Health Compliment - This hospital is wonderful

Review by best on 2006-04-20
IOWA CITY, IOWA -- This is a huge hospital but very excellent in health care. They saved my life. Especially the burn unit. The staff there is wonderful and they took me into emergency sugery and took wonderful care of me and thanks to them im alive today. I had Necrotizing Fascitis, which is known as the flesh eating bacteria. And had to have 40 pound removed out of my left side. And if it wasent dore this hodpital and Dr. Lancaster and her staff i wouldnt have made it another hour. I now have a permanent disfigurment but at least im still alive and here. I thank god for them. The Cedar Rapids hospitals couldnt help me but the University Of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City did. Thank You.

best, glad you are still with us! I've read about Necrotizing Fascitis and seen pictures. It's one of the things nightmares are made of. Nice of you to have such a good attitude about it and to compliment the hospital and doctor. Take care and tell Radar O'Reilly that I said hello!

What a wonderful end to a sad beginning. I have been personally involved with many patients that have Necrotizing Fascitis and it is a long and painful road to recovery. You are a survivor in more ways than one. It was not only the exceptional care of your Doctor and staff that helped you through, but an added help is your postitive attitude. Best wishes to you.
