My Meriter Story

ER Staff Was Impressive

I just wanted to share how wonderful all the staff at Meriter was during my few visits to the hospital this past week.

I went to the ER with abdominal pain. The Doctor and nurses (Amber) were kind and diligent to find out what was wrong with me. I found out that day I was pregnant. They contacted my OB-GYN at Associated Physicians and made a plan with them for my next step.

A few days later, I found out the pregnancy was ectopic. Although we tried to treat the pregnancy medically, I ended up in the ER.

The ER staff was so impressive. From the kind woman who checked me in, to the triage nurse. I felt their sympathy to my situation. My ER nurse on Monday, Terry, was amazing. Even though I had to wait a while that evening for a shot, she made sure I was fed and informed about my situation. Although I was able to leave on Monday, Terry and Dr. Silver made sure I knew to come back for any reason, for any pain.

It was with that knowledge that I returned on Wednesday, which ended up being a very smart decision. Again, I was treated with kindness and sympathy from the nurses, such as Erin, who was fantastic. The staff and doctors worked directly with my doctor at Associated Physicians. It was decided that I should have surgery that day. It was the best decision that could have been made. All the staff made sure my husband was well cared for. The doctors were amazing during the surgery, anesthesia and in recovery. And while I was in recovery, I was never rushed to leave. I stayed overnight. My nurses, Cindy, Kim, Emily, Michelle, Steve and Sandy were top notch. And I left knowing I was in the best hands. I wish I could remember everyone's name that worked with me...the ultrasound tech, Juanita, Sue, who took me to surgery, Cathy, who prepped me for surgery, and the doctor that assisted in my surgery that day. Everyone was so professional and so kind.

My situation was horrible, but the care I received at Meriter made everything easier. From check-ins, to departure, each staff member treated me with respect and comfort. I am so thankful for the excellent care I received at Meriter and am glad to know that this is my hospital. Thank you all!
