feedback about Upmc Altoona
My son was recently flown to UPMC Altoona after wrecking his car. He had head injuries, a broken arm and facial cuts, bruises and bumps. The care my son received in the trauma unit and critical care was extraordinary. The nurses were phenomenal!
My husband is a truck driver and needed emergency care while on the road and was brought here which is 2.5 hours from our home. I read through the reviews and went there loaded for bear to guarantee he was taken care of properly. From the moment my son and I walked in we were treated with nothing but kindness and had all our fears put to rest. Everyone was very professional and friendly and my husband received topnotch quality care.
Maternity ward is a joke! Especially if you are a new mom, been discharged and have a sick baby. No where for the new mom to sleep, prop her feet up, eat, go to the restroom etc. This is definitely not the environment a post natal mother should be especially if she's trying to breast feed.
My mom has kept UPMC Altoona quite busy as of late. One such visit took place just over two weeks ago. When I entered the ER, I quickly noticed a young child who was experiencing a significant amount of discomfort while in the waiting area. An employee, Loren Bowman, was working his magic with the child. Loren quickly captivated the boy's attention, and, at the same time, shared with the child's dad the steps that would be taken, AND expedited the process with the nurses and ER attendants. The child quickly calmed while Loren continued his balancing act with the father and with Loren's co-workers. Once the child's needs had been addressed and was passed on to a doctor, Loren quickly tackled my mother's case. It was done genuinely and with full attention. It's difficult for me to believe that this is a one-time thing for Loren. He detailed the steps that would be taken to assist my mom. Since I am from out of state and quite unfamiliar with the layout of the hospital, he walked me to the room where my mom would be staying. Along the walk, he greeted the majority, if not all, of the employees by name and checked in with them on items specific to the individual. The same attention that he paid to the little boy was given to my mom and to his co-workers. My hope is that I will not have to pay another visit to this hospital. If I do, I can trust the process that Loren demonstrated.
