Our ER Ranked top 5% in the Nation by HealthGrades

4/12/2011

I’m not surprised – my husband recently came into the ER by paramedics after I called 911. When I’d gotten home from work that day I found him weak and unable to talk. It was a Monday in the late afternoon, you wouldn’t think that it would be a busy time in the ER, but it was packed!

The smiling face of a Case Coordinator came and asked how I was doing and lent me a shoulder to express my worries. Back to the ER team! The doctor was extremely thorough, and after my husband was screened for a stroke they determined he was a “gold” alert. They explained that that alert was for sepsis (a bad infection).
