Janet
Southview Medical Center, Unit: Maternity
Our stay at the hospital was all around amazing, the staff was so attentive and caring. We felt very confident in the care I and my baby were getting. I do have to say that Janet made a huge impact during our stay in the hospital. Her caring, friendly and attentive demeanor helped us relax and enjoy the arrival of our little bundle of joy. I cannot leave out Nicole and Erica as they too rendered excellent care to us. I do not have enough words to thank all the staff from the cleaning service to the doctors that delivered Rachel. You have all made this delivery surpass my previous experience at a different hospital. Thank you again for all you do!! You all do it so well!! Best Regards, The Cooney Family.

Judy Thank you for all of your help an assistance after Raegan's Birth! Kristen is so very lucky to have had YOU to help her and teach her. I wish everyone were like you, but unfortunately not all folks have the same love in their heart, the same dedication to the job. From the entire family, we thank you. We cannot express enough how fortunate we were to have you as the Tech that cared for both momma and baby. Keep up the good work! Lots of love and thanks, Auntie Lisa

Fort Hamilton Hospital, Unit: IMC
I would like thank Jackie for being a compassionate, honest, sincere and genuinely great nurse and person.! She made me feel very comfortable and helped me more than I could ever expect. She was an angel in disguise. She even came to visit me on her day off, to just check on me. She is a wonderful, sincere, genuine person. If there was more people like her, the world be such a better place. I can not say enough good things about her! She deserves to be honored and learned from.

Janet was the best today! Allie is scared to death of needles and was really nervous before her surgery today. Janet came in and was so patient and kind. She help put Allie at easy and made sure she was comfortable. It was the first time she sat still and didn't cry getting an iv! Janet was so understanding that a 17 year old was scared. Thank you Janet from the bottom of my heart for taking such good care of my baby today.

Dixie Kirkland
Grandview Medical Center, Unit: EMS Cord.
Dixie, Congratulations on your well deserved retirement. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend tour retirement celebration. Your devotion to your calling has not gone unnoticed. You have made a profound impact on EMS service throughout the Miami Valley. Between your countless hours of outreach EMS education and the one on one mentoring you provided so many in the ER you have molded some of the finest EMTs and paramedics in the Miami Valley. Your presence in the EMS community will be deeply missed. Personally you are one of the fondest memories I have from my paramedic training days. You were always willing to teach the tricks of the trade, from the simplest of skills to compassion and empathy, the stuff that could never be taught or learned in the classroom. Those are the things that made us better paramedics. Thank you for everything that you taught me and being a friend. May you have a long and joyful retirement. Sincerely, Scott Dorsten Beavercreek Fire Department

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Thoracic
This nurse was weird and rude.She asked to go to the bathroom and he said "you mean the restroom" She stood up and he told her he didn't tell her to stand , so he made her sit down and then wait until he told her to stand. I think this guy has some kind of control complex. Her daughter Laura Thornhill

The Lemon family would like to thank the wonderful nurses and staff of the SICU for the excellent care they provided for my mother, Mary Lemon, who was a "frequent flier" that passed away on the unit June 15th after a difficult battle with a glioblastoma, and for the equally good care they took of her husband, Mike, and her sons, Jeremy and Alex. While we would love to thank each of you individually by name, we did not have the forethought to write everyone's names down, but special thanks to Erin, Florence, Kelsey, Christina, Pat, and Linda. Your unit is a special one! Best Regards, Mike, Jeremy, and Alex Lemon

I brought my boyfriend into the ER Thursday evening (6/22) with an injury to the head. Nora (RN) and the team who helped us (Robert- PA & Andrea) were great! It looked like it was an extremely busy day in the ER and they were just extremely accommodating and made us feel comfortable the entire visit. We just wanted to take a moment and say THANK YOU!!

Thank you to ALL the nurses who helped us out when we had our son on June 7 at 3:24am (John Shie is my doctor). We had some issues with the baby's heart rate dropping. Everyone was SUPER nice and helpful. I was comfortable the whole time I was there. We had our first child at Kettering 10 years ago, I wouldn't go to another hospital. Thank you to every single one of the nurses...in Labor and Delivery and Maternity units. My fiance was very impressed with everyone, especially in L&D. I wish I could give you all a big hug. Thank you again... Kellie Knott, Steve Sloan, baby Lucas Isaac & big sis Brenna.

I want to thank all of the staff at the Southview Infusion Center for the amazing work they do at making patients feel not only as comfortable as possible, but also like family. They are very professional in their skills but also go the extra mile to communicate that they really care about their clients. It is also apparent that they have great team spirit and a great leader in Rebecca. I commend all of them for everything they do to promote Kettering's mission and values!

Kirstie
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: L&D
I arrived at Labor and Delivery with back to back contractions, dialated to 8 cm, and in the worst pain I've ever felt. I was scared and miserable, but Kirstie helped me pull it together and turn my situation into a beautiful birth experience. I delivered my baby barely and hour after arriving at the hospital. I honestly don't think I could have done it without Kirstie's support. She was amazing. She explained everything to me and was honest about what was going to happen next. I could go on and on about how she enhanced my experience. In my experience, ALL the nurses I came into contact with at Kettering Hospital were great, but Kirstie has that special something that I wish all patients could experience. A million thanks to Kirstie. You made an impression on my whole family that will never be forgotten. Keep up the excellent work.

Thank you so much for the concern and care you gave me when I broke my kneecap. This was the 3rd doctor /hospital we had been to. And you guys did not just act like it was no big deal. I finally got the care I needed and proper referrals. I have been off work for almost 8 months and had 2 surgeries and months of physical therapy. The first ED sent me home and said it would heal on its own. Fort Hamilton ED is the best care anywhere!

Catelyn
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Labor
Our family would like to thank Catelyn for her care for us on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday May 22. I was induced, but as time went on and our baby's heart rate repeatedly dropped, Catelyn and the team of nurses in labor and delivery on May 21 & 22 worked together to stabilize the situation. At one point, Catelyn rushed in with several nurses and broke my water to help the baby's heart rate go back up. The care I received was remarkable; it’s obvious that she is passionate about her work. I felt confident in her ability to keep both my baby and me safe during what was a frightening time for us. Even though we finished in the operating room for an unplanned c-section instead of our hope for a vaginal delivery, I know that the nurses did everything they could to help us have a healthy baby girl. I will forever be grateful for the work Catelyn and her colleagues did in those two days.

Our family would like to thank Melinda for her care for us on Saturday, May 21. I was induced, and Melinda was the nurse who place the cervidil and answered our questions about how the process would work. She was gentle, patient, and understanding. It's obvious that she is passionate about nursing; she was beyond competent. I knew I was in capable and caring hands with Melinda.

Jamie is the nurse who worked with Dr. Mirau to get us to the operating room and stayed with us throughout the surgery. I will forever be grateful for the work she and her colleagues did in those two days.

Southview Medical Center, Unit: ICU
To the ICU nurses of Southview Medical Center: On April 8, 2017, by husband, an ER nurse, was brought in to your unit. He was completely brain dead after suffering what we believe to be an accidental drug overdose. It has taken me some time to gather the words to write this letter, but I want you to know how much your words and strength meant to me. This entire situation caught me 100% off guard. I had no clue that there was any sort of drug use going on. You were all extremely compassionate, caring, and took your time to listen to me share feelings and memories as they came upon me. This was not your burden to bear, and honestly I know you had other patients that also needed you. But when you came in to care for my husband, you made me feel equally as important. You made certain there was a cart there with beverages and food for myself and other family. You always asked if we needed anything, made certain to call in the chaplains when we asked. Though I do not remember each of your names (Jen, Jenny, and ? (male nurse who worked days that also was an Army nurse?) your faces will always be in my mind. You each went above and beyond to make certain that I was cared for, despite me not even being the patient, and that my husband was cared for with dignity and respect. Please accept my thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will pray for each of you that you continue to do the amazing work you do and touch people's lives each and every day.

Thank you so much for taking such awesome care of our dad today! The way you talked to him and explained what you were doing even though he might not have been able to hear you, just showed how much you genuinely care for him and probably reflects how you treat all of your patients. We are also very appreciative of the few extra minutes you took to explain to us what was going on with our dad's treatment. Thank you for providing the best care out there!

She had a great attitude and knowledge of the job she does!

I was at soin a couple weeks ago because of high blood pressure. I want to thank you for your hard work and bedside manner. Going to the hospital at anytime can be scary and even more so when you're pregnant. Your demeanor instantly started to calm me down. Your knowledge and bedside manner was just top notch. I felt very informed and calm throughout my entire stay. I know you were probably very busy with other patients or things needing done, but I constantly felt like I was a priority whenever you came in the room and listened to every concern I had. Thank you again so much. Leah, Cody, and baby Harrison Trebil

I worked with Kathy over 11 years on ACU at Grandview. She decided to slow things down in her career and accepted a position at Dr. Zapf's Office in 2012. There wasn't anything Kathy wouldn't assist her co-workers with doing. She was a prime example of what a charge nurse on an unit should be. Caring, passionate, and very hard working. Plus, she trained me when I started with the Grandview Family in 2001. Kathy was the type of nurse that a person would stride to be.

I wanted to thank all of the great nurses and nursing assistants that have given my mother outstanding care. She has had nothing but great things to say about everyone and everything with this hospital stay. It is not easy at 80 to have this kind of major surgery and then to go through the recovery. She has mentioned several times how respectful everyone has been, hoe good the food was, and how nice everyone has been. I also want to thank the physical therapists, dietary ambassadors, environmental services and physicians that helped her. Everyone on her care team has been wonderful.

You went out of your way to make me feel comfortable about her being in the special care nursery. I really couldn't ask for a more caring nurse. Emberley is doing well since she's been home she has finally calmed down and is sleeping great. She eats 4.5 ounces which seems like ALOT to me but that's what she wants! Again thank you so much for everything and tell Sherry I said hi. You guys are amazing. Thanks, Katie

It's amazing to run across someone who's so sweet and caring, you'd come in and talk to me in the middle of the night when I was feeding her and it was great to have someone to talk to and you would practically beg me to get some sleep every night you were there. I actually remember saying "I'll get some sleep tonight Sherry is gonna be here" I trusted you with my daughter and that's rare for me to do. We finally got her home and I said that I wished I knew your email so you could babysit! Haha but really you are great at your job! Rare to find people like you. Katie

I just want to say "Thank you" to my amazing future wife. She has been a Pediatric ICU RN as long as I have known her. She has rough nights, long nights. She deals with children & their families, in situations most people could ever imagine. What amazes me isn't that's She's a nurse. It isn't that she comes home exhausted, with a smile and ready for the next day. Even when I know, a patient of hers may of taken their last breath. She comes home at times with a look I wish I could take away, the pain in her eyes.. she just looks at me, I hug her as she cries. She amazes me daily. Applying for her NP, working at Two main PICUs in our county. I'm so proud to marry this woman in July. All nurses are wonderful, I just think mine, is extra special.

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 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.

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. 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...

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 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!

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.

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.

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.
