Patients, Employees and Visitors tell their experiences…
Tricia H., RN
“At Longmont United Hospital, I really feel valued as a nurse. We are able to be the manager of our patient’s care and really be able to make each patients care unique and different. We are able to work with each patient in creating the labor and delivery experience that they wished to have.” April 2011
Irma M., Patient -BirthPlace
“I had a great experience at Longmont United Hospital. From the day I was admitted to the day I discharged. The rooms are very welcoming, and the nurses were great.” April 2011
Brad and Christine, New Parents – BirthPlace
“All the nurses were wonderful. They were all great and helped me feel at ease as a first time mom.”
“I didn’t want to leave when it was time to go home. It was so comfortable here and there was always a person to help us and answer questions. We had really good care.”
Cindy R., RN
“Our goal here at Longmont United Hospital is to make sure that we are working well as a team so we can deliver the quality care that we want for the patients. We want them to feel a part of what is going on with their loved ones. Part of our job is to help explain what we can do in the moment to relieve the pain or what procedure they are going for to make sure that they completely understand that procedure.
What makes us different here at Longmont United Hospital is the team.” December 2009
Patty S., Patient - Heart
“It’s a beautiful hospital. If I had to go anywhere, I would go here. They are kind and gentle and they know what they are doing. They make you feel very special. It’s just a great hospital.
This was the best experience I’ve ever had.” December 2009
Mary T., Patient – Hip Replacement
“I had a full hip replacement. I made an exceptional recovery. I just thought that everyone was very professional. The thing that I like about Longmont United Hospital is the atmosphere, the friendliness, the attentiveness that everybody gives their patients. It makes it comfortable for everyone.” April 2010
Laura S., RN
Physical Therapy Patients
“There is longevity with the staff which allows us to really train nurses to know the equipment and be on the cutting edge. They know and help each other meet the needs of the patient. I think that is what Longmont does really well. If you have a team that works well together, they are going to come together in a crisis. And they are going to come together to prevent a crisis. There are just some team dynamics that can end up saving lives.
At Longmont United Hospital, we care about you when your here and when you are at home. We are unique in that we are a Planetree organization- patient-centered care through the patient’s eyes.” December 2009
“I worked with Ember - she did a great job explaining things and helping me walk again after knee surgery. The clinic is clean and a pleasant environment.” March 2010
“I was always satisfied with my physical therapy and feel Ember did everything I needed to rehab my knee and meet all my goals.” March 2010
Dean S., Cardiac Catheterization Lab
Pulmonary Rehabilitation Patient
“With our procedures and the data we gather, we’re 99 percent sure of what’s happening to that patient’s heart. It is amazing to see someone come in really sick, in really critical condition, and within an hour to hour and a half, we have turned them around.
If you come to Longmont United Hospital, you’ll get the best treatment that is out there.” December 2009
“I arrived to visit a respiratory therapy clinical student and found myself very impressed by your staff. From the information desk staff to the respiratory therapists and Jennifer, everyone has been extremely professional and kind. THANKS!” March 2010
Mike, Director, Catheterization Lab
“We perform cardiac catherizations, balloons or stents. We have state of the art equipment to give us finest detail and imaging. A coronary artery is only a couple of millimeters diameter. We have made a strong effort at this hospital to provide the cardiologists the tools necessary to get the most accurate data possible in the least amount of time.
There are two things that the patient benefits from. Number one is that we make sure that the patient’s family members are aware and have a complete understanding of what’s going to happen to the patient before we even bring them in the lab. We review the procedure and the steps of the procedure that the patient will be experiencing. Secondly, I believe that just having a team that is congenial in the way it operates makes it look seamless to the patient.
We go through extensive steps in making sure we provide patient and family with the necessary information not only prep-procedure but post-procedure. Our care does not stop once you leave our facility. It’s ongoing.” January 2010
