The service here is mind blowing- I don’t want to oversell this because, what the hell, it’s just a hospital, but they really know how to take care of their patients here. Such amazing treatment and I’m not talking about medical treatments, I’m talking about a human treating another human with the minimalistic ounce of courtesy- something I lack to see in other hospitals.

I don’t have a ton of experience with hospitals, to begin with, but I know that the ER at Morton Plant was very efficient with me. Had come in the day before yesterday on account of my leg wound getting infected. I didn’t even realize it’d gotten infected until I saw some white liquid sort of thing coming out of the wound.

As alarming as that sounded, turns out I was at the hospital in the nick of time, so all was fine. The staff was very efficient, very fast with locating the issue, they had me tested and treated in no time. I was in an out in less than 3 hours. I’d been told by many of my friends that a visit to the ER is a minimum wait of 5-6 hours. So this made me happy.

I don’t appreciate getting a call from Morton Plant late at night telling me that they are shifting my aunt to another facility because her mental health care was deemed “nontreatable.” I’m sorry, what? You agree to treat my aunt in the first place and then bother me late at night, telling me there wasn’t anything you could do to help my aunt? How unprofessional is that? I get that a 66-year-old woman suffering from major depression can be a handful, but I don’t remember them telling me how difficult it would be when they saw my insurance policy. UGH.

My father has had some major respiratory issues over the years, so much so that when he was affected by pneumonia 2 years ago, we thought we would lose him. But he’s a tough cookie, he held it out and survived, so we are confident he will get through this hard time too. For 2 weeks now, my father has been in the ICU at Morton Plant and even though they said there was little hope of him recovering fully, we know he will make it through.
At first, the staff wanted to make sure we weren’t hoping for any miracles and they explained how we should keep low expectations. But coming from a family of faith, that didn’t bode well for us. We let them tell us whatever science-y things they had to say but knew that deep down our Savior would save my father.

But this review is to tell you about how efficient the medical staff at Morton Plant were. Even though I had a little scuffle with one of the nurses, everything since then was fairly smooth. One thing I never see anywhere is a doctor who doesn’t insult or debunk your beliefs, especially the Christian faith. Over the years we have had to suffer ridicule from many staff members of various hospitals, telling us that his healing had nothing to do with God. But at Morton Plant, the best thing was that there was no insult of faith. They let us be, but at the same time, explained everything that was going on. So should we feel the necessity to put him through any other medication, they would be okay with it.

My father was put on a ventilator just yesterday and it’s been scary. Everyone in my family has arrived to see him “one last time” but I know this won’t be the last. The nurses are particularly sweet and one of the Spanish nurses prays with me when she’s done with her shift for my father. It’s a really comforting place to be at when your family is going through a crisis like this. Never thought I’d find a hospital that supports our choices, but I’m glad my dad is at a place that doesn’t insult his faith or beliefs. Oh, and before I forget, the respiratory specialists at this hospital are out of this world. Terrific manners, very knowledgeable and decent doctors.

No one in the right state of mind would ever choose to go to this hospital. My poor father who was admitted here for a surgical procedure (and happens to sleep walk at night) walked all the way out of the hospital and no one seemed to notice (or care)?!! I was lucky I came in at the time and saw he was gone- my Lord, what could’ve happened. Never again.

Special hollers to my boys @Darien and @Michael, the two best nursing students I’ve ever seen. Such a keen passion to learn and obviously care about patients. Your ability to gel with patients so effortlessly is what makes you guys such magnetic personalities and patients’ favorites. Darien especially stayed in my room, past his shift, because I was scared for my surgical procedure the following day, saying he would protect me. It was literally the sweetest thing. Michael helped prep me for the surgery and was the kindest soul. He took pity on me, seeing as how scared I was to go into surgery and held my hand throughout. Made sure I felt just right and did everything in his power to make me feel safe. People like them are mocked (male nurses) but they are the reason American healthcare isn’t completely down the drain yet.

Can I get an amen for Morton Plant- complete saints that work here. My 4-year-old hates new people and I was scared to take him to the hospital when he was down with the flu and as a new step parent I was freaking out. But thankfully I didn’t have too much to do, except buy food, the amazing pediatrics unit at Morton took good care of my son. Clean, big hospital rooms, the cafeteria food is not bad, the doctors are beyond qualified.
