Select Specialty Hospital
I am currently staying at select speciality hospital in Pensacola Florida room 120. Every nurse Ive had has been amazing and helpful. Today 7/12/2012, a C.N.A. by the name of Veronica, has walked out of my room and shut the door in my face twice while i was talking to her.The first time I was taking a nap around 4:30 p.m. she didn't knock, just waked right in and turned the light on. The one right in front of my eyes, I said "ugh, why the light" in a sleepy tone, She said she had to do my vitals.I then said "OK" and rolled over a little bit and held up my arm, she turned away from me, went to leave. "Where are you" that's as far as i got before the door was shut in my face. About 20 minuets later my RN Kristin walked in, (who is amazing) I told her about what happened she apologized and I told her she had nothing to apologize for. Just now at 5:45 p.m, C.N.A. Veronica, walked in again without knocking! As soon as I saw it was her I asked if I could ask her something. She said sure,I then asked why she walked out on my earlier and before i could once again get the whole question out she informed me she could walk out of my room anytime she wanted.She didn't have to explain anything to me and she wasn't going to give me the satisfaction of a fight and shut the door again. I am in completely shock I am treated this way and Demand something be done to inform veronica how to treat people whom she is supposed to care for. No nurse or C.N.A. should ever be allowed to treat people this way. I feel unwanted and as if she could care less about anyone in the hospital. If you ever get this C.N.A during your stay her, I am truly sorry. She is NOT worthy of the title she has! Thanks for your time and concern.Adria Stoutenburg07/12/2012

The staff is the best. They have worked with us for years, work with our schedule. They have gone beyond the call of duty. I count them all as friends.
Tips & Advices
The main difference separating a heart attack from heart failure is in the underlying reasons for the occurrence. Hearts attacks can be traced to blockages in arteries and acute flares, while heart failure is more likely to be due to congenital heart disease and a more developed condition.
Arrhythmia is an abnormal beating of the heart that may feel like it comes at a fluttering, accelerated, or otherwise irregular pace. While in many cases these occurrences can be infrequent, benign and go away on their own, if persistent, they may require further consultation with a cardiologist.
Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fatty body compound used to produce hormones. It becomes a problem for heart health when there are high levels of bad cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which can lead to arterial congestion.
Visits to a cardiologist typically entail a doctor reviewing and assessing your health, and more specifically within the context of your heart health. It is important to prepare for appointments by having a list of medications and any documents related to your medical history. Some tests (like EKGs) may be administered on a first visit.
Invasive cardiologists are distinguished from non-invasive cardiologists for their ability to perform a number of specialized procedures, including pacemaker and defibrillator insertions, cardioversions and emergent angioplasties.
