I had surgery at Centennial on July 5 for a facial nerve issue. The surgery went smoothly and the doctors and nurses were incredible. They made sure my husband was informed of my progress and health throughout the surgery, calling him multiple times throughout the procedure.
For the most part, my aftercare was incredible. The initial ICU nurse was terrible! I was left in an extremely uncomfortable position for several hours after the surgery (I was still under the effects of the anesthesia and couldn't move on my own for several hours). By the time I was able to move, I had sustained serious damage to the muscles in my neck. Paula, the ICU nurse the following day, was kind and caring. She made sure I had whatever I needed as soon as I needed it. Once I was moved to a regular room (very large and comfortable -- much more than expected), my nurse Amanda and tech Liza were also so caring and compassionate. They helped me physically, but also took a genuine interest in me personally. They helped me understand what I could do, should do, and should watch out for. Often they were checking on me and taking care of my needs before I could even ask...they were just "there" for me! The other nurses and techs during this part of my care were also very caring and genuinely concerned; however, Amanda and Liza were my primary aid during the day and most noticeable. They absolutely shined as care providers!!!
The hospital was clean without that "disinfectant" smell you notice in many hospitals. The overall care was impressive with the staff genuinely caring about my entire welfare -- personal as well as physical. The food was...okay. Better than most hospital food I've had but still "hospital" food. However, it was well prepared and I had excellent options and more food than I needed (I selected fewer options to avoid unnecessary waste). Other than the 1 nurse after my surgery, this place was exceptional!!! I highly recommend them.
