My mother-in-law, Caroline Kemppainen, had a stroke last Sunday evening June 1st. She became aphasic, and we immediately call 911. From the neurologist Dr. Ashman to all the nurses, aides, and NP (Glenn) on NCCU and NVU, she has received remarkable care and attention to her needs. I’d like to especially recognize Michelle, one of Bronson’s newest MSNs. She educated us and was an exceptional advocate for her patient. My wife’s mother was fortunate to have such wonderful, caring, and competent care.

Thank you

As a former Bronson RN I was always taking care of someone elses mother. But on August 29th, the patient being taken care of was my mother. I had gotten a call from the assisted living facility where she lived. When I arrived, it became apparent that she was having a stroke. After we arrived at the Bronson Emergency Room it was quickly determined that she was a candidate for TPA Therapy if they could bring her blood pressure into acceptable parameters. Tracey, RN, Sally, RN and Andrea RN along with Jeremy the Pharmacist, and Dr. Collins all worked very hard to finally bring her blood pressure down enough that she was able to recieve the TPA minutes before the three hour time frame had elapsed. My mother went to the Trauma Care Unit to be observed for complications from the TPA she received excellent care from Brandi RN, Cheryl, RN and Patricia RN. Because she was doing so well she went to the NVU where Lynda, RN treated her with patience and kindness. I am happy to tell you that my mom is back at home with no reisdual effects from her stroke due to the hard work of the people at Bronson. Thank you to Dr Kang and the Red team and the Internal Medicine doctors, and OT, PT, Speech, and all of the other staff who had a part in my mothers recovery.
