T.J. Samson Hospital is among about 100 hospitals implementing an innovative program to make patients feel more at ease. Most hospitals don’t allow pets in patients’ rooms, and they usually don’t air funny TV movies. But this is frequently the scene at T.J. Samson Community Hospital, which is working to become a Planetree-designated facility. Planetree is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to create an atmosphere of serenity and even playfulness in hospital rooms. Besides the Planetree philosophy, T.J. Samson is one of two hospitals in Kentucky authorized to perform emergency angioplasty procedures on heart attack patients while not having a cardiac surgery program.
