On 07/25 I received a hysterectomy at this hospital. I was VERY hesitant because of all the bad reviews, but really enjoyed my OBGYN and this is the hospital she operated out of so decided to trust in her. I am glad I did.
From the pre-op area to the time I went home (today, 07/28) every nurse I encountered was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I recovered on the 8th floor, room 8207, and the nurses who helped me were Winnie, Alma, Nelly, Jeanette, Kirsten and Kyle. All were extremely patient and caring with me. When I couldn’t get a hold of my doctor, Jeanette did everything she could to make sure she did. I was told to walk a lot, and when I would, Winnie or Alma, who were working on other sides of the floor and not my nurses that day, would give me words of encouragement every time they saw me. I consider myself very lucky to have had these nurses during a very painful, anxious and scary time.
Thank you St Francis nurses for all of your time, help and patience.
