Today, I was greeted and tended to by the most compassionate and patient people. These people, my people, were sensitive to the stressful nature of my injuries and concerns. The women and men that I interacted with were phenomenal and knowledgeable. Decades ago, Pasadena closed the other hospital in the city. Leaving all of their citizens with only one accessible hospital and limited transport to them. Today, I witnessed people getting in and out of the hospital in record time and the waiting room was packed. The other remarkable component was that the staff, the doctors, the orderlies, even the housekeepers/ hospital keepers were actually working. AND I DO NOT MEAN FINDING THINGS TO DO!!!! These folks were real people with real responsibilities and they were executing them without complaint. Although I do not step foot in many hospitals, I do step foot into many resorts. This hospital was resort like.... but a resort that includes everyone. People always joke about the crazy people in hospitals. There may have been one or two but the staff was thorough and insightful in getting them to the right wards. And might I add, today is LABOR DAY!!!!!! Thank you to all the EMT's, firefighters, doctors, nurses, orderlies, security officers, maintenance crew, receptionists, valet attendants, radiology technicians, PCA's, assistants, basically everyone that made today such an exceptional experience given the circumstances.
