About a week before Christmas 2012, I was feeling very ill. My primary care doctor took one look at my abdomen and sent me to Banner Desert Medical Center to be treated.
I was admitted through the ER and every single person who saw me, provided care, tried to put in an IV - each one was caring, supportive and genuine. I was admitted to 4C and again received top-notch care.
As an RN, seeking my PhD in Nursing and a university instructor in the RN program, I know quality care when I see it. The nurses and care techs quickly responded to my needs and treated me with kindness. I had a great deal of difficulty sleeping and on my third or fourth night my gracious and caring nurse allowed me to sleep and took my vitals later than what was normal.
Each nurse I interacted with was professional, caring and exhibited the highest standards of the profession.
I was discharged on the evening of December 23, just in time to celebrate Christmas at home. I will remain grateful to each and every member of the Banner Desert Team. I had a choice as to which hospital to go to for care - choosing Banner Desert was one of the easiest, and best, choices I've made.
