Praise for Huntington Hospital ER Staff

'I'll never forget the kind faces of all the people who cared'

Kathy Kuthy submitted this letter last week.

I am writing as a way to publicly thank and acknowledge the Emergency Room Staff at Huntington Hospital, especially those on duty the night of Monday Jan. 28, 2013.

Having only experienced an ER during those rare times in life when one faces a trauma or life threatening illness, I only hesitantly went to the ER with severe flu related fever.  Not only am I lucky to have made that decision but our entire community is lucky to have such dedicated, hardworking people staffing our ER round the clock.

I entered Huntington Hospital ER in tears, delirious with fever, unable to put together my thoughts and scared that I was going to actually become a flu statistic and die.  I got plenty of saline IVs, ice chips, Tamiflu but mostly, I got tons of TLC.  I never imagined that any hospital ER staff was so nice and gentle.  They treated me as if I was their own child, mother or friend.

By Tuesday morning, after a long hard night of fever, they had me under control and could release me to convalesce at home.  No tears, I had a huge smile on my face.  Names slipped away with my fever, but I'll never forget the kind faces of all the people who cared me back to health.  Thank you.

We are very fortunate to have such a facility in our community. Huntington Hospital has always been great to my family as well.

I received the same TLC when I was rushed there last year for an emergency appendectomy. Best care I ever got and they saved my life! If I had waited even a little bit longer to get to the hospital, there would have been nothing they could have done. Everyone was so caring and attentive. I am very thankful for the staff at Huntington Hospital.

A few days after Superstorm Sandy, stress got the better of me and my heart began to pound and race. I drove myself to the emergency room at Huntington Hospital, thinking I was possibly having a heart attack. All I said to them was "My heart is racing". In minutes I was evaluated, blood tests, EKG, fluids, etc. I have never seen such precision and care in an emergency room. The emergency room was full to the brim of people needing care and yet everyone was being tended to quickly, efficiently and with tender care. Kudos to the Huntington Hospital!!! Thank you.
