My husband and I moved to the Sacramento area not long ago and my husband has an intrathecal pump implanted for pain control (dual lumbar fusion, etc.) we were having a very difficult time finding a facility on our insurance that would do the pump maintenence and he ended up having the morphine run out of the pump and he was going through some very severe withdrawl symptoms - he was feverish, vomiting - he fell twice in the ER and the nurses there did nothing to even try to help him up off of the floor. Due to the incompetence, we ended up having to come back to the ER 4 times over the week end until I finally insisted that he be admitted and this was finally done, once he got up on to the floor the nurses were wonderful. But the ER nurses and doctors were rude, disrespectful, insensitive and just downright cruel. Even telling him maybe next time you ll think about what you re putting in your body ITS AN INTRATHECAL PUMP!!! This was implanted by a physician - its not something that is done for recreational purposes I can assure you. Wrote a letter of complaint to the CEO, but of course we never got any response. Just a HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE ER experience!!

On 18 February 2009 my 6 wk old grandson was rushed by ambulance to Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento, Ca. With him was the special flight team that SMH sent up here to pick him up from Fremont Hospital in Yuba City. Dustin was admitted into our hospital with RSV and within 5 hrs it was decided his condition was far more serious than our hospital was equipped to care for. My daughter followed behind the ambulance in a car as the medical team sent was large and room in the ambulance was limited. When Dustin arrived at SMH there was a full medical staff waiting and ready to go to work for Dustin. He was put on life support (RSV attacks the lower respitory tracts in the lungs where the airways are very small, especially in such a tiny newborn, he couldn't breathe on his own) immediately. When I walked into the room that evening he was getting a blood transfusion and a machine was breathing for him, he was at his worst. For 10 days this machine breathed for him while the most skilled and caring staff I've ever watched worked to figure out why this little guy was taking so long to show any real improvement. On the night he was taken off the ventillator we got to hold him for the first time...a second time. For 3 days after being extubated he had to remain on a high flow oxygen thing that kept his lungs inflated so he could start breathing for himself. He was monitored another day after being off of everything and released. If it hadn't been for the excellent medical skills and extensive knowledge of the staff in the PICU: Special Care Unit, and the many other staff members at SMH, I wouldn't be looking at the little butterball sleeping on my bed right now. I watched him take his first step a month ago and now he refuses to crawl. He is the happiest baby I've ever seen. If you ever have to go to the hospital, this is the one I would insist on.

I just want to Thank this wonderful hospital for the safe arrival of my twins. This hospital has the best Neonatal unit around. My twins were born on December 8th, 1982 2 1/2 months early weighing 2lbs 9oz and 3lbs 11oz. Their names are Tami and Toni Dalton. I received the best care of any hospital I have ever been in. I just wanted to say Thanks for giving them a wonderful start in life. They both have grown up to have families of their own and are very thank for their wonderful start in life.

My son was born at Sutter Memorial Hospital, 5 years ago. The nursing staff was awesome and very caring. Even though the hospital is older then some in the area, I know that I received the best possible care.
