Bobette shares why the dedicated orthopedic medical unit at McKee Medical Center was important to her when she chose to have hip replacement surgery. She also recalls the follow-up care after her surgical procedure.
Well, it was important because they knew exactly what they were doing and they had experience with all kinds of orthopedic patients so therefore, when I would complain or when I would ask for something they didn’t seem surprised or confused by what I was asking. They seemed to understand perfectly what my needs were and they were competent again – competent, kind and caring and sensitive to orthopedic needs.
After I returned home they called to make sure and ask about my stay at the hospital and to ask how I was doing and there was such sincerity in the way that they asked that it was very touching and then about a week later I got a card in the mail and it was signed by all the nurses that I had had during my stay at McKee Medical Center and I thought, you know, that’s above and beyond what you expect from a hospital and that was very touching and very thoughtful.
Hi, I am Bobette and I came to McKee Medical Center to have my hip replaced. After returning home, Banner Health helped with my rehab and that was six months ago and now I am able to do things that I haven’t been able to do for a long time.
