I worked at Renown as a nurse for 18 years but had to move out of state due to personal circumstances. I also gave birth to two babies there, and had numerous ER visits. As an insider, world traveler, and a consumer, I want the World to know that Renown has some of the best skilled nurses, doctors and ancillary staff in the industry, supported by top technology. I’ve witnessed, on several occasions, lame doctors and nurses being let go. This is the hospital that has zero tolerance for staff incompetence, so if you want to stay alive and do well after your episode, you go to Renown, listen carefully to their instructions, and take care of yourself. I can only dream of getting this level of competent care anywhere else, and would love to bring these experts along.
And just for the record, if you are a diabetic and smoke, don’t follow the diet and insulin regimen, and eat junk, your toe will fall off regardless if you are at Renown, Kaiser, or John Hopkins. It’s time to start taking responsibility for yourself!
