Thanks for being the most amazing nurse anyone could ask for. Your impact, as well as KHN, will never be forgotten and always be appreciated. You are a tremendous asset to this hospital and I don't know how they would function without you. I wish you all the best and thank you for being such an incredible nurse and person.

Amanda and everyone in the Special Care Nursery
Fort Hamilton Hospital, Unit: Nursery
Amanda and all the nurses up on the maternity floor that helped or assisted me, I had a much longer stay then I wanted and I had many of you. Some I member are Calen, Anna and many others. 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. He was born at 34 weeks. Everyone that took care of my baby Linden thank you so much it means so much. 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... I had Linden 9/20/16. not sure if you all will remember me or not but had to tell all of you Thank you all Much Love Amanda Morgan

Candice was a big help to me my first night on 4 Main she calmed me down and talked me into taking a sleep aid so I would rest and she made me feel safe and comfortable she told me she would watch my boyfriend Corey to make sure he didn't have a seizure while I slept and was so nice I got much needed rest and woke up and had a new nurse so I never got to thank her...

On 02/07/2017 I believe we honestly met the greatest nurse ever. I have been to many hospital over the years and have never in my life met such a wonder young nurse/lady. Emily you went to great lengths to make Chelsie and the family feel so special. The concern and respect that you showed to Chelsie was the greatest. You are a wonderful nurse and person. (As Chelsie would say " bitch you are the shit).... Thanks for all that you did and for making this experience for Chelsie the most rememberable ever.. Julie, Tesla, and Chelsie

Fort Hamilton Hospital, Unit: Wound
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

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Recovery
Gail, You were the first face I saw when I came out of anesthesia from a major surgery on Wednesday, 02/01/17. 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!

Diana, You made the Recovery experience from a major surgery as great as it could be! I believe you mentioned you are usually on a different floor, as a Float Nurse. 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. I appreciate the outstanding level of care you gave me after my major surgery on Wednesday, 02/01/17. THANK YOU!

PJ, Thank you so much for helping to make the "Surgery Prep" experience a great one! I was going in for a major surgery, and you helped me to be as relaxed as possible. I enjoyed the "Mackinac Island $8.50" story you told us. That very much helped to lighten the mood going in to my surgery on Wednesday, 02/01/17.

I had surgery on 2/2/17 @ Kettering Medical Center. EVERYONE, from the person at the surgery check in desk to the guy that wheeled me out to the car after surgery and absolutely everyone I had contact with in between was wonderful! I would like to send a special thank you to the nurse that was with me after the recovery room and helped me get ready to go home. She was very comforting and made me feel very relaxed. I have never had a bad experience with anyone at Kettering.

I was just recently discharged after spending 5 days in the hospital. My room was on 5 Main. I can't say enough about the nurses and staff on 5 Main. I wanted to thank all of you for making my stay as comfortable as possible and for the excellent care all of you gave me! All of the nurses in this unit were hard working and showed their dedication daily. This hospital as a whole was excellent! Every single staff member I came in contact with was excellent! Everyone worked together as a team and took great care of each patient. I can't thank all of you enough! Kudos to the nurses and staff on 5 Main! 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!

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!

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

Joyce
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

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.

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.
