My mother was new to Vicksburg. She was taken to Merit Health River Region’s Emergency Department after falling while trying to get out of bed. My mother didn’t know anyone except me, but the ambulance staff, ER doctors and nurses were very kind and nurturing to her. Even though she couldn’t speak properly, they held her hand, smiled and tried to talk with her. That meant a lot to her, and to me.
The care we received was beyond good. We’ve been in a lot of hospitals with my mother, and the ER staff at Merit Health River Region went out of their way to be nice and take care of things for her. As a son, I really appreciate that. On a scale of 1-10 I’d give Merit Health River Region’s Emergency Department a 10. It’s right here in our own back yard and could mean the difference between life and death. Great people, great care.
