A happy camper sews thanks for CCH ER

To the ER professionals who aided me in (the) wee hours of April 27, 2020 – THANK YOU to those who were covering room 46. Antibiotic seemed to do the trick. And I’m back to walking (as exercise.) I’m a happy camper.

CCH staff held in the highest regard…from the bottom of this patient’s heart

We are most definitely “washashores,” moving permanently to Cape Cod from Connecticut in 2017. We’ve had a small laundry list of relatively nonserious reasons to visit Cape Cod Hospital over the years, all of which left us holding the hospital and its staff in high regard.

Most recently a kidney stone complication resulted in an emergency procedure and a two-night hospital stay.

The list of competent, empathetic, friendly doctors, nurses, nurse’s aides, orderlies and food service personnel that took care of me is too long to recognize individually, but one person with one act personifies the treatment I received.

In the very early morning after the late-night emergency procedure, I had a complication that left me in an extraordinary amount of pain, and while my nurse was making her best effort to get a hold of a doctor, a nurse’s aide stayed and did her best to comfort me, stood vigil in the hall watching for my nurse or a doctor and offered to pray with me, an offer that I blinked back tears of pain to take advantage of.

Thank you, Cape Cod Hospital, from the absolute bottom of my heart.

Beyond the call of duty: praise for a special nurse and VNA Cape Cod Hospice

My wife, Ruth Anne, now deceased, was a patient in your hospice program, and I just wanted to thank your organization for the care and attention you provided. The kindness and consideration you provided, which we were given, couldn’t have been better.

I particularly want to express my appreciation for the care provided by Dianne Munsell. Her skills, attention to detail and loving demeanor went way beyond the call of duty. She did a fabulous job.

I couldn’t feel better about the services you have provided during this difficult time.

– Yours very truly, E.T. Catlett

From treatment to dining, an excellent experience at Falmouth Hospital

Was in the ER 2/25/20 Rm. 7 for severe breathing issues. The entire staff from nursing phlebotomy and the doctor were great they handled every need. …Very friendly, always showing a positive attitude even with my… veins that have a hard time with drawing blood. The doctor was extremely helpful, answering all questions with confidence, did not rush and made sure we were completely satisfied with treatment. After leaving the ER, my wife and I had a great lunch in the cafeteria. The food was excellent, prices were fair and we got 5-star treatment from the grill cook and other staff in the kitchen as I have a hard time getting around. So overall experience was great, thank you.

Top notch staff and care at Falmouth Hospital ER

Despite them being busy, I was promptly seen. Cleanest ER I’ve been in so far and their staff is top notch! I really can’t even put into words how much everyone here really helped me today. You actually gave me a proper diagnosis with proper medication so I can actually get better, thank you!

“In good hands”…Kudos for Cuda Women’s Health Center and Wilkens Outpatient Medical Complex

I love coming here. Staff is nice, professional and you’re in and out. I go here for my blood work, mammograms, etc. It's a very accommodating, friendly place. I had my mammogram here and have to come back every six months for them to watch my right breast – scary but the staff here explains everything to you and makes you feel that you are in good hands. Every time I go back I am not nervous and know I am getting the best care.
