I was admitted to the hospital on Friday, February 1, 2013, for chest pains. I have had three myocardial infarctions in the past and I was very afraid that this could be “The Big One.”
I was transferred to the fourth floor of the South Tower and had the experience of a lifetime, if you want to put it like that.
Not only was the tower beautiful – the rooms large and private – the most important thing was the care and attention I received. It was WONDERFUL, everyone was caring and understanding and was exceptional.
I had Suzanne for my day nurse, and Jules for the night nurse. My techs, Tabitha, Chelsea and Maria took great care of me. I am so impressed that I am telling everyone.
Even when after a heart cath and I couldn’t remember why I called for help, they all were patient and caring and even gave me a note pad to write down so I could remember.
You have a wonderful staff on the fourth floor of the South Tower. They all need a special award for the care they provide in situations such as heart issues.
I thank everyone who cared for me, Dr. Tran, Marsha Beckett, my nurse, the techs and the food service staff. My discharge was a breeze and I will always remember this experience.
Thank you Boone Hospital, I will not go anywhere else. You are #1 in my books.
