Top Notch Facility!
My wife and I were in town for a wedding this past weekend and at the time she was 36 weeks pregnant. We had an OB appointment prior to leaving and everything was A-OK so we decided to make the 6.5 hour trek from west central ND. Our son decided to change our plans and come early. I work in nursing and have been a RN for 5 years and just recently passed my NP boards, so I am well accustomed to the varying personalities of healthcare workers and differing agencies. The Brookings Health System is honestly one of, if not, thee best facility I have ever been in contact with. Their genuine compassion and care can be seen throughout all facets of the hospital from nursing to housekeeping to the providers. I was exceptionally impressed with the nursing staff as they were kind, caring, educated, and most importantly supportive. Even though our birth did not go as expected we would not change a thing and we have the Brookings Health System to thank for this, so much so that we named our son Brookston! I can unequivocally say that other healthcare facilities can learn a thing or two from this facility especially their OB department!
