I was on a motorcycle vacation 1000 miles from home with my wife. I was taken by ambulance to St. Mary's with stomach pain. Arrived around 2:30 AM, Sunday 9/10. I cannot say enough good things about... more all aspects of my visit. I was examined immediately in the ER, taken for a cat scan and was being operated on shortly after my arrival. (perforated colon) While times were a bit hazy, My wife and I both agreed all ER staff did their very best, no, over and beyond to make us comfortable. After recovery I was an inpatient for 6 days. While I suspect nursing staff was over worked and under staffed, each one of them did their best to care for me. Never once did I feel over looked, just the opposite.
Once the staff heard my wife was from out of town with no transportation, no less than 3 different caregivers volunteered (after their 12 hr shift was over) to take her to the local Walmart (5 mi. away) to buy me stretch pants, drive her to the nearest restaurant (hospital cafeteria closed at 1pm on weekends), and even drive her back to hotel one night so she wouldn't have to walk in the rain. (no uber and taxi service iffy) The staff made appointment with our Dr. back home for followup and another made arrangements with ostomy (?) manufacturers (3) to send samples to arrive at our home by our arrival. We were sent home with enough supplies for our trip. Two days after we made it home, we received a phone call, just to check on me and make sure all was OK. While this was a most unexpected event, my wife and I both feel blessed that if this had to happen, we're glad I was taken to St. Mary's.
