RLS Hospital STT - Honest Opinions
Good morning, all ~
Hoping anyone with experience as a patient at RLS Hospital will calm my nerves about having an upcoming procedure done there. I've never been admitted to a hospital anywhere and am a little freaked out by the idea. Any and all opinions are welcome and thanks in advance for your posts. Stay dry!
Whenever we place ourselves in a situation that will determine our fate we are whelmed with either confidence or nervousness based on our level of certainty regarding the outcome. No shame need exist when we harbour uncertainty, it only meens that there is something we are not certain of...like whether the store will ever get rid of those dusty cans on the shelf that no one buys even in a grave emergency. When we go to the hospital and place ourselves in the hands of professionals that have studied the workings of the human body we are not in control and that scares the dust out of us; if we don't go in and ignore what the professionals have told us is our likely fate we feel that we are in control and are not worried. (...?) The only certainty that we have is that we are not in control, but we can safeguard ourselves and find calm waters by weighing the wisdom of professionals and those experienced.
That being said, me Grandmother fell off the roof trying to patch a leak because, at 98 years, she believed that none of her grandchildren would get to it in time. RLS treated her well and gave me cousin a rude (but justified) earfull for not taking better care of her.
While I have not been treated at the rls hospital, I am to soon be an employee of the system. I am a Medical Technologist and will actually be working at the clinic on STJ, but from what I've seen and heard of the STT location you should have nothing to worry yourself with. Actually it seems that at least half of the medical staff there is recruited from the mainland and with so many different backgrounds, this can often make for a more well-rounded staff. I would also like to say that they are a Joint Commission approved hospital, which is the most common denominator for the mainland hospitals. Now I am a Laboratory professional so most of my knowledge is of the lab setting, but just to let you know they do require all the same certificates and requirements as would be required on the mainland. Hopefully this puts your mind at ease a bit...good luck...hope all goes well for you.
My husband has always been treated well there. And the food is normally pretty good as well!
Thanks to all who have responded, I really appreciate the info...I feel better already 🙂
sometimes i want to admit myself just for the food.
been treated there and they are wonderful, and a visitor to the islands had nothing but great things to say about the treatment he got there as well.
For us teachers of English language and literature, RLS means only one person: Robert Louis Stevenson.
Take a copy of his Treasure Island or, better yet, A Child's Garden of Verses.
Think good thoughts. I'm sure you will be in good hands. 🙂
