During the HCAHPS interview, our
patients are asked if they would like
to see a specific employee
congratulated or thanked for the care
he or she provided during the visit.
Mercy Hospital emergency room visit, even though it
was something I didn't want to do, it was very
pleasant. Mark Label was excellent and very professional physician's assistant and gave me all the information I needed and even said I could follow up if
needed be with the emergency room. Jodie I think
was the name of the nurse, she is dark haired, very
sweet, has been at Mercy Hospital I think for 20
years, she did an excellent job. She was usually with
me in the room other than when she had to just go
off for brief moments, but otherwise she stayed right
with me. The other person I would like to commend
is Angel in the lab, she was very sweet, I had just
met Angel that day and she did an excellent
job. All three of them had a way of making you feel
calm. At that emergency room visit I never had the
opportunity to visit with the person at the front
desk, but if it's any reflection of how the emergency
room went, I would hopefully assume that the rest of
the ER and staff are the same.
I don't know her name but she was the
nurse, dark haired and tall. And I want
to thank her for everything that she did
because she made me feel comfortable
and explained a lot.
I was well satisfied
with it. I was very
well taken care of.
I would like to thank the
little pregnant blonde
nurse, who cleaned up all
the puke all over the floor.
We really appreciated that
I believe she might be called a
primary nurse, the first one
that came in contact with us
and asked us all kinds of
questions and stuff like that.
She was nice and professional
and did her best to make us feel
I thought they were very, very good in the emergency
room, but I can't remember what her name was, Liana,
no, I can't remember, also the doctor's name.
He was a new doctor,
I had never seen him before. He was very nice too, I
was real impressed. I am an RN and I graduated from
Mercy Hospital many, many years ago. I was satisfied.

Thank you for
feedback to the
ROUNDING TO INFLUENCE TOPIC
At a recent morning Safety Huddle sirens went off !
Do we know what the sirens mean?
Roger Stack contacted the Fire Chief Gary Retterath about the
Emergency Sirens in Valley City to find out the answer!
Valley City has two different types of siren signals.
The first being the fire signal which is the repetitive high low signal.
The second is what Gary referred to as the “Disaster” signal.
This is a continuous High signal. Which means danger is eminent.
There could be different scenario’s,
Tornado, Severe Thunderstorm, High Winds, Hail.
Some may recall it was also used during the past floods
for alerting residents of some crest changes and to call sand baggers.
The signal is routinely tested.
Gary said that a disaster test signal will run 30 seconds,
where an actual signal will run for 3 minutes.
Tuning in to NewsDakota when they are on the
air is good way to keep abreast of hat the signal is about.
Gary also highly recommended Valley City’s “Code Red”.
This is a reverse call to your phone informing
you of impending disaster information.
Sign up information can be found on the
Valley City’s website.
