The Beat - Week 20
Please Enjoy Our Nurses Week Appreciation Video!
Human is the Reason
We have a new section in The Beat to highlight all of the wonderful things that our staff and nurses do for their community. This week, we have a cool review to share from a couple who wanted to show appreciation for the staff on the maternity floor.
To the Management,
First of all, I have already submitted a very positive Google review but that doesn't give justice to the amazing staff that helped us through this trying time. My wife and I checked in early April 20,2020 into the ER and they recommended we just go straight to the Maternity Floor so we did and I am really glad we did. We started with an amazing Nurse, Laura, she was very thorough and personable. She wasn't afraid to take initiative with my wife's pain management within the limits of the Doctor's direction. Not only did she take excellent care of my wife but she even showed concern for me. She did an incredible job keeping us informed on what we could expect due to the medical complications that were arising which gave us some comfort during this stressful time. We later found out the complexity of the issues presented to your staff based on policies between hospitals and specialized medical personnel to help negotiate these obstacles. We were blessed with another great nurse, Sharla, who helped us with our last child who had a lengthy stay in the NICU. She even remembered us which made her feel like part of the family and did a tremendous job helping my wife recover from her surgery. I had to leave early to take care of our other children but my wife told me that while I was gone she had another nurse named Whitney and that she absolutely loved her as well and that our first nurse, Laura, checked in to say hello. I am truly grateful for the incredible staff on the Maternity floor and I truly feel as though these amazing women are apart of our family as well. Thank you Valley Hospital.
