Marilee was with my husband and I on my first full day of getting induced. She immediately made her love for her job known as soon as the shift started. As a nurse myself I know how gratifying it is for a patient to acknowledge your care but absolutely nothing compares to what Marilee gave us. She was able to ease any anxiety with her knowledge and help us understand what we were in for. She called the following two days I was in the hospital to check in on us. I didn't just appreciate her care but I learned from her. She is an angel! And a hilarious one at that! Even when I felt discouraged or in pain, she was there to make us laugh. Thank you from Mariah, Erik, and Holt!

Danielle - Thank you so much for your exceptional care while my baby and I were in the mommy baby unit. I really felt like you took great care of me as I recovered from a c-section. You checked in on me but weren't at all intrusive and we greatly appreciate the time our newborn spent with you in the nursery. We were able to get some much needed rest! It really shows how much you love your job and you are great at it. Thank you so much!

A beautiful woman, with a beautiful soul. You never complain and you always keep a smile. I've seen you slammed in here, and you just smile and scurry off to the next patient. Everything you do, you do it 100%. You don't try to rush through or gloss over areas to attempt to make up for lost ground. You follow through and complete. That made me feel very trusting of your ability and knowledge. I want to thank you Miss smiles, for having a way of relaxing even me. I was blessed in having you to take care of me. Take care of yourself now, and know, you have a new lil buddy out in California. :D Love and light, Tammy

When I asked you to explain something, you did. If I just needed reassurance in a procedure getting done, you were there until I fully understood it, and to ask if I needed anything else. You are one of the most caring people I have ever met. Thank you, Deb, you gave me a friend when I had nobody. My home was over 1500 miles away in California. I want to thank you for that. God Bless you and yours for always. Your newly found friend, Tammy <3

I would just like to take a minute and thank you for your care of my husband while he was a patient in your care! My husband was seen in the ER on 1/12/17 he was having wheezing and coughing and trouble breathing to complicate his medical picture he had suffered a MI 14 year prior which had a significant impact on his heart . Initially on intake they gave him a breathing treatment and a dose of cardizem which seem to have a almost immediate positive affect on him. The doctors had decided to admit him because of his cardiac history so we were waiting on a bed to become available. While we were waiting my husband starting to become very pale and sweating which gave me great concern since he had seemed to start feeling and looking so much better with just breathing treatment and some medication. Seeing his eyes start to roll back in his head and the extreme sweating really alarmed me so I informed his nurse and she came in to check him. She had decided to check to see if he had been running a fever when she could not get a temperature on him she said she thought maybe his blood sugar was low so she decided to check his blood sugar his blood sugar was not especially low but she had mentioned that patients with this problem were hard to get a temperature reading on! So this situation concerned everyone and all the doctors had returned to look again at my husband to make sure they had not missed anything while the doctors were scratching their heads the nurse "Joyce " had suggested we try giving him some orange juice? The doctors were s skeptical thinking maybe something more serious was going on. I said to the doctors "would it hurt to just try giving him some orange juice"? So we did that and almost immediately he started to come out of it! I know the doctors were doing their best to figure out what was going on because my husband heart was pretty severely damaged in his heart attack, but "Joyce" was the one who had figured it out and I just want you and her to know how greatful we both are for being fortunate enough to have "Joyce " as his nurse. My husband is Dr. Mark Klug he was in the ER on 1/12/17, he was in bed 15 if that helps! Please relay our thanks to her she h a real asset to the Kettering Healthcare system and he was so privileged to have the benifit of her experience and knowledge. Sincerely, Rhonda L Klug

I was admitted first for observation. All the nurses and nurses sides were great. Corey was great. But Lisa really anticipate d my needs, even though I am not in the habit of asking for help. She cut up my salad even. You feel alone in the hospital when you are faced with alot of Medical problems. And my husband could not be with me alot because he works 12 hours a day because of the strain my needs puts on us. The nurse I had the day before also helped me immensely. She had worked 16 hours, and was red-faced, and had sort of reddish hair. I so wish I could remember her name. I think she was the charge nurse then. I was well taken care of by good people. Also, yesterday, there was a tired, very sweet black woman. A nurses aid. People don't know how hard hospital workers work. And maybe they should get more gratitude. Thank you.

Dear Sara, You took care of my dad, Howard Emil Stakelin Jr., on his last day here on Earth 1/3/17, your care was a blessing in the heartbreak of our lives. Our dad was the leader of our family , the strongest man we all ever knew, and beside my mom for 46 yrs. Though we are beyond sad that he has left us, we know that he was here the last 5 yrs by the grace of God enduring tremendous amounts of pain. He fought bravely by the day. He spent his last Christmas with us in his oldest grandson's home with his first great granddaughter and that was a blessing words cannot explain. We didn't want to let him go, but he was so very tired, not one day that I have here on earth will ever be the same without my dad. He would do anything for me, he still told me I was beautiful almost every time I spent with him, he sang to me every year on my birthday, I am almost 50... now that is determination.... He made us laugh - he would tell us every phone call when we would ask how are you Dad? "oh older and uglier...." Thank you for taking fine care of our most important man ever, you kept him comfortable and with dignity, and we will always think of you as we remember his last breath, day with us... Peace be with you.

Colby, You took care of my Dad -Howard Emil Stakelin Jr. on Dec. 26,2017, in the ER. You were so amazing, you took your time and when he asked the same question over and over - you never looked bothered or treated him bad. He told us he was not going to make it, and we lost Dad on 1/3/17, he fought very hard to be with us these last few years. Thank you for giving him dignity and understanding his hardship. We were obviously under great stress and knew how gravely ill our father was. You have a special gift that you are sharing with strangers daily - we are lucky to have gotten to see it with our Dad. Thank you for your care.

Every time I share my son's birth story I have to brag about every nurse at Kettering, and Kayla in particular. We shared an emotional moment as she was about to be off duty after being with me through most of my labor. She made me feel comfortable and in control. I am so grateful she was on duty that night.
