My husband was sent to San Ramon Regional last spring. The nurses who worked with him were not only highly competent and professional but very kind. He thrived while he was there. One of the nurses had an evaluation observation during this time. The negativity of the evaluator was obvious. He asked us many questions about her work, which he should have been able to see had he known what to look for. We should have not been involved in this at all.
When the doctor who was hired by our insurer prescribed a medication my husband was not supposed to have, it was the nursing staff who contacted him and worked with him to get the order changed.
These ladies and gentleman work so hard to care for their patients, they ARE the best side of San Ramon Regional. I hope the hospital realizes this and finds the funds to meet the nurses needs as well their patients' needs.

I've had a few surgeries at San Ramon Regional and felt I received terrific, professional treatment from caring nurses. I have a friend who is a nurse and I know their job is often very difficult. Regular breaks are essential for people who are taking care of patients. They have lots of responsibility and they deserve to feel appreciated by their employers. I hope Tenet will realize how hard these caregivers work, and how moral and can be eroded when their efforts are not respected by providing adequate rest periods throughout their shifts. Poor moral results in a poor attitude towards their job, which leads to poor patient care.
