Rideout saves lives
This is a letter praising the local heroes at Rideout Hospital that save
lives every day and often go unnoticed. These talented professionals provide
quality care close to home every single day.
I am writing this letter in regards of the excellent, compassionate care
my mother received by your staff as she was under their care for a open
heart surgery procedure and a valve repair March1-11.
Your staff was exceptional in all aspects from the moment our mom, Gurminderjeet
Gill, arrived via ambulance to your ER, through her three-day pre-op stay
on the cardiac floor through the cardiovascular intensive care unit and
until her discharge post-op. Each staff member was kind, compassionate,
culturally sensitive, and very knowledgeable about her medical issues.
To name a few staff members that we want to acknowledge:
Jill Schultz, she diligently answered all of our medication questions.
Respiratory therapy staff: Jinder, Ryan, Denise and Katelyn.
Nurses Sonia, Mopey, Paredema, Diane, Renee and Sarah.
Dr. Griffith and Dr. Harper; these two gentlemen spent so much time educating
us about the surgery with so much patience and compassion. They answered
countless questions for us. Post-operatively, Dr. Harper rounded on our
mom three times a day even each weekend day. Anyone can practice good
medicine but to exceed our expectations with their attentiveness and caring
amazed all of us.
Dr. Bains, Pulmonologist and Intensivist, was also amazing with his care
during her stay.
Having quality care so close to home is a rare treasure. You are so fortunate
to have such a great team of healthcare professionals.
As a side note, my sister, Romi Uppal, social work case manager, is a 15-year
employee of your wonderful facility. Our mom, Gurminderjeet Gill, was
also a Rideout employee for 11 years, many years ago.
Again, a heartfelt thank you to your stellar team of professionals.
