On 10/22/13 I was admitted to Samaritan Medical Center by Dr. Edwardo Barayuga through the emergency room for treatment of an inflamed gall bladder. I was released from the hospital on 10/26/13, and wanted to provide the following testimony on the care I received while hospitalized. From the moment I arrived in the ER around 1245 hours, I was courteously and quickly seen and processed by the administrative staff. ER nurse Connie was SUPER, as were the other members of the nursing, laboratory, and support teams. By around 1530 hours I was admitted and arrived on 4 pavilion room 4215. From that point forward the care I received from the nursing, housekeeping, and laboratory staff was SUPERIOR in all respects. They all had a smile on their faces and went out of their way each and every day to see to my well-being and comfort. I want to recognize in particular the following members of the nursing team for their efforts; 

  • Nurse Jennifer and Nurse Assistant Candice 10/22 
  • Nurse Judy and Nurse Assistant Tanya 10/22 
  • Nurse Rebeka and Student Nurse Nikki 10/23 Nurse Chastity and Nurse Assistant Bob 10/23-110/24 
  • Nurse Jasmin and Nurse Assistant Sally 10/25 
  • Housekeeping lady who I nicknamed the Swifter Lady 
  • Early morning Laboratory lady from Belleville NY 
  • Member of the admitting staff who came to my room on 10/22 with the “10,000 question form.” 

Any additional members I may have left off this list, Thank you all for making an uncomfortable and painful experience less so in all regards. I respect and salute your professionalism and dedication and have no qualms in recommending Samaritan Medical Center as a center of excellence in patient care.
