Dear Editor: I am writing this letter in sheer praise of everyone within the hospital who was instrumental in the care of my wife (Brenda Minkoff).
I brought my wife to the hospital emergency room on March 16, at approximately 4 p.m. She had been complaining of severe abdominal pain, lack of eating, nausea, no energy etc. For the past two weeks, we under the care of her primary physician running test after test to no avail — not for his lack of trying. No positive diagnosis had been determined. The pain got so severe that I made an executive decision and brought her to the ER.
Starting with the time spent in the ER, our experience had been nothing but extremely pleasant, caring, efficient and totally professional for the caring for my wife’s and my own concerns.
Numerous tests were performed within the ER, and after these tests were performed, the decision from the hospital was to have her admitted. She was admitted and in a room by 1 a.m., March 17. We took her home on March 28.
I just want to commend, as highly as possible, each and every member of the hospital for the outstanding care my wife received while in the hospital.
I do not recall all the names of the wonderful staff members who were instrumental in her care, but I would greatly appreciate telling them how fantastic her stay was made even after her diagnosis of Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Even on my wife’s birthday, March 25, while she was in the hospital, the staff took the time to have a birthday card signed and given to her.
In closing I would like to say thank you to RMC for the wonderful hospital and staff that made my wife’s stay as pleasant and comfortable as humanly possible.
We now have her home with a totally positive attitude that we are going to beat this and she will have many more years to look forward to.
