Greene Memorial Hospital, Unit:
We’d like to thank Bonita for the advocacy she provided for our sister Robin Wright. We were unable to be at the hospital the first two days due to illness. Bonita befriended Robin and spoke to the doctors on her behalf. She got Robin a stuffed animal and flowers for her room. She understood Robins’s special needs. Thank you Bonita for going the extra mile for our sister.

Michelle Butler
Southview Medical Center, Unit:
There are not enough words to explain how absolutely phenomenal Michelle is. I'm actually not sure if she is a nurse or an aide. But I would be remiss to not acknowledge someone as extraordinary as her! I had a hysterectomy Nov 27th and I was in the worst pain I had ever experienced. That evening Michelle came to my room and her smile was so bright and reassuring. She treated me as if I was family. She answered all of my questions and attended to all of my needs. She is TRULY a blessing to Southview. I suffer from PTSD, which is not something I tell people. Even before I shared this with her, she went above and beyond her call of duty to make sure that I was comfortable while I was there. I just appreciated her so much! Please make sure she is aware of how much she is appreciated. Good employees with a sincere heart to help people are hard to find!!

Jim Brook (unsure, but think this is it)
Other, Unit: xray guy
I just wanted to let someone know what a wonderful gentleman Jim is. I brought my mother to the Middletown facility to have her back xrayed. She can be very difficult to deal with at times, didn't want to go in the first place or have the exam done. Jim took the time to explain why the exam was necessary, what he was going to do, and charmed my mother with his delightful, gentle personality. Then when leaving he pushed my mother out to our car. Mother even hugged him and said she will only go to him in the future. Please give him kudos, he definitely deserves. Thank you, Lisa

Julie has truly been the most kind, compassionate, and caring person that I have ever come in contact with in a behavioral health facility. She has gone out of her way to make me feel like I matter and that I will be able to succeed in treatment. I don't know what I would do without her and would like her to be recognized for always going above and beyond when it comes to patient satisfaction and patient care. Thank you, Julie! The same goes for Melanie who also is a therapist at KBMC. You all are sure lucky to have both of them on your staff. Please extend my gratitude and how much I appreciate them.

Laura Unknown
Soin Medical Center, Unit: Float
I have had the pleasure to come into contact with Laura twice. Both times being very hard times on our family. This last time was on 11/4/2018 during our late term miscarriage. Laura was very compationate and had another nurse cover her rooms so she did not leave me. She had worked a long shift and was having a rough day, when we arrived I know her shift got even rougher. After her long shift she left and came back with flowers and prayed with us. She is truly a kind soul and I am very thankful she was there with our family during the worst night of our lives.

A Thank You I never got to say. First, ALL the nurses were the best I have nothing but good thoughts and wishes for them all, from my surgery in June the ones who prepped me to the surgical team they were fantastic. From my admittance in July for liver failure a truly scary time but, they made it bearable especially Nina ( I hope I got your name right ) I felt I was your only patient as you gave me 4 units of plasma, you spent a lot of time working on me and I want you to know you were truly a blessing, a bright spot in a dark time that I will never forget. May God Bless You.

Posted by Sharon K. Igli on 11/16/18
Kettering Medical Center, Unit:
I do not have the names of the nurses or staff that I came in contact with in the emergency room on the evening of October 17, 2018 (beginning around 11:30 p.m.) when my friend (Mitch) was in the ER for what was eventually diagnosed as a mild heart attack. He received outstanding care in the ER. Everyone explained exactly what they were doing and why it was being done. I recall a physician's assistant who came in to get some medical history and current symptoms from Mitch, as well as answer our questions. After he was finished, he turned to me, and said I looked as if I still had more questions. He was so kind; I know he knew I was worried. He was willing to take the extra time to answer my additional questions. Eventually, Mitch was moved to the Coronary Care Unit in the early hours of the morning of October 18th. I do not recall the name of the nurse (possibly Tim) assigned to him, but there was something about him that provided comfort to me that Mitch was going to receive good care. We knew a heart cath was being done that morning but did not know the time. Mitch being stabilized, I returned home to take care of our dogs and get some sleep. The nurse said he would get off duty (I believe) around 6 or 6:30 a.m. and that he would call me to let me know before he went off duty if the time of the heart cath was known. I awoke early that morning, so I decided to call this nurse. When he took my call, he said "I was just getting ready to call you." He did not yet know the time of the heart cath, but the important thing is he remembered that someone at home was waiting for his call and would have followed through on his promise had I not called him. My compliments also to the nurse (a young woman) who came on duty that morning, the medical personnel where Mitch was taken for the heart cath procedure, and the nurses who did the recovery care. Additionally, Mitch was very blessed to have had Dr. Brian Schwatrz perform the heart cath. When we discussed with Dr. Schwartz the heart cath procedure, it was as if Mitch was his only patient. Dr. Schwartz took his time to explain the procedure and said a prayer with us, which was so appreciated. I truly believe that certain people are meant to pass through our lives -- even if briefly --when they are needed. We were fortunate to have had these medical professionals on duty during this medical crisis.

I’d like to thank Amy for the outstanding care and concern she provided me during my first chemo treatment. Needing chemo treatments is a very scary and unknown territory and she was so kind and reassuring about the process and side effects that I may experience. She did a great job explaining how the various components of the blood work done are monitored for progress. Please convey my deep appreciation.

Megan was helping helping a patient with PT when I came to speak with the individual about skilled rehabilitation at my facility. The patient was very apprehensive and unsure if she wanted skilled rehab. Megan stated she had worked in a facility before and relayed her experience in how the residents are stronger and more confident when they are discharged. She was kind, listened and answered questions you never would have know she had other patients to work with.

Mary Ann made a terrible visit to the hospital more like a somewhat pleasant overnight stay. She accommodated me in having my wife stay over and that made the visit so much better. She went above and beyond in taking care of me and her bubbly personality helped alleviate my concerns and made the stay more than bearable. She anticipated my needs and was really considerate of my need to rest. I appreciate all that she and Kettering Medical did to make a bad night into a decent memory. Thanks, Bob Sterzenbach

I came into the infusion center for a rhogam injection for a recent miscarriage. As you can imagine it was an emotional appointment for me, and Stacia put me at ease and was just so kind about the upsetting situation. She even gave me a hug before I left. Someone she had just met, but she could tell I needed it. I really appreciate her kindness, nurses rock.

Sara Williams
Southview Medical Center, Unit: L&D
My husband John and I prayed daily during my pregnancy for health and safety for both our daughter and myself as well as having a wonderful delivery. The week prior to induction I had a breast biopsy for a breast cancer scare. Fear took over us and my worries made me focus on the “what if’s” instead of my faith fully. It also made me not focus solely on our delivery. We went in to get induced still not knowing the results and thinking we most likely wouldn’t know until after we left the hospital. We were blessed to have Sara Williams as our nurse. She was the person to update our OB that the test results were back to let us know they weee negative before we got induced. It sounds like a small task, but it wasn’t. As a nurse, I know there are many nurses that wouldn’t take that time to look at a result. She provided us so much deep peace before we were set to meet our daughter. We didn’t feel that possible impending doom while going through labor. She was our nurse during the whole labor and there when we met our daughter. She made us feel safe. It was obvious she was very knowledgeable in her field and her love for others and nursing was easily shown with everything she did during our shift. Nursing is definitely her calling. We can’t thank Sara enough for what she provided for our family that day. Our family was deeply blessed by having her with us.

Sarah Campbrill
Other, Unit:
My family and I go to the family practice of Dr. Basundhra in Beavercreek on Kemp road, "kemp road family practice". Every time we take our children in the office Sarah Campbrill (one of the staff members) is always extremely friendly and very helpful when it comes to making our kids feel comfortable and relaxed while we are there. I recently brought in my youngest daughter to the doctor the other day because she was sick and Sarah went out of her way to make my daughter feel excited to be there since she doesn't like going to the doctors. Sarah had her smiling the entire time we were there and even made it a fun game out of testing her for strep throat which made it so much easier. She made her a glove balloon along with other things. I am a manager in retail and have been for over 9 years and even though the doctors office isn't retail I have never seen someone give that much assistance and kindness to anyone just to make them feel comfortable and happy before. Sarah Campbrill is definitely an asset to Kettering Health Network and definitely deserves to be recognized for her commitment and dedication she provides. I am looking forward and most of all my daughters look forward to go back to Kemp road family practice because of Sarah, along with all the kind and patient receptionists, nurses and doctors. Thanks again Sarah and Kemp road family practice.

I wanted to thank the nurse who helped deliver my baby. Unfortunately, I don’t remember her name. I delivered him on September 30th at 3:37pm. Prior to having him I had been coming to L&D every week for NST’s. This same nurse was often attending to me during those NST’s so the day I came in to deliver I was excited that she was there and was going to be the one attending to me on such an incredible and memorable day!! I want to thank her for being so attentive and encouraging throughout my labor and delivery! She helped me get through some tough contractions especially towards the end. She kept me motivated and focused on my plan to have a medication free labor. She was so calm and kind. I had an amazing birth experience because of her and the entire Kettering staff that attended to me!!

Please share this with others there were so many nurses who took such good care of me. This thank you is long overdue. I'm doing great now it has been a long road but everything is coming together. I'm down to a "svelte" 215 pounds and I walk 5 miles nearly every day. That's a long way from celebrating 1 lap around the unit! Nurses never get thanked enough so I hope this helps a little. I'll always believe it was the nursing staff that saved my life. Bless you all!

She kept me calm during my epidural, which I was TERRIFIED to get. I was very tense, and crying non stop. She was extremely comforting and reassuring during the process. Thank you for being such a comforting caring nurse, Kelli! Its a very scary experience, at least to me it is, and everyone deserves to have a nurse like you by their side.

She went Above and beyond what any nurse had to do. Very attentive, compassionate, concerning and always there when we ask. She is the prime example of what a nurse is and should be! If every nurse did what she does, the health care industry as a whole would be top notch! Thank you again Rebekah for making my stay, although very painful and under unpleasant circumstances, the most comfortable and welcoming stay i could have ever ask for. Not only didn’t you care for me you made sure my wife was just as comfortable and taken care of as well. You are awesome and the best nurse by far at Kettering!

I had knee surgery August 24th with Dr. Ames and Cindy was the nurse that took care of me during my stay prior to surgery. She was professional, caring, pleasant, a delight to talk to. She made me feel totally at ease prior to my surgery. I have tried to call the Medical Center to thank her in person but I can't seem to find her. Please let her know that I am thankful for what she did for me that day. She made a difficult situation so much easier for me and I couldn't be more grateful. Thanks Cindy.

Dear Chelsea and Vivian, During my stay both of you not only exceeded your job expectations but went above and beyond. My comfort and well-being seemed to be a priority for you. My son- who stayed with me was never made to feel like he was in the way. Being a nurse is hard and sometimes a thankless job. I wanted to sincerely thank you both and Fort Hamilton for providing such elite care and concern. Chelsea is highly efficient,organized, and personable. Vivian was steadfast, knowledgeable, and maternal. Jen, the supervisor was also hands on and friendly. There’s is nothing worse than having a team who is not friendly and solely mechanical. I was in room 533 with my son. I’m a single mother and felt as if your team was accommodating to me in ways that helped ease my mind for his well-being. As you know recovering health is much easier when you have peace of mind. Again, accolades to all of you and the Fort Hamilton hiring process. If only patients could request nurses! You would all be me first request! Sincerely, Lisa McMillion Room 533

Karen, I have thought of you many times since my premature labor and delivery on 8/24/18. You made me feel safe and cared for during a time when I was very scared. You eased my husband’s fears as he was worried about what would happen to me and the baby. We couldn’t have done it without you and are so grateful you were my nurse that day. Harry is still in the NICU, but is doing much better and will hopefully come home next week!

You made her felt like she was your top priority after watching you tend to your other patients. Every 30 minutes you came to check on her. She felt so much better after getting her personal care! She did not need to hit her call button at all. You was on it! Because of you Kettering is her #1 choice. We will never forget you or your kindness for our grandma during her time in need and recovery process. You're Awesome and you're going to excel far!!!! "WE LOVE YOU FROM THE HEART" GRAY FAMILY

Good morning, I apologize that I don't have your last name. i should have gotten it before I left the hospital, but the whole baby brain thing kind of got in the way. Then when I called to get it, I got to busy talking you up, I hung up before I remembered to get it. I just wanted to say that I am so grateful that you were our nurse during the day that I delivered Charlotte. You were funny, witty and yet direct, which is exactly what I needed. I appreciated that you called me out on being a slight "overachiever" - no BS and love that. To be quite honest with you, I wasn't too nervous or scared about the actual delivery part - the whole after the fact with my history of PE is what made me the most scared. You made me feel a lot more at home and comfortable. Even my husband talked about how great you were who is tight with compliments to begin with - also you got Mr. White Coat Syndrome to come to my side during delivery - you deserve Nurse of the Year just for that!!! Anyway, again, Thank you. Charlotte has been adjusting well at home and getting used to her big brother, our first baby Striker - a needy 8 year old labradoodle who is already in love with her. i'm sure you've probably received the Daisy Award a 100 times - if there is something bigger than that, you deserve it!

Everything you did for my mom to make her and my dad comfortable. You even stayed pass your time to just do that! I know you will excel and do great things. My dad will always remember that good coffee you made him! We will always remember the care you gave us as a family. Felt like we were your only patients. You listened, you cared, you helped, and it was over and beyond. Watching you and my dad laugh together I knew he was in good hands with you. Thank you! YOU ROCK!

I have cancer and just got chemo and my blood counts are low now so I wasn't expecting to have a surgery at this time. She took over an hour to let me give her additional information about my health so the doctors knew what all issues I have and special needs. She deserves to be acknowledged for her compassionate and patience. Thanks Mindy!

We have been praising him to everyone we speak to about our experience. Nurse Teresa was super sweet and the best first impression of the hospital. The surgery wait room staff were very attentive with my needs and even walked me to the café so that I didn't get lost. They helped everyone with a smile and kind heart that walked into the area. I felt safe and in good hand, knowing they were there if I had any questions. They even gave out snack, that was a nice touch. Thank you Grandview! You are amazing!!

That right there showed me and my family what kind of person you were. You gave me the best care. You treated me with the utmost respect. You always had a pleasant attitude. You never spoke down to me because I was a patient, instead you recognized my background in the medical field and treat me accordingly. You spoke to me as an equal. You actually listened to me and took my concerns seriously. I want you to know you are the kind of RN people always hope to have.

She put the IV in and made sure I was comfortable. The entire time we had wonderful conversations that made me feel at ease. She took my ribbing like a champ and put up with me. She even sat with me when I was waiting for the other nurses to come and get me. She continually checked up on me and took care of me until I was wheeled off to surgery. I didn’t get a chance to thank her for everything she did. Cindy was wonderful to me. She is truly someone very special. Please send her my regards and let her know that I greatly appreciate her.

For new parents (and grandparents) in such a scary situation, the support of the NICU staff was such a blessing to all of us. They were kind, loving, compassionate, encouraging and comforting.

I just want to thank you for your awesome hospitality while my mom was a patient there in the ICU. From the moment you took over her care to the time she left you went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure not only the patient was taken care of but the family as well. I wanted your manager and Kettering Heath Network to know what a great nurse you are.

Huge thank you Jeffery for yet again getting me through another one of these Back Procedures (Ablation). I really can't thank you enough for the "Oh so welcomed" distracting conversation before the impending doom. It really helps to take my mind off building anxiety. Even more so, walking me through the procedure, what to expect and most important, the count down to end. Oh ya...the "Breathe" part helps too. You're a great guy, I really appreciate ALL you've done for me to help me get through these things. I really hope i don't have to come back anytime soon, but if I do I look forward to you being there. Peace Brother, Brad McFarland PS: the 1.5 Tesla is 63.87mhz (42.58 MHz/T) x (1.5T) = 63.87 MHz. the 3.0 Telsa is twice as fast, 127.74 MHz. We had one of them right, LOL

I was very anxious about the Ablation, the pain and if it would even work, you put all that to rest after telling me your success with the similar procedure. I hope i don't have to come back any time soon, but if I do i hope you'll be there as well. Peace, Brad

I didn't even realize they came in the room at first when I was in deep sleep. Let them know I appreciate their sense of humor Cause I have one myself and am a hard egg to crack sometimes but they cracked a smile on my face or grin even if I have to have my gallbladder checked again I want them to be at my bedside.

Kasey was my nurse 8 months ago when i delivered my second child at Kettering, and when she walked in the room today for my D&C I felt flooded with relief. She has a really capable and confident presence that made me feel like everything was going to be okay, even though I was having a miscarriage. She is so kind, patient, thoughtful, and caring. She really deserves extra recognition for being such a great nurse. She was great when my baby was born, but even in the face of my devastating loss she made it just a little more manageable and for that I will always be grateful. You have a rare gem in that nurse and you need to hold on to, and applaud her. Thank you Kasey for your kindness and empathy.

Jeffery ?
Sycamore Medical Center, Unit: SH Angio L
I know his name is Jeffery, but I'm not sure if he's a nurse or medical Tech. He's the guy that always preps me for the back injections that Dr. Nirmala Abrahams does on my back. He's a tall, Bald guy with a (red hair) goatee in the SH Angio Lab (i think??) Jeff's a great guy, over the course of a dozen back injections he's always been the guy that wheels me in and out of the procedure with Dr. A. I owe him at least a dozen thank yous for helping me get through a very painful procedure. It's comforting to have someone to distract you and keep the stress from building up before the needles go in. He plays a vital role during the procedure by reminding me to "breathe" and "relax" as I'm being "shish-kabobed". I really think the big guy is there to keep me from jumping up off the table at the wrong time. he's like the "Bouncer" of the back pain room. LOL He deserves a dozen long overdue recognitions for keeping the stress level down and my mind off the impending doom of the VooDoo Doll procedure these past 3 years. Thanks Jeff Peace, Brad

Dear Poppy,I had the opportunity to meet you today for the first time while you were rendering dialysis care to my oldest brother, Robert. When my daughter and I entered his ICU room for a visit, I recall greeting you and saying, “Hello, you must be Poppy!, and I have heard nothing but great things about you!” I introduced myself and shared with you all the great feedback I received from my youngest brother, Kelvin, whom had praised and recognized your outstanding work and care rendered to our brother. On behalf of the Hicks & Newell & Fletcher families, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to you for caring for our family member. We also received a phone call this afternoon advising his condition has drastically improved and he was breathing on his own, and is well on his way to recovery. As a former healthcare worker for twenty years, I can appreciate how stressful it is to work efficiently and courteously when a patient is critically ill. Thanks again, & May God Bless You!

My daughter recently visited the Greene Memorial ER due to extreme muscular back pain. As always, her care was extremely good. Everything from check-in to check-out was professional and timely. Bottom line was she arrived in great pain and a few short hours later walked out feeling nearly 100%. Many were involved in her care, but I specifically remember two RNs -- Emily and Kyla. So thanks to all, but especially them.

Nick was wonderful to my Mom under very trying conditions. He always had a smile and a wonderful way to connect with patients and family. He was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure that not only my Mom but we were aware of what was going on. Thanks to Nick for being there for her. Your awesome.

Taneisha( I'm sorry I didn't get her last name) was the nurse for my mother this past week on 3 South, and she was phenomenal. My mom had just been referred to Hospice care, and was in a great deal of pain.Taneisha was patient, kind, caring, supportive, understanding, skilled, every good quality that one could ask for in a nurse. I was so comfortable knowing that my mom was in her care. She was a blessing from God in our time of need!

I would just like the thank Megan for the exceptional care she provided for my father after his heart attack. After some issues contacting the cardiologist, Megan took the situation into her own hands and got the answers we were looking for. As a nurse myself, I know how stressful it can be to deal with critical patients and patients’ families, but Megan went above and beyond to make sure our questions were answered. She eased our fears and took exceptional care of my dad and my family and I are extremely grateful.

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Ambulatory
Hi, Laura. Sometimes, you don't know everything about a patient.I have a lot of anxiety-my dad would punish me when I was a kid for getting sick.My mom and I once duct taped my sister's kneecap back on so we wouldn't get in trouble.It was literally hanging by a piece of skin-she cut it sliding down a hill on a clay pipe. On top of that, yesterday I was thinking about my husband's upcoming open heart surgery. I could not stop crying. Our roles will be switched.I'll be waiting to see if he will make it or not.My brain tells me he will, but who knows. The fact of the matter is, you took 20 minutes out of your day and made me feel like I was the only patient that mattered in the entire facility. I wanted to let you know how special that was to me and to thank you. You eased my aching heart and calmed my fear and anxiety. I just wanted to make certain to tell you that it meant the world to me. You are truly a special nurse, Laura. Thank you for your commitment to excellence. I hope that you forward this to the DON for me. She needs to see it! Thank you so very much! Sincerely, Alexis Patterson

I am unsure of your last name, but you were working in the ER on 3/31 around 5pm. My grandpa came into Grandview very unstable with heart issues. Your name was Katie, and I just had to make sure you got recognition. You were the most active, communicative, and friendly nurse I think I’ve ever encountered in a hospital, especially ER. You made sure that my grandpa and all of my family were comfortable, and had so much medical knowledge and explanation for my grandma who was frantic. You came in more times than I can count just to check on everyone. I wanted to personally thank you for being the kind of nurse that every medical facility needs. You are a one of a kind, and we appreciate you. Keep being who you are! I am sure many other patients and their families will agree.

Trey
Grandview Medical Center, Unit: Emergency
My 22 yr old son was over whelmed with not only his birth father has collapsed and is unable to communicate but my son must now make all decision reguarding a man whom he only meet one time because he is the only living relative. A nurse Trey was by far not just very knowledgeable in his profession but made sure all proper documention was in order but stayed with my son ( on the phone because we are 1800 miles away) until my son had a good understand of what was going on medically but also legally. I was so extreamly impressed with this mans professionalism and human kindness. Trey thank you from the bottom of my heart because you not only have my son knowledge of what is already happened but what he is to expect and also what he can do to find additional information but you gave him the reassurance to take a min to absorb what is going on and you didn’t force or rush him into anything. You Trey are what a NURSE is to represent. Honor, knowledge, human compassion and professionalism. You have excelled in all areas. Thank you for making this expierence one I know my son will be able to proceed with confidence and a clear mind.

Barbara? Reynolds
Southview Medical Center, Unit: Surgery
Both the nurses I had on Fri Feb 23rd, were excellent. I was a little nervous because I have a history of seizures. The first nurse brought a nurse in while doing my IV to keep me side tracked and held a conversation with me because I told them last time I had blood drawn I had a seizure even though I have never had an issue with blood, IVs, etc.. My post op nurse was absolutely amazing. I had a couple seizures and a hard time waking up after surgery. She did not leave my side and was there for me to talk to while waking up and waiting for my husband to be allowed back. She even called him on the phone to try to help me wake up & come out of the seizures. This was by far the best experience in a hospital I have ever had. Everyone from registration to the doctor herself went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied & comfortable. They also explained everything that was going on each moment to me from the IV, the versed before the surgery, the tingly feeling I would experience while the medicine started to work, etc.. I hope I had the nurse's names right. I was beyond pleased and didn't feel like "just another person" They treated me like a family member. I would recommend Southview hospital to anyone!

They made us comfortable during dad's short stay in the ICU and made sure we had all of the information we needed to make informed decisions. My family could not imagine a different scenario in this situation and while it was an unexpected event with unexpected consequesces, we cannot envision it unfolding ay diffenently than it did. Thank you to all of the ICU staff who helped take care of dad and for all for your hugs, condolences and well wishes for te rest of the family. Sincerely, The Family of George Graef

First, I have to admit that I am a charter member of the "Grumpy Ole' Men's Club". She was great...She saw I was ready and taken care of for the procedure and after. Never seemed irritated and "fixed" whatever I had to undo. Will state you folks have patients there 2hrs ahead of the procedure...so we have at least 1 hour plus to sit with all those wires attached and be bored and uncomfortable. The problem is, the cheap beds you have do not allow for the patient to change position. That requires you get out of bed (after taking off the wires) and changing the beds position. She handled it with no indication of disapproval. And got me fed...she "done good" and it was appreciated.

Her name was Diana (aka Angel) who was serious about her job, caring and compassionate, made sure my every need was met with a positive attitude and I am so thankful God put her in my life. I had a pastor visit me one day and Diana was in the room and he was going to pray with me and my family and even as busy as she was she stopped held hands with us and participated in that prayer. She is one special Nurse that definitely deserves recognition and I’m sure her other patients would agree. Thank you Kettering for the exceptional care and the exceptional Nurse that cared for me and my family.

I want to thank you for take care of the hard time I faced to get delivered my first baby girl. As a nurse, you play a very important role in the health care system. Oftentimes, you might be the first interaction a patient has when they enter a hospital or clinic.

Dear Kayle, I would like to express my appreciation to be with me during the night of recovery. But even those who provide the most compassionate care can have bad days too. Some days may seem physically exhausting and emotionally draining, but you let these difficulties be outweighed by the satisfaction of knowing that you play a pivotal role in the healing process.

Dear RN Malory, I want to thank you for take care of the hard time I faced to get delivered my first baby girl.You are the caregivers, communicators, patient advocates and decision makers. You are the hand-holders, the voice-of-reason, the 3 a.m. vitals-checkers. You become the around-the-clock best friend by the bedside, the calming voice, the familiar face full of compassion. Best, Fatimah Alshehri

Kelly, My husband was your patient the week of Christmas. You were amazing. You were the most caring, professional, skilled nurse he had. The ED nurses were great so you had a lot to live up to. You achieved that. I was ill and was worried about him, but you eased my mind which allowed me to take care of myself and my son at home. Thank you so much. My husband is Robert Cooper Jr he was room #3305.
