I am pleased to share this note I received from a former patient.
I just wanted to take a moment to send this note of sincere gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful care I received on June 13 in your emergency department.
I was on my vacation, camping with my grandchildren, and I reached in the backseat to take the 3 year old out of his car seat and I twisted my back and felt a horrible pain. I waited a day and half before I sought out professional help, and by then I was in so much pain, I just could not stand it.
Your staff was exemplary and after an exam, I was given some pain medication to relieve my pain. Needless to say, my vacation was ruined, but my pain was relieved and I was able to make the five hour car trip back to Chico.
I am an RN and I work for the State of California as a surveyor nurse. We survey hospitals, nursing homes and others for compliance with state and federal regulations. I have surveyed many, many hospitals in my 23 year career and I must say, that I was really impressed with the care, service, cleanliness, friendliness of staff and promptness to my problem.
So, a big THANK YOU to your ER staff. Your dedication to your work is totally impressive. Ft. Bragg is truly fortunate to have such a fine community hospital.
