This letter is to thank and commend the staff at Alta Vista Regional Hospital for their excellent care and customer service during my husband’s recent stay due to pneumonia.
We live in Ocate, and as I drove him toward Las Vegas at 4 a.m. on a Saturday, I felt he would not make it to the Santa Fe ER, so I drove to the Alta Vista ER. I was not sure what type of care we would receive at Alta Vista, as they have not always received the best reviews from friends and even the press. However, I would like to state that from the time we arrived to the day he was discharged, my husband received excellent and efficient care for his condition. He was treated with compassion and respect throughout his stay, and he was greeted with smiles and concern regarding his welfare. From the young lady who took our information at the ER, to the doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, custodial staff, respiratory specialists, pharmacist, and all other hospital personnel that helped my husband during his stay, each person seemed to go out of his or her way to help him or ask if help was needed.
Again, we would like to thank everyone who assisted my husband during his recent visit at Alta Vista Regional Hospital — you made it as pleasant as it could be. Also, congratulations to the hospital administration and board for helping to create an atmosphere wherein an excellent staff is flourishing.
