Wendy did an excellent job of communicating with us regarding the progression of labor and what to expect.
We were recently cared for at Memorial Medical Center for the birth of my daughter. I would like to commend the nursing staff on the labor and delivery floor at MMC for their excellent work. While we were impressed with all the employees, there are a few who deserve special recognition.
Wendy worked the day shift on the day I was admitted. I had been in labor for more than 24 hours at home prior to coming to the hospital, and was experiencing a lot of pain. She made it her top priority to contact the doctor so I could have an epidural as soon as possible. Throughout the rest of the day, Wendy did an excellent job of communicating with us regarding the progression of labor and what to expect.
Adriane and Carrie were the two nurses who cared for us later that evening during labor. They were both excellent motivators during the pushing process and were very empathetic when I finally required a Caesarean section. Carrie also took care of my daughter and I in the postpartum unit. Due to my daughter losing weight, it was recommended that I supplement breastfeeding with formula. Carrie was so helpful during this process, and advocated for us so we were able to use the SNS system as an alternative to bottle feeding. Carrie is currently in her orientation period, and I think she will become one of your best nurses.
Emily, Becky, Kellie, Kendra and Jen were all nurses who cared for us during the postpartum stay. Every one of them was kind and caring. They all helped us with the breastfeeding process and were great educators on how to care for our daughter after we were discharged. Marlene, the lactation consultant, was also very helpful with breastfeeding. The CNAs on the 7th floor also deserve to be recognized for their hard work. Each one was pleasant, professional and helpful. They never left the room without asking if there was anything else we needed.
Thank you for providing great patient care!
