Nursing Excellence: Hear from Our Patients

“I would like to thank the staff of your hemodialysis center for the excellent care, compassion and professionalism that was extended to me when I was in your center for the first time...All the staff Edie Webster, Stella, Grunda, Lucy, Heidee and Fran made me feel confident that everything was working and that I would be fine...All of these women assisted me in dealing with one of the scariest health events of my life. Keep up the good work and thank you for all you did for me. I will not forget it.”

“This is a letter of commendation about the care my mother received from the beginning to the end of her stay. Starting with the MICU team, she was cared for with respect and concern. Nurses were prompt in responding to her and always caring and sensitive...Once she was transferred to 7 Dean (cardiac step down), she received the kind of care any family wants for a parent...I especially want to commend one of your nurses (even though they were all very special). His name is Warren Glick and he seemed to go above and beyond his duties as a nurse...His sensitivity to my mother and to us was without measure...”

“...surgery lasted ten hours but during that time my family and I were not alone. Mae Carlson, the OR nurse...kept us informed...every peri-operative staff member, from Phyllis Peterson to Tara the unit secretary, took the time to give me an update...PACU nurse Cori Gallagher eased my family’s fears by allowing us to visit with my father in his immediate post operative period. On Saturday morning, we were greeted by Dawn Pavlu, RN...words cannot express the exceptional care I witnessed my father receive in the ICU.”

“My nurse in the labor and delivery department was Sandra Iglesias. What an amazing nurse! In my opinion, Ms. Iglesias went above and beyond to help make me feel comfortable...The nurses in the overnight ward were equally competent. Elaine Byrne was one of the caring nurses...I am sure you know how hardworking your staff is and how caring they are...I appreciate them for all they did for me and my family. Thank you for such a wonderful hospital with a great staff.”
