Emergency Department and Trauma

Notes of thanks

Emergency Department/Heart Unit: When I came to your ER, I thought I had the flu but found out I had a heart condition. I'm still overwhelmed by your facility and the care I received. Elise in the ER and her team scrutinized every symptom and vital sign to determine my illness. She was knowledgeable and skilled, yet friendly and compassionate. I stayed in the heart unit over night. The polished wood floors and French doors made it seem less like and institution. The staff at the heart unit was incredible. A young nurse, Melissa; an RN, Elizabeth; and two nurse practitioners named Teresa and Tamera, really stand out in my mind. They were professional and knowledgeable while being patient, friendly and compassionate. The people that performed the sonogram on my heart and the heart catheter procedure worked together like a well-oiled machine. They immediately instilled confidence and were also kind and patient. There were others who attended me who were every bit as memorable, but I didn't know their names. I hope you can thank and congratulate everyone on the roster in those departments. They should know their efforts were appreciated.
