on that name). They were the nurses and then Christie was an assistant.
