As a Bronson employee, I thought I understood what Positivity meant, but after having an experience this past weekend as the family member of a patient, I truly understand and appreciate the meaning. My seven year old daughter, Megan, cut her ankle and required stitches, which of course was a scary and stressful situation for the whole family. We took her immediately to the Bronson Lakeview Emergency Room. We were promptly brought back to a room for treatment and both Trish, our nurse, and Dr. Dommer, the ER Physician, were in the room almost immediately. Not only did they address Megan’s cut, but they calmed her down and took the time to listen to her concerns and fears. Dr. Dommer and Trish answered Megan’s questions (my seven year old had lots of questions!) and explained everything they were doing. Our Emergency Room visit lasted just under 1 hour, and we left very pleased with the care provided. To Megan, the Emergency Room is no longer a scary place where sick people go, but rather is a place where friendly, caring people take care of your cuts and make everything better. Thank you!
