What patients and families are saying about us

I would like to pay special attention to the MSICU nurses who I spent the most time with. I can’t say enough about the nursing staff in ICU. They always took the time to explain what was happening and why. The things that stand out however is their compassion and sincere and genuine interest in my progress and recovery. I have no doubt their care has contributed to my recovery and discharge from this outstanding hospital.

Patient: Tower 7 MSICU, East 5 Rehab

Our loved one was airflighted to UC Davis Medical Center. He spent 30 days in MSICU Tower 7. The care that he received was phenomenal!!! The nursing staff provided not only wonderful care to him but also to us as family members. Each and every nurse whether assigned to us or not showed us compassion, understanding and patience. This has been one of the most difficult, trying experiences of our 27 years together, yet having the nurses and all the staff caring for him and, of course, the outcome has made this experience bearable. We have some follow-up medical issues, these could done in our hometown, but we have chosen to return to UC Davis Medical Center. We can never thank everyone involved enough for the care and compassion shown to our entire family.

Our son was so sick when he came to the Emergency Room, they put us in a room and cared for him right away. The nurses on Davis 7 have been fantastic, they cared for our son as if he was their own child. Thank you to all the nurses, we are very happy.

I had C3-C7 laminectomy and I am a quadriplegic. The nurses on Davis 14 made me feel more comfortable in getting through a difficult recovery period. Nurses Chris, Angela and Olga were especially helpful. They helped by not always waiting for me to push the call light. They always came in to check on me. Chris helped make recommendations with medicines to help control my pain. The nurses offered a lot of good conversation while feeding me.

Jerome has helped me navigate hospital life. He’s done a lot to help me become more independent, extending and reinforcing what I’ve learned from the therapists. He is very service oriented, has appreciated my family role and contributions and genuinely cares about about my comfort and recovery.
