“It was like we were the only people in the hospital!” By David Szumski Special to the Cape Gazette Marion Donahue shares her story with excitement and great appreciation for everyone who was a part of her care at Beebe Healthcare.  “I went to the hospital be- cause I was having severe chest pains. It was straight through the center of my chest and right through to my back. I remem- ber the pain started at 9 p.m. I thought, I’m just going to lay down, it will go away. Around 11:45, it hadn’t gone away and I decided I should go to the hospital and get checked out. I really appreciate that I was so close to Beebe.  “My husband Phil and I were at the Emergency Department in four minutes. We filled out all of my paperwork and I got a little nervous. Things were very busy and I wondered how long I would have to wait. The next thing I knew the nurses came right out into the waiting area and got me. In minutes, I was in a room in the ED.  “There was one call, and everyone came in to provide me with care. What really amazed me was how all of those people, five different nurses and technicians, how everyone knew exactly where they were supposed to be and what they were supposed to do. They did an EKG and told me that my blood pressure and heart rate were high. They were very busy, so I just relaxed there, on a nice cot, overnight.  “The next morning, that’s when I met Nurse Practitioner Charlene Madanat for the first time. She looked at me and asked, ‘How are you doing?’ I told her I was tired and my cot really wasn’t very comfortable. Charlene said, ‘Well, we will just have to see about this. You’ll be upstairs in a room in an hour.’ Next thing I know, this little an- gel came and took me upstairs to my room. Charlene came to see me very often. She was with me and Phil through everything, like she was our personal ad- vocate. It was amazing. Char- lene made me feel good when I talked to her. She has a nice, soft tone and she would hold my hand, which took away all of my worry and nervousness. Charlene kept letting me know that things were OK. They kept checking my blood work, every four hours, and there was never a sign of a heart attack.  “Later that day they took me downstairs for more cardiac testing. A lovely nurse, Sherry Daisey, took all of my informa- tion and let me know that I was going to have a stress test. The next thing I knew I got really sick. I was dizzy and nauseous and everything came crashing down. Another nurse, Anne Villalobos, said I think we need to lay her down. I then found myself on a stretcher with all of these people around me.”  Marion’s husband Phil added, “When Marion crashed in the lab, I thought she was having a real heart attack and that she was gone. One of the nurses came and found me a chair and told me that everything was going to be alright. She got me a glass of water. Charlene came and checked on me and Marion a couple of times. I was very worried, but so many people came over to reassure me.”  Marion explained, “My blood pressure had dropped really low and they couldn’t find a pulse. They called for Dr. Robert My- ers, interventional cardiologist. The next thing I know, there were three nurses, two doc- BEEBE MEDICAL GROUP Beebe General Surgery 1526 Savannah Road, Suite 2 Lewes, DE 19958 (302) 313-2000 M.
