Jean Boydston, who received a total knee replacement, acknowledged how much more pleasant her stay at Parkview Community Hospital was, compared to other treatment centers. "If you have to have a hospital stay or surgery, it can be unpleasant, but this was the best experience you could have! Everything was very pleasant and comfortable, and right on time. I especially liked that I had the same nurses every day on each shift--they don't rotate the nurses to other floors or areas, you will always see the same friendly faces." Parkview Community Hospital
considers this kind of consistency to be one important way of ensuring high quality, consistent patient care, allowing the nursing team to become familiar with each patient's needs.
