God sent angel you are! From start to end of shift you did a fantastic job. You were very patient and you really cared with passion. You got my father to smile, talk, and eat something he hadnt done in 3 days prior to coming to Kettering. You took the stress load off by finding reliable resources on your lunch break to help my family out. When i say we will never forget you I mean that! You put a special place in our hearts to me knowing once I left my father was in good hands with you. Thanks for all you did that day. I’m still smiling. Employees like yourself make a difference who truly care about what they do for their patients.

We are so thankful for all the wonderful care Brenda provided to our little Adalynn during her stay in the NICU. Brenda became like family and was always willing to listen and better explain things when I did not understand what was going on.

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: 2 North
My Name is Charles Johnson. I was a patient in 2 North in Room 2316 in January prior to bowel obstruction surgery on January 15. I had suffered from a very painful chronic bowel obstruction condition resulting in over a dozen hospital admissions since 2001. The surgical. team of Dr. Andersen is confident that my condition has been cured by the surgery. My care during my many admissions has been superb and particularly by the Nurses, Nurses Assistants and Staff of 2 North during my last admission. Even though there were certainly many more, I want to thank Nurses Roberta, Zack, Melissa, Monica, Cathy for their sympathetic and caring support during my stay and recovery. My wife Teresa and I are forever in your debt.

I hope this finds the right nurse. I just want to say thank you SO much to Cary for helping me get through the birth of my first daughter. I had a long and challenging induction but she made it so much better for me. She started my induction before her shift was over and came back for her next shift and worked with me again. There’s something so calming and special that her presence helped with. She went above and beyond for me and even talked about tv shows between contractions to take my mind off the situation. I could not have done it without her. I went in to the induction absolutely terrified and my fears were eased. So thank you again. You and the other labor and delivery nurses and staff are AMAZING and I was so lucky to be placed in your care!!! Stacey Hodge & baby Finlee Hodge :)

Cheryl, What can I say!?!? You are the reason so many people become nurses! It is by watching you in your element, caring for a patient, that an individual would want to be like you. I watched you care for my daughter while she labored and knew she was going to be perfectly fine. With love and humor you led her through the labor process. And to top it stayed past your shift until baby Lincoln was born. As a nurse myself I learned so much by just watching you. Thank you so much Cheryl. I will never forget you! Janelle

Thank you for everything you did for me. You made me feel safe and cared for! No matter what was going on you made time for me and I felt better knowing you would be back. You made me look forward to your part of my stay, I had a few good nurses but nobody compares to you. You can tell you love your work and your patients, and in return I can't help but love you. Thank you again and I hope grandview realizes what they have in you! Fred

I am the daughter of Douglas Fordyce. My Dad had a heart cath at your facility yesterday, 01/28/19. His nurse, Dan was EXCEPTIONAL! He not only made my Dad feel comfortable by taking wonderful care of him, answering his questions and listening to his stories but he also was reassuring to our family and I really appreciate it! He obviously goes above and beyond in his work and I wanted it known how happy we were with his care and kindness. Thank you Dan!

I was admitted into the emergency room at approximately 4:30 pm on 1/28/19. I was suffering greatly from impacted bowels but the nursing staff ministered my care professionally and with humor trying to calm my agitated state. My bowels are now clear and I'm feeling much better. I owe my great results to the excellent care I received from physicians and nurses from your emergency trauma center. I especially wish to thank the nurse who so pleasantly cleaned me up after my bowels finally broke loose at 3:00 this morning. She was such a sweet gentle lady. I kept apologizing for causing her extra work and she told me she loved her job and loved helping patients like me. She sent me home in a relaxed and calm state and for that, I wish to commend her. She and the rest of your emergency room staff are a credit to the fine care Greene Memorial provides our little town of Xenia. Thanks again. You folks were fantastic.

The nurseing staff were all very helpful as well but I would especially like to thank Dan for an outstanding job! He really went far beyond what was required of him. Thank you all very much, Doug Fordyce

Thank you for listening to my daughter's concerns about me, and for being by my bedside the whole time. Though I could not remember what had happened, I remembered you were right by my side the whole time, holding my hand and telling me it will all be okay. Despite having 6 patients on your own, you delivered excellent nursing care. You were more like a friend than a nurse, I felt safe having you as my nurse. The extra trip that you made to ICU after you got off work, just to see how I was doing and to pray with me, made my heart melt. So thank you, Zoe :)

Soin Medical Center, Unit: Emergency
I am a nursing student at Cedarville University and spent some time at Soin last semester (October through December). I had the pleasure of interacting with a lot of wonderful nurses and am so grateful for the things I learned from them! It was rare to work with a nurse that wasn't quick to educate and encourage. I can't believe I forget these details, but I believe it was the nurse manager that really made an impact on me. I don't remember her name, but she goes around to all of the patients to ask about their experience. One particular day I was working in the ED she approached my nurse and me and gave us a quick word of encouragement that our patient was very pleased with how we were treating them. She specifically pointed out that I was doing a great job. It is uncommon for nurses we students are not working with- especially leadership- to even acknowledge our presence on the floor. This nurse not only took the time to acknowledge my presence but also to encourage me in my endeavors. That meant so much to me and will stick with me for a long time. Everyone in the ED was so great to work with and I'm very grateful for my time there! Thank you!

Paula stepped in when she realized I was not getting the care I needed. She not only met my medical needs but my emotional needs as well. Her empathy during my recovery from surgery made the uncertainty of my situation seem a little bit better in that moment. I wish I could get her a bouquet of daisy. I feel strongly that she deserves a daisy award for her excellent care!

One of the sweetest, most caring, sincere, dedicated people I ever had the pleasure of meeting is Kat Durham, a nurse I had at Kettering Medical Center. I can’t thank her enough for making my stay as comfortable as possible. I was recently diagnosed with cancer and Kat was very uplifting and always in good spririts. She came into my room one night and noticed I had been coloring and later that day came back with an inspirational coloring book which she personally signed. Thanks, Kat! I imagine this angel of a human being has touched many lives because she has certainly touched mine. Thank you so much for everything!

I wanted to thank John for his kindness and caring during my recent visit to the ER. John listened to everything I wanted to say and truly cared. John made sure he was in the room with me when new member of the hospital would visit me to act as my advocate and make for an easy transition. John is truly an asset to Sycamore and deserves an atta-boy from his supervisors. I am currently writing this while still admitted at the hospital and everyone I have encountered has been caring and amazing!
