This is for everyone working the day I brought my son in (march 24, 2017) My 5 month old son was wheezing and coughing and we started out at urgent care in the huber heights location. The nurse and doctor there decided better safe then sorry and sent him to the emergency room. Every single person we came in contact with was amazing, each making us feel special. This day I not only had my sick 5 month old but my other 2 small children as well. The nurse got them a box of goodies to keep them busy. A volunteer brought them cookies, even the radiologists came back with stickers for them. Everyone was very kind to me as well! Thank you all so much for making the visit easy on this momma!

Jen-Chi
Grandview Medical Center, Unit: Orthopedic
Jen-Chi took care of me and she was the best nurse I ever had not just at Grandview but anywhere. She was so nice and caring. She always came to check to make sure I was ok. She always checked to see if I was in pain and would give me medicine if I needed it. She was so good at putting my IV in when I was scared. The other nurses I had should learn from Jen-Chi. If I ever have to be in the hospital again I would come to Grandview but only if she could be my nurse. Please tell her thank you.

Lisa
Soin Medical Center, Unit: Med Surg 5
Hello, I had emergency surgery 2/23 and stayed in room 5505. There were two nurses I remember. One was from day shift and one was from night shift. Oh and the difference was night and day indeed. The nurse that took care of me at night was named Lisa. I have had multiple surgeries and dealt with multiple nurses. Lisa by far was the best nurse I have ever had the pleasure of watching over me. She had such a caring nature that it was if my own mom was taking care of me. I would think about how I wanted ice chips and in she would walk with them. She helped me up and got me walking. She always knew what I wanted and what I needed. She made me feel like I was her only patient. Other nurses should take cues from her. Then there was my day shift nurse who I met on 2/24 when I was to be discharged....nurse Diane. She was opposite indeed. I cannot believe she had two nursing students with her. She should not be training anyone. The nursing students had to point out that she should remove my old nicotine patch after applying a fresh one. They also had to remind her for my ice chips. She also proceeded to ask me if I was on anything for depression. I asked her "should I be?". Her response was "most people are happier after having their surgery done". Told her that maybe when I'm not in pain, I would be happier. Then she proceeded to tell me how it was done laparoscopic so its not like the pain level of surgery where they completely cut you open. Are you serious?? I had an organ removed. An organ that had been giving me pain for 2months because I had been misdiagnosed. Misdiagnosed originally by a doctor in the Soin ER. And you want to tell me that my pain isn't that bad and I should just throw on a happy face?? That was very inappropriate and not respectful of my personal pain. Then she proceeded to talk to me about how unhappy she was that I got prescribed the quantity of oxycodone that I did because they are addictive. She proceeded to show content over that and lecture me about possible addiction issues. Ok....I have had people I know die from addiction. Do NOT treat people as junkies. You do NOT know their past experiences and they don't appreciate your judging. She walked out of the room and my mom is like.....is she going to bring you a wheel chair for your check out? Told her....she made a comment about how red my hair was when she first walked in. I don't think she likes me so I wouldn't expect that chair. My mom went and found someone to help me get a chair to get checked out. Please also share with nurse Diane that it is one week since my surgery and I'm no longer in need of painkillers. Of the 40 prescribed....I have 17 leftover that have been disposed of. Night and day indeed is the nursing staff at Soin. Lisa made me feel cared for, safe, and in a nurturing environment. Diane made me feel unwelcome, judged, unliked, not taken care of at all. I do hope that in the future.....nursing students are trained to be more like the nurse Lisas of the world and not like the nurse Dianes.

JoJo
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: In. Rehab
Dear JoJo, From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for the wonderful care you have given to my father while he has been in inpatient rehab. It's difficult to articulate just how wonderful you have been with him. From the very beginning you have treated him with such loving care and respect. I remember coming to visit my dad on his second or third day in your unit. I read a note you had written to him on his white board that said "JoJo cares, Tom!" and it truly made my heart smile. See the thing is, for all intents and purposes, my dad is a tough guy; gruff and unemotional. But you have seemed to bring out a happiness and playfulness in him that I've frankly never seen. Which is truly remarkable and so fun to watch. Not to mention you are so attentive and helpful! How can I put into words the gratitude I feel knowing that he's cared for when you're on duty? Thank you, JoJo. I believe God put you on this earth to care for people. My best, Megan Redmond

Pat and Brittney
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: SICU
A month ago my mom Penny Pritchard was in the SICU. She had had a blood stroke on her brain stem and it was fatal. I don't remember some of what happened because it was devastating and it's still fresh, but I do remember three nurses especially that really stood out for me. One I don't remember her name at all because she was the last one there with me when my mother left this world. She had brown hair in a ponytail I think and she was incredibly intelligent and explained everything in a way we could understand. Another nurse, I think her name was brittney, she had blonde hair and she was there the first night and she was so compassionate. She explained everything to us so well even though our brains would lose the information the next day and we would ask again. The last nurse was Pat and I know that was her name. She was so gentle and thoughtful. She took excellent care of my mother and was so good to my family. Thank you all so much for taking such great care of my mother and for your kindness. Though I have forgotten most of your names, your kindness has not gone unnoticed.

On February 15, 2017, Ms. SuKira was assigned to room 2202. She is a Float Nurse and it was her first time on this floor and we were fortunate enough to have been assigned to her. On this night, my Grandmother passed away. SuKira was the kindest nurse that we could have ever hoped to have had on such an important night in our families' lives. She had the kindest soul and we were blessed to have her take care of our Grandmother. As SuKira is a float nurse, we must say that we are most appreciative that she "floated" our way. We will always remember her and her kindness.

I just want to thank Faith for an experience that will forever be with me. I can not thank everyone enough at Fort Hamilton for making me feel like family. I came in with an irregular heart beat and was pretty nervous about it. Faith was there to help me when I was broken. Faith calmly looked at me and said it is going to be okay we are here for you. I can not say enough about her generosity and passion for her work and the people around her. She truly lifted my spirits and made my stay more comfortable. When they say it takes a special person to be a nurse I would have to say that the statement is very true. Thank you Faith for everything I wish nothing but the best for you.

I cant remember everyone's names but I remember Amanda from the Special Care Nursery because her name is the same as mine. She took care of my baby boy when he stayed in the nursery.

I wish you guys could see him now :) I had a rough time with my blood pressure going up very high after having Linden.. I want to thank you all of you that took care of me while there on the 3rd floor. Every time I came to visit Linden you guys always asked how I was doing and was so kind.. I cant thank you enough for everything I am doing great and Linden is now 17 pounds and about to be 5 months old.. I would love to bring him for a short visit but I figured i wasn't aloud too...

Just want to say a grateful thank-you to Deanna Blevins in Wound Care Clinic for bringing this clinic to our attention. Deanna is a family member and we knew she worked in this unit but we were not familiar with the clinic. Our daughter Kathleen Blevins has had an ongoing medical problem with wounds that were not healing, Deanna told us about her unit, that it was very progressive in methods of treatments, and it would be helpful for Kathleen to be seen there. She is being treated there and they are a wonderful caring team of caregivers. Deanna on her own time comes to our home twice weekly to change the wound vacs for Kathleen, keeps us up-dated on on results of blood work and cultures, takes care of ordering needed home care supplies. We feel she has gone beyond the extra mile to see that our daughter has gotten the best of care. We want to recognize this and say thank- you so very much. Sincerely, Kathleen, Dennis, and Beverly BlevinsOMM

You were very attentive to my needs and made sure to tell me whenever you had to leave for any reason. You were excellent at calling for my family only when I wanted them, and were persistent with paging them multiple times when they mysteriously weren't arriving after being paged. I appreciate the high level of care and concern you gave me during the uncertain time of recovering from a major surgery. Kudos to YOU!

You did a stellar job at making sure I was as comfortable as possible during my extended wait for a room to open up. You were very attentive to me and my needs, and called for various family members when I was ready to see them. I enjoyed talking to you about life outside of the hospital, as well.

Just to name a few nurses that took such great care of me, Linda, (day shift) Rachel, (day shift) Jen Y., (night shift) Nikki (night shift) and I also wanted to thank Kevin in the Transportation Unit for having such a positive attitude and taking good care of me! What a fabulous hospital! Thanks again!

Chris has been my nurse's assistant several days and he does an outstanding job. He is prompt, courteous, and kind. He always asks if I am comfortable, doing okay, and if there is anything else I need before he leaves. He is a very hard worker and makes me feel respected. Thank you Chris for taking great care of me.

Brian - thank you so much for the excellent care you have given my dad following his stroke. My dad is the most independent, proud individual I know. A former police lieutenant, current prosecutor, and gun enthusiast - he's also one of the toughest men I know. Coming to grips with his limitations is and will continue to be a struggle for him. You have treated him with such respect and care; more importantly, you've helped him maintain his dignity! I can't thank you enough for that. I also really appreciate how well informed you have kept us throughout this process. Please keep up the outstanding work, Brian!

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!

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!

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

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Emergency
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

Fort Hamilton Hospital, Unit: 442
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.

SARA
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: CCU
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.
