In March of 2004, I was having symptoms of a stroke and . . . asked my parents to take me to Good Sam. (Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center) I thought if I am having a stroke, I should be at a stroke center.
When I arrived at Good Sam after relating my symptoms, I was immediately sent back for tests which showed I was having a stroke. I was stabilized and the cause of the stroke was found, a hole in my heart.
One month later, I had another stroke and was rushed to Good Sam, where the next day the hole was closed. I have had two other minor cardiac events since but am doing fine now.
I just want to say that on each visit I was treated with the utmost respect and professionalism that I recommend Good Sam to everyone.
And now to the reason I am writing this letter. I think I was spoiled when I was at Good Sam. I was treated so well with nurses coming in quite often just to ask if there was anything I needed. If I needed help bathing, going to the restroom, please hit the call button. Patients will not truly appreciate how they are treated at Good Sam or any Banner hospital for that matter until they stay in another hospital.
Thanks to all of the staff at Good Sam who treats every patient all the time with great respect, dignity and compassion as not all medical facilities do.
