I would like to thank the ICU Nurses, Dr. Bean, Chaplain and Baptist Lexington for the care you gave my nephew (BJ Burns) on 2nd Floor ICU North Tower. The family decided to take him off the Vent on Tuesday... more evening and he passed shortly after. The nurses were ROCK STARS...so caring and compassionate right up till his last breath. They even brushed his teeth and did everything to keep him as comfortable as they could. And it didn't stop there. We had a large family group and we were treated so good and everything was explained about what could/would happen when the Vent was removed and then they did everything to make him comfortable and treated him and our family with dignity and care. Thank you...you made a very difficult situation better with your care and compassion.
My husband recently was in ICU North Tower for just shy of 3 weeks. The care he received from the entire staff was phenomenal. Dr. Ben Newman saved his life and we will forever be grateful to this amazing... more Neurosurgeon. He continually stayed informed of his condition and acted upon any change in his condition no matter how minor. All of his ICU nurses; Jessica, Alyssa, Amanda, Brooke, Kayla, Haidar, Erin, Tyler, Carrie, Shara, Sadie, Leslie, and the Nurse Aides went above and beyond to ensure that that his care was never compromised. The bond between these nurses and my husband was genuine, many even visited on their days off to check on him. Hopefully the need for care at Baptist Health will not be a concern in the future, however if it arises we would never hesitate to seek care at this hospital.
