Thank you,Milissa Smith for your compassionate care during my cancer journey. From the moment we met I knew that you were going to be an important member of my success team. You shared your knowledge and understanding of the whole process so I could find peace along the way. Dr. Lavelle was always honest and informative and you were always there to retell the important practical information. I’ve told all of my friends that you are the epitome of the best nurse ever! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your incredible care! Sincerely, Laura Grodrian

Even now, you are caring for Larry Hess, my stepfather. He fell in the shower, breaking ribs, and then tested positive to COVID-19 when he arrived. I know that he is receiving great care, and I want to thank you. May God keep you safe and healthy. May He lift the spirits of your staff and give them strength to endure this difficult time. May He pour down blessings and comfort to you and those you serve!

Thank you so very much for your kindness and compassion. It meant so much that you weren't there just to hand me meds and then move on to the next patient. And the day I was really really down...and I asked if they gave hugs here..You never hesitated to give me a hug and it meant the world to me. You deserve all the recognition available ... Helping the sick is a nurse title... being compassionate while doing it is a sign that shows you don't just care about the job...I'm important too... Thank you <3

Other, Unit: KBMC
I want to send a letter about Sheri Kaldor, she is amazing. It is often difficult to function as someone with a serious mental illness given all of the stigmas and anxiety. Sheri makes all of this go away!! I have known Sheri for 5+ years and she has always been excellent, she remembers my name each time I come in to KBMC for an appointment and always asks how I'm doing. During my time with KBMC she has helped me file for disability by helping get the letters and documents that I need. She recently helped with this again to verify I still need my disability income. She is amazing. Please see to it that she receives the credit she deserves! AE

Thank you Kim for your great care during my recent out-patient surgery. Your warmth, caring, expertise was greatly appreciated, especially during a stressful time. Except for a nasty post-op vertigo —- the scopolamine patch, and a nap worked wonders — I am doing quite well! Thank you for all you do everyday; nurses like you make a huge difference! Please thank the other nurses in your unit (Another nurse gave me a moist cloth for my neck; helped in my recovery as well). I wish I could thank each dr, nurse, tech, and transport for the kind words they shared with me during my brief stay. What a great team! You Rock - KHN Rocks! Stay well, Stay safe! Beth Talmadge

Thank you so much for your constant care, love, and support during the hospital stay after I delivered Hailey. Being our first baby, I was scared, overwhelmed, and surprised that we were all ready to go by the time we got to the hospital. You were so gentle and encouraging, and that really put me and my husband at ease even after the birth. Your humor helped me calm down despite feeling crappy with all the anemia going on requiring the blood transfusion. As a trauma survivor, from the bottom of my heart I mean it when I say that you made me feel strong, empowered, and safe during my stay, and I cannot thank you enough for that.

Kelly
Fort Hamilton Hospital, Unit:
Wish I could thank this nurse but her lack of care and responsibility and ABSOLUTE LAZINESS almost kill my grandmother. She let my grandma who was heavily medicated due to a hip fracture et food. as she was falling asleep and nodding off due to the medication, my grandma inhaled food and now has pneumonia and was transferred to the ICU. Also “narcan” was written on my grandmas board, and she tried to make up some lie that it was written for no reason, even as the other nurses questioned her. People like Kelly don’t deserve to work in the nursing profession. Very unprofessional and lack of compassion.

I just want to thank my nurse, Lisa who was with me during an extremely difficult D&C today. We lost our baby and it’s been an extremely long couple weeks. She made me feel comfortable and I felt like she really care for both me and my guy while we were in her care. I would love to do so much more for her than to send her these words if thanks. Nurses like her deserve so much more. Lisa, if you actually see this. Thank you. For everything. You made an extremely uncomfortable situation bearable and I know for a fact I wouldn’t have been able to get through today without your amazing care and support. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Your presence and ability to be present are wonderful gifts. Most importantly to us we felt heard by you, and that was so important. You seemed to end every conversation with a thank you. It was touching and showed that you were working with us and on our team. I hope that this note finds you well and that the good you’re putting out in the world is coming back to you every day. ??

Kris is a tech on this floor. I wish we could clone her and always have her for my SO’s frequent hospitalizations. On a busy floor I know as a nurse myself that it gets hectic and it’s always easy to just hurry and get things done. Kris takes the time to listen to family who know how to help their chronic pain loved ones to move with the least amount of pain. I’m not exaggerating when I say she was the one who cut down the residual pain he had left over from a move by 50 percent. It makes the difference between being able to go right back to sleep or suffering 30 minutes after the move. God bless you Kris. PATIENT NAME DAVID RICHISON. DOB 10/21/1952

Dear Nurse Adriana, I hope this note finds you well. I was a patient on your floor last week. I'd like to thank you for you kindness, compassion and professionalism. You truly were placed on this earth to be a Nurse. I was suffering mightily and so very close to giving up and in large part because of your care, I came out of the hospital with a new plan and determination. Without sounding cliche, you played an intricate role in saving my life. For someone so young, you demonstrate what an experienced Nurse should be. Again Adriana, thank you from the bottom of my heart. God placed you in my life last week for a reason. I firmly believe that God knew, that you knew, what I needed at that time. To be cared for medically and for someone to make "me" feel like life was worth fighting for. You are an Angel so dont ever change your Nursing "style" for anything or anyone. You are the best and I'm eternally grateful to you. God bless you and your family. With deepest regards, Brett Smith

I just wanted to send a huge thank you to Kayla. I had been in the hospital for a surgery when I met her on the surgery floor (I think she was working there that day). She was so amazing to have and so knowledgeable! A couple of weeks after I was discharged my husband was on the ICU not once but twice where Kayla took care of us there. She was always available to answer questions and always urged that I make sure to take care of myself despite being worried sick about my husband. I really appreciated not only the spectacular care that she gave my husband but also the care and concern she has for me and my family.

Even when I wasn’t feeling well he made me laugh, and made me feel much more comfortable given the circumstances. He walked me through my stay and kept me updated as we waited for a bed to open. Tristan seemed to enjoy his job, and with my recent hospital stays, he was one of the best nurses I had. Thank you Tristan for sticking with me during my admission in the ER.

My family and I would like to express our appreciation to Mr. James. He was so friendly, accommodating and helpful. He made my father's stay very great despite being in pain and discomfort. Employees like James are what make patients feel happy and well taken care of!

I want to thank everyone that took care of my mother, Juanita Arnett, during her recent admission at the Troy location. Due to work obligations and the weather I was unable to be there when my mother was admitted. Courtney was wonderful about providing me with information and made me comfortable knowing my mother was being well taken care of. Thank you again, Kim Plants

Marilee, I can't thank you enough for the care and attention you gave me last June. You showed such care and compassion for my well being. You knew when something was wrong even when I didn't. You saved my life along with Dr. Peterson. You kept me laughing through some of the scariest few days of my life. You came and checked on me and encouraged me even when I wasnt a patient of yours anymore. The entire labor and delivery team was Phenomenal, but I will never forget you. Thank you just doesn't seem enough!

Jaime, When my son was admitted to the special care nursery last June we were all so scared. You cared for him like he was one of your own children. You were patient when teaching us how to care for him. You took the time to come to my room when I couldn't be with him so I could watch you feed him his first bottle. You were always so kind and gentle with him and patient with us. Thank you for everything you did for him and us! He is now 17lbs and healthy! You're entire team in special care helped get him to where he is today but we will never forget the special care and time you gave to him and us. thank you!

I was recently in for an angiogram at Kettering Hospital and my nurse Courtney was absolutely awesome. He care was outstanding and she truly cared about me and how I felt. I had a rough IV go of it and Courtney made sure I was well taken care of. Also the other nurses that helped, I wish I knew all of their names, were also fantastic. The Pic nurses and other nurses from the floor that helped were helpful and caring. Great job to the staff and especially Courtney for such great care of me during my short stay.

When I was admitted into ICU, I sent my husband home to get some clothes, phone chargers, etc. I didn’t realize at the time they were about to do a procedure to put a pigtail port in my neck for dialysis, so he was gone and I was alone. It was incredibly painful and honestly really scary. I wish I had gotten her name, but there was a nurse (who I think was just about to get off work in ICU) who came in and helped while the doc put the port in my neck. I had to have a blanket over my face to keep everything sterile and I was under the blanket crying to myself and trying to hide it. Without missing a beat she grabbed and held my hand while I had to go through it so I wasn’t alone. It was Christmas night, I was alone, scared, in pain and away from home and my family... but in that moment, just her holding my hand and supporting me made a WORLD of difference.

Sycamore Medical Center, Unit: 2nd Floor
I was admitted into ICU with renal failure (which was a huge shock) and I had multiple issues and complications. I am a wife and mother of four and to be hospitalized away from my family around the holidays was really tough. Rayna made it SO much better. By the time I was released I felt like she was a friend. To be so positive, upbeat, helpful, on top of things, empathetic, and genuinely concerned about her patients... I have sung her praises to everyone who would listen. Rayna for president.

Sycamore Medical Center, Unit: 2nd floor
One of the nights during my hospital stay was really rough. Brittany came in as the day nurse and as soon as she came in and I told her about my bad night, she jumped right on it to make sure I was okay and taken care of. She went above and beyond and really made me feel comforted. I had to have surgery so I was having to fast and incredibly thirsty. When I got out of surgery she had a huge water for me waiting and she had written on the cup “Welcome Back!!” . It was the kindest, most thoughtful gesture. Brittany you’re awesome. Thank you!

Bill was FANTASTIC. I was struggling while I was in ICU and Bill kept me informed about everything going on. He was so friendly, really cared about how I was, and knew that in order for me to be able to relax a little I just need to know what’s going on and he made sure to keep me informed on everything. Bill you are awesome and I thank you so much for your extra effort!!

Thank You to the Drs, Nurses and Staff for saving my father's life when he was turned away and totally disregarded at Sycamore Medical Center Emergency. If it had not been for your immediate actions, admitting and performing emergency heart surgery, he would have been dead! I Thank God for YOU ALL!!!!

Thank you for being such an amazing nurse during one of the most difficult times in my life. Miscarriage is scary and utterly heart breaking. Your kindness while prepping me for my D&C was amazing. I am so grateful to have had you as my nurse that day. You went above and beyond. You put my mind at ease. I had never been under anesthesia before and your calm and kind demeanor made me feel like everything was going to be just fine. You truly are an asset to the hospital. Everyone deserves to have a nurse as wonderful as you were to me that day! Thank you so much!

I have never had a more attentive, through, thoughtful, helpful, communicative, informative, supportive, interesting and caring nurse. From the time he checked me in, to personally taking me downstairs and waiting with me for my son to pick me up, he couldn't have been nicer. I was cared for as never before. He kept me posted every step of the way. I'd like him to know how grateful I am to him and for you to know what a gem you have in your unit.

Thank you for being the excellent nurse and person you are! Me & Mattea greatly appreciate you!!
