I was in for a stent procedure on 3/20/2018 and carried over until my release on 3/21. Garrett was my overnight nurse and he did a good job of taking care of me. He was prompt in his attention to my needs, was helpful in explaining any of my questions. He insured my comfort as well as can be expected when in the hospital. He was friendly and courteous as well. He deserves kudos for a job well done. Thanks, Dave

i was in on 3/20/18 for a stent surgery. Brittany was especially helpful. She was pleasant, courteous, and prompt to assist me after the procedure, including the next day until my release on 3/21. She showed genuine concern for my comfort and well being. She was sympathetic to my concerns, explained any questions that I had, and showed me that she was a caring and helpful person who liked helping others. She deserves kudos for a job well done. Thank you. Dave

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: 3South3105
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!

Megan Davis
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: CCU
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.

Blonde Laura
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

3 Lazy Bitches that are rude and don't do their jobs
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Floor 5
The 3 lazy rude bitches that dont want to do their jobs work on the 5th floor on third shift. Heavy set ladies oh and another is a red head. They let patients lay for hours, dont clean up their food trays, wont even feed a patient that cant feed themselves, let's monitors beep excessively, cant clean up a patient they need to be dealt with accordingly. If you dont like working with the public then why do it.

Becky, Thank you so much for all of your help after my delivery. You are such a wonderful nurse and Matt and I could tell that you really do care about your patients. You made us feel very comfortable in the hospital and answered all of our questions and concerns. Little Elijah is doing great at home, we are having a great time breastfeeding and pumping. We had our first pediatrician appointment and he is completely healthy and right on track with his weight. We miss you! I have nothing but good words to say about you, I really enjoyed my experience at Soin.

Katie
Grandview Medical Center, Unit: Emergency
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.

This week I had a 3d mammogram,ultrasound and needle biopsy. I have an EXTREME fear of medical procedures. I would like to thank Chris-the technician who notified the person in charge of scheduling that I was stressed, Angela- the person who managed to pull strings and schedule me the following day for the biopsy-Judy and Tracey -the nurses who were with me during the biopsy. It's very difficult to put into words how appreciative I am of their loving kindness,warm blankets, words of encouragement, and many other thoughtful gestures. I pray thanks for all of you. Kettering Network is fortunate to have such compassionate employees!

On 03/20 I was with my partner, who came into the ED at Grandview after Good Sam ED told her it would be a 3 hour wait to be seen. By the time she went back to a room, she was extremely uncomfortable due to her condition. Daniel, her nurse until about midnight, was attentive, caring, and did everything he could to make her feel as comfortable as possible despite the very busy night he was having. Thank you for making my loved one feel cared for during such a stressful time!

My father Earl Davis has been in Icu unit for a week now. Ms Whithead has been a wonderful nurse to my father. My father can't communicate but she has been very caring to my father. She is a gentle nurse, takes care with the family and answers questions and makes you feel reassured. You can tell with Ms Whithead that she takes her job to heart. I feel that your hospital needs more nurses like Ms Whihead and with what she has done for my father needs a medal!

Hi Whitney, I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful treatment you gave my brother Donald Poehnert who suffered a brain injury after an insulin OD. You treated my brother with the utmost respect when you were taking care of him and I will forever be grateful. When you would move him or give him any type of medication you used his name and talked to him as if you knew he could hear you. There were other nurses that were not so compassionate. I felt that your treatment of my brother should be mentioned so again Thank you for what you do.

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!

A million thanks to all of the nursing staff of GMH - ICU (all shifts) for the wonderful care they gave my father, George Graef ( aka the Wheelchair Man) during his stay in ICU this past January. Not only did they give dad exemplary care, they also treated the rest of our family with respect and compassion during dad's stay in the ICU. In fact, they treated us like family. 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

Ronnie
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Cath Lab
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.

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: 2nd floor
I am writing this note to nominate Diana Hollen for the Gold Star nursing award. I have been a patient at kettering Medical Center multiple times but my last admission was on an emergency basis and required a major surgery which was traumatic in itself but thankfully I was taken to the Second floor room 2110 and was greeted by the most beautiful smile and the best personality that gave me the sense of comfort and safety. 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.

Other, Unit: Long Term
Martha, thank you for taking my call and relaying news about our Dad Art Allen to my brother Jim. Thanks too for being so understanding of the serious nature of the news and Jim's emotional sensitivity. Our family is so very careful about how we approach Jim on any subject so as not to upset him. Our dad remains at Sycamore Medical Center but may soon be released to go to a rehab program. His first choice will be Sycamore Glen. He has visited Jim there many times and is comfortable with the facility. Dad also longs to be able to visit with Jim more frequently. We'll keep praying and wait to see what the future holds for each of them. God bless you, Martha for all that you do . . . Best regards, Becky Miller justwrite@charter.net Cell: 931-787-9121 Alternate Cell: 931-372-0819

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 Jennifer, We would like to thank you for make the deliver of our first baby easier for us. Nursing is a cognitively demanding profession where the task of care-taking is a rewarding challenge. Nurses go through some of the most intimate moments with people from all walks of life, and it is from these experiences that one develops an altruism towards humankind.ar Jennifer,

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.

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.
