Your loved one has to have surgery at your hospital. Let's say it's something fairly common--a cholecystectomy, a hip replacement, an appy.

How would you respond?

Nothing personal, because I think the facility I work at is the best, but I'm camping out at his bedside.

How would you respond?

Not really understanding here. Are you meaning the surgical dept itself, or the hospital as a whole?

I mean the whole hospital stay, from admission to discharge, with a surgery in between.

The hospital where my husband (*cough cough COUGH*, that WORD:eek: ) works, from start to finish, yes. Where i work, pre-op, yes, peri-op, yes, PACU yes, but the floors, no. There are some great nurses mixed with some less than desireable ones.

Yes, but I would remain at the bedside whenever possible. Cause I know how busy it gets and I want to be sure my loved one is comfortable and safe. But yes, I would be ok with them getting care where I work. I know and respect most of the staff.
