Testimonials | Good Samaritan


I Am Good Samaritan - Steve Clohecy, SECURITY
Our special needs son was recently admitted through the Emergency Room, which was quite agitating for him. He is only 8 years old and having his routine interrupted by a hospital visit was challenging for us all. We need to thank Steve from security who went out of his way to make our son feel comfortable. He talked with him, played catch with him, and brought him popsicles throughout his stay. This gave our son something to look forward to that wasn’t a test or medical – it was a friendly face with a sweet treat. It meant the world to him, and to us.” Steve-GSMC20150908-0878.jpg    

I Am Good Samaritan - Laura Sweeney, RN, NURSING 3A
“Spending a week confined to a hospital bed is seldom a happy occasion, but my treatment was satisfying thanks to those who cared for me. One nurse was outstanding. Laura attended cheerfully, professionally, and punctually to my needs, procedures, and medications. Her presence assured me that my illness was up against a formidable adversary! It seemed as though I had a private nurse, concerned only with getting me well.”

I Am Good Samaritan - Eric Joubert, RN, CARDIAC CATH LAB
“My husband was a patient at Good Samaritan Medical Center where he received excellent treatment. We can’t say enough about the care he received from the Cardiac Cath team, including Eric, who were outstanding. Talk about patient satisfaction! Thank you, for employing such wonderful people.”

I Am Good Samaritan - Felix Fleurimond, INTERPRETER SERVICES
“I was recently traveling out of state when my mother was admitted to the hospital – she was very scared because her English is not very strong. Felix took such great care of my mom by making sure her meals were ordered properly and he visited her every morning just to check in on her. It made us feel great knowing that he was there when we could not be.”

I Am Good Samaritan - Melissa Macdonald-Kerr, LABORATORY–PHLEBOTOMY
“My mother was treated at Good Samaritan Medical Center for pneumonia and I wanted to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of the staff. Melissa showed skill in her craft when she recognized the pink bracelet indicating which arm could not be used to collect blood, then she painlessly drew the sample. I have high accolades for the ancillary staff that facilitated the recovery of my mother.”

I Am Good Samaritan - Clayton Wood, MD, EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT
“Sadly, my family and I had to say goodbye to our mother. Though we are saddened, we need to recognize the exemplary care we received from the ER staff, including Dr. Wood, who honored our wishes for Mom, and saw it through with compassion. This is my opportunity to tell you there is greatness in your staff.”

A Good Samaritan Patient
I attended your meeting yesterday at Good Samaritan Medical Center for upcoming surgeries! I just wanted to let you know that all of you did an amazing job! Everyone was wonderful, well educated in their fields, confident, and on and on! I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about my hip replacement surgery, but yesterday helped me so very much! I know the staff will be there for me and Dr. McNeil will do a great job! Again, just wanted to send thanks to you and all who participated! Keep up the good work – definitely a great idea! Many thanks.
