The staff at Saddleback Medical Center saved my life. How do you thank someone for that? How do you thank someone for the gift of life? How do you thank someone for giving you the opportunity to watch your kids grow up and to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries with your family? Saddleback Medical Center has given me this gift of life, which I am very grateful for and every morning I wake up and thank God for giving me another day to celebrate life. When I was asked to join the PFAC I did not give it a second thought. Now I can pay it forward to others who might benefit from my input about my experience.
One thing that I have learned by being on the PFAC is that change does not happen overnight; change takes time. It has been rewarding to see the HCAHPS hospital survey scores go up during the last few months. Also, it has been a pleasure to get to know the staff and see how passionate they are about their jobs and patients.
