Rush Hospital honored members of its 25-year club Thursday, along with other long-time employees.

Rush Hospital's vice-president of human resources, Donnie Smith, said Rush is grateful for the dedication of its employees.

"It is so significant if you can stay with an employer for 25 years," said Smith. "There's a lot of dedication to Rush. A lot of loyalty to Rush and we just honor those folks for doing it. That's a long time to be employed by anybody. And so we are just glad that we can provide positions for them to work in and their loyalty to Rush is just something to be thankful for."

Roughly 190 people attended a banquet to celebrate the partnership.

    To Homer, My daughter's leg was an emergency. She was in so much pain until she could hardly walk. They also found a spot and she had to have more tests done to discover what it was, so please, don't think that just because it was her leg that it was not an emergency. If you use Rush, good for you, but remember, we have choices, and I HAVE MADE MINE.

    People who use the ER for a non-emergency must understand that they must wait so the more serious patients can be seen... You have no idea how many emergencies are in the ER. Andersons and Rileys do it teh same way.... If you are not an emergnecy , be prepared to wait until they can get to you, if this is a problem, aske then where the closest clinic is...Emergency Rooms are for Emergencys.... I mean REAL EMERGENCIES.....

    I have no plans to EVER go to Rush Hospital again. I took my daughter there on Nov 17th because she was having some SEVERE pain in her leg that lasted a few days. After being called to the back to give the Nurse Prac the info went sat and waited in the waiting room TWO HOURS and still didn't see the doctor. I finally went to the front desk and asked the clerk what was taking sooooooo long. She went to the back to find out and came back to tell me that the Nurse Prac said that my daughter's leg WAS NOT AN EMERGENCY AND THAT WE SHOULD HAVE GONE TO A CLINIC (they should have at least took a look at her leg). I left there and have not looked back. Her leg pain my not have been an emergency to the Nurse Prac, but it was to my daughter. To me, that was NOT GOOD SERVICE AT ALL and to the Nurse Prac, I wish you well in your career, but with that attitude, you will not make it far in the medical field as far as caring for people and maybe you should work in an area of NOT CARING FOR PEOPLE.
