I can’t thank the brave Pediatric ER team at Summerlin Hospital enough for taking SUCH good care of my baby girl who had to be rushed in due to an extreme anaphylactic reaction. We were in Summerlin for a short period of time for a friend’s wedding when this happened. She is allergic to shell fish and I’m not sure how, but it got into her system and she is deadly allergic to it. Thankfully, Summerlin wasn’t too far from the reception, and I remember screaming through the halls of the Summerlin ER, hoping nothing would happen to my poor baby girl. Our family doctor was back in Henderson and I called him up immediately, hoping he would have some words to calm me down. But he was unavailable on phone and I felt myself feeling dizzy.

This was when I felt Dr. H’s hand on my shoulder and he asked me if I was okay. I’ve watched a lot of TV shows and movies, and I know for a fact that no doctor does this. So I told him what I was feeling and how I was scared for my little Hope. He had come to tell me that she was looking better and that they would shift her to another room shortly. My hope recovered with no problems. She also had an amazing time in this hospital. They treat children so well here, constantly bringing them food, juice, and toys, even. There’s something comforting in knowing that children are taken care of so well here.

Had the best experience at the Labor and Delivery unit- this was my second delivery and it was so much easier than the last one in Boston. More than the delivery, I was happy with the postpartum counseling I got and all the extra help put in by the amazing nurses- they really do care for you. Keep up the good work, ladies.

I owe my life (literally) to the AMAZING cardiology unit’s efficient team that took on my case with zero hesitation. I will admit, the reason for my condition is no one else but my bad eating habits and while I felt they were going slightly downhill, I never would’ve imagined it to have escalated to the point of no return. A few weeks ago, I was sitting down after dinner when I felt a shortness of breath. After sometime I felt a tightness in my chest. Ignored that as well. I then grabbed the phone and dialed 911 when I felt a slight pull in my left arm, running all the way to my shoulders.

When we got to the ER, they took Xrays, EKGs and other tests that were needed. I was still, surprisingly, not scared. They asked me stay under observation for that night at the hospital and I obliged. Never really had an issue with hospitals, as long as they give me food. Anyway, I slept for a few hours before I was woken up by the staff. Then a heart surgeon walked in and explained my situation. Apparently, I’d let myself go a little too much of late, as there was severe blockage, up to 97%. Not entirely sure about what that meant, I felt the first rush of panic hit me when the surgeon said I’d need a triple heart bypass, and within the next 2 days.

The surgeon was Dr. Erhman and he did everything within his control to make sure I would feel comfortable, even though, by then I’d clearly started hyperventilating. Even so, he didn’t tell me that I was to blame or anything, he kept his cool and said that everything would go smoothly. Talk about a person who is super cool under pressure. And that’s exactly how it went. The procedure was very efficient, I didn’t even realize it was such a big procedure until later on when I talked to some other medical professionals about it.

All I did, though, was sleep and wake up to the news that the surgery went great. The entire time before the surgery, I was kept happy and cheerful! Great place. Nurse Kelly was honestly the kindest one there and I will remember her for life- the way she held my hand and told me I was going to be okay. The little things keep you going. This hospital is highly recommended.

Summerlin has been my favorite hospital for over 10 years now since I’ve been coming with my mom here for years. A lot of people complain about how inefficient the ER is, but honestly people, they can’t just jump on every case where the patient says it’s “urgent”. That’s the case for 99% of the patients at the ER after (Duh?) Besides, the wait at this ER is a lot less than most hospitals, so don’t complain.

What I didn’t like about this hospital is that it’s all false promises. I thought it’d end up being a great medical experience but ended in absolute disaster. They do a lot of promoting for this hospital, especially by the chief of medicine. He acts all cordial with you, just to lure you in. But once in, you are doomed. I had to get admitted as an inpatient for a few days and was debating whether or not to go to Mountain View, since I’d been there in the past.

But the way the chief of medicine made it sound like my surgery would be a lot more comfortable here, I fell for those words. It’s partly my mistake, I should’ve done my research. Turns out the anesthesiologist is such a fail. She messed up my case so bad, I ended up having a reaction after my surgery which now needs to be treated again. So that’s more than 2-3 weeks in a hospital. It can’t be a coincidence that they are so clumsy- this had to be premeditated.
