LIZ, I wanted to thank you for from the bottom of my heart for trying to help my dad, Michael Hathaway. He sure is a fighter and it is rare for him to admit he is not feeling well. So, when he does and I call you then you jump to fix it. I can not thank you enough. You have a calm demeanor and that is helpful because ALL of this is super scary. I think you are an asset to Kettering Cancer Care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You rock . Sincerely, Heather Lewis on behalf of Michael Hathaway 04/18/1945

I came into Soin ER a couple weeks ago with Sepis. I was hot, sweaty, and confused. I was quickly transferred to the ICU. I was a mess. Hope, RN,gave the care I needed in a kind, professional, and helpful way that speaks to the excellent training, skill, and compassion she possesses. She was also reassuring to my wife and family who were worried about my health. I want to thank Hope for her superior nursing care.

Hello, My name is Tony Malone and I’m a Paramedic with Buckeye. We had a transfer out of Sycamore ED to KMC on Saturday evening of August 10th. Morgan did a phenomenal job in helping us with a difficult ALS patient. I could go into details, but it is not necessary. Simply put, it was a mix of equipment issues and a very distressed patient. Morgan stayed with us the entire time to see that our needs and the patient’s needs were met and she never lost her cool. The staff in the ED is always great to us, but this evening Morgan really displayed the “Team Effort” concept. Thanks, Tony

Jen
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: L&D
As a first time mom and a first time patient, I had no idea how much I would depend on my nurses for support. All the nursing staff were amazing, however I wanted to call specific attention to Nurse Jen who was assigned to me during my active labor in L&D on Tuesday July 16th, day shift. Wow, just wow. She was beyond exceptional in every way. From her calm and supportive demeanor, to her well rounded considerations of my needs. She anticipated care that I didn't even know I needed. She served as educator, motivator, support person and advocate and I believe - single handedly - made all the difference. Thank you, Jen, for making my experience at KMC perfect as could be. Jenn, Matt & Baby Parker Elkins

I had spine surgery on the morning of June 3rd and then in room 5520. I just want all my nurses- I am so sorry I don’t have all their names (drugs will do that to you)-to know just how wonderful they truly are! I know I talked to Jacob about his wedding and talked a lot to Abby. They took such great care of me. I appreciate them so much. Also the physical therapist was great. I am sure I gave them a giggle about the ants on the ceiling that were really screws. Everyone I came in contact with was just perfect. They made a very uncomfortable situation bearable. Thank you??

Angie i believe you are hands-down one of the BEST nurses I had at Kettering Medical Center. thank you for your kindness and patience. I do believe and  think you were definitely born to be a nurse and are very good at what you do. She went above and beyond with my husband and myself. She answered any question I had, to making sure we both were taken care of during our stay. She made a special connection with my husband and myself.  She helped myself remain positive throughout all the challenging moments during my husband latest hospital stay.       She showed great interpersonal skills such as listening to all my concerns, to great teamwork with coworkers. Overall she is a wonderful nurse through and through. If I ever have to be hospitalized I honestly hope I get her or some who shares the same skills and enthusiasm for their job!  I will never forget the kidness exhibited by Angie. She truly made a difference in my life.

Marilee Varney
Southview Medical Center, Unit: Labor and
I just want to say she is hands-down the BEST nurse I had at Southview. She was my nurse when my daughter was born, and she kept the mood up and was always so cheerful. When I had my second child my experience was less than pleasant with my L&D nurse and Marilee came in and helped me push through the pain when my nurse wasn't being very encouraging or nice. I love her to death. She remembered my daughter when I was in labor with my son and in the future (if I have any more babies LOL) I would request her time and time again for my L&D nurse. She is the most hospitable, caring nurse I have ever met. I hope she's doing well??

I wanted to thank Kim, and the other nurses who work with her in Radiology specifically with the MRI scans. I have had quite a few MRI scans at this location, and have had Kim every time. Kim and her team are ALWAYS on time, ALWAYS professional and courteaous, ALWAYS knowledgeable and efficient, and ALWAYS make me feel like a priority when I am there for my scans. For me, this is customer service at it's very BEST! Thank you Kim for being amazing! You make this otherwise nerve wracking procedure (for me) a breeze, and I'm so thankful!

Landon
Grandview Medical Center, Unit: CVMU - 5th
Dear Landon, I wanted to take time on behalf of my family to thank you for the OUTSTANDING care you gave my father after he got to your unit, from experiencing a stroke. You guys were short staffed during the weekend and we understood how busy you were, but you never hesitated to help us when we needed it, with a smile. Furthermore, you went above and beyond to help my father take his first steps after his stroke. You found out that rehab was not able to come help my father that day and you made the choice to stay after your shift to help him. As you stated, you would want that care to be given to your own family member. By doing that, you made my father, and family so happy and hopeful for a good recovery. You also made "squeeze balls" for his hands out of ace bandages when you could not obtain any from PT. Your efforts were above and beyond the usual call of duty and extremely appreciated. Thank you for the EXCELLENT care you provided...any patient who gets taken care by you is extremely lucky! Best wishes to you!

Chad
Grandview Medical Center, Unit: SICU
Dear Chad, My dad, Minh, came to your unit on late May 9/ early May 10 with a hemorrhagic stroke. I spoke to you on the phone as I was in Texas at that time, frantically worried for my father's condition. I appreciate you taking the time to speak to me during that time of admitting my dad, as I know that's a hectic time to try and juggle family on top of a critical patient. I appreciate your calm demeanor and your explanation of what was going and what to expect. Furthermore, my mother expressed her extreme gratitude of your constant care during the night. She and I believe without your diligence in taking care of my father, he might not have had the best outcome. I know you were following orders/protocol, but I also know some nurses may be more laxed about it than others. My mother stated you were on top of everything and provided the best care and concern to both her and my father. THANK YOU for being there for her and for him. Thank you for doing an EXCELLENT job. Thank you for what you do and all that you do. We are grateful for your excellent care during a critical time of his physical life. I wish you could see him now...he's in rehab, but recovering very well. Thank you again. I wish you all the best :)

All of my nurses on the delivery side of maternity went above and beyond. Making sure all my needs were met. Doing there best to ease my anxiety. Helping me get comfortable. Being a listening ear. They truly went above and beyond. One nurse I can remember is Casey, she was amazing holding my hand through my epidural coaching me through it and just being very nurturing and supportive! I also remember Jen who helped deliver my daughter, she also provided great care and was extremely helpful with coaching me to push. The delivery side of Kettering blew me away and made my child birth Experience amazing, along with Dr. McCluskey. So blessed and thankful.

Rachel
Southview Medical Center, Unit: Maternity
We would like to give special thanks to our nurse Rachel for the outstanding level of care she provided us during our stay. We met her shortly after our check in Friday, 10 May 2019, and had her that night as well as the following evening. She was extremely friendly and made us feel comfortable immediately upon meeting her in the beginning of her shirt. She went above and beyond making us feel at-home during such a emotional time of our lives, and treated us more like family. She was very professional when the moment called for it and proved she was knowledgeable in every area of her job. She explained everything to us in a manner we flawlessly understood and went above and beyond in all her duties. Upon having to deliver via emergency c-section, Rachel stayed with us and talked us through the process, as well as helped us stay calm as we were both scared. We are exceptionally thankful for having Rachel as our nurse for our first two days and were sad we didn’t get to see her again. No amount of words can describe how thankful we are for our care we received from the entirety of the Southview staff, but would love for Rachel in particularly to know how amazing she was. Thank you Southview, and thank you Rachel!

I was in on Thursday, May 9th, 2019 for rotator cuff surgery. Cory and Sarah were the most caring and considerate nurses I have ever met. They were professionals when they needed to be and fun when it was appropriate. If everyone in the medical profession was as wonderful as these two, people, people would invent illnesses just to see them. I want to send my most grateful appreciation for two amazing professional nurses. You are two wonderful ladies and Kettering is lucky to have you. Thank you Ron Richardson

Greene Memorial Hospital, Unit: Er
On two occasions I had the misfortune of ending up in the emergency department for support of others. When my close friend fractured his occipital bone the older male nurse that was working helped keep us all calm and even though my friends temp wasn’t registering he did not fret in the least as he placed heated blankets on him and a heat light over him. It wasn’t until later that I realized that his body temp had dropped too low. On a separate night I was awoken in the wee hours of the morning by my mother letting me know that my grandfather was passing. I hurried to Greene as fast as I could and upon arrival was met at the entrance to grandpa room by the same male nurse. He explained the state of his body before we went in so I wouldn’t be shocked. I still was however as I couldn’t process he was already gone. He let me be to talk to him as he took my daughter away to allow her to cry. He simply sat with her and that was the kindest thing I never could have asked for. He deserves recognition as he carries himself every day with grace and wisdom. Nurses like him are why I’m going into the field myself. Thank you, more than words can express.

Brittany was my night shift nurse and Erin was my daytime nurse. They were hands down the BEST nurses I could ever ask for. They helped me when I needed it and also went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and everyone was happy. They also made conversation and were very easy to talk to! With my first, I didn’t get along with the nurses so I was a little nervous, but they were absolutely awesome. I have ZERO complaints about them. Everyone that came and visited even said how nice they were! Thank you so much Erin and Brittany!

He was there for my worst day prior to surgery, answered questions throughout my stay, and was just overall kind! Any time I found out Jim was on duty for the day I knew it would be a great day - no mater how miserable I was. Jim’s care was unmatched and I will be forever grateful for him.

My whole stay at Sycamore was great, but I especially remember Zoe! She is a young, bubbly nurse who always has a beautiful smile on her face. She went above and beyond to attend to my needs. I did not have to use my call light once, because she checked on me often, even though she had 6 patients that night. She is really sweet, attentive and compassionate. She offered to pray with me because she could tell I was nervous about my upcoming procedure. Even though I only had her once, I’ll never forget how caring she is. So thank you Zoe! You are an amazing nurse and you are going to bless everyone you meet and serve with your bright smile & personality!

You were super friendly and caring and as someone who has been in the hospital 5 times for having babies you were by far one of the few nurses that were caring and didn't make me feel like I was a burden. I am hoping to become an RN in the near future and hope that I am half as caring as you were. Thank you again so much.

My Dad has had several hospitalizations over the past several years. SOIN by far been the best experience. Last week Ashlee (PCT) and the student nurse Tess took care of his personal needs. They went above and beyond to show compassion and care with him. My family really appreciates knowing he is receiving such great care!

Amy was my main nurse while I was in for cardiac catheterization. She was unable to prep me because she had other duties that demanded her attention at that time, but she more than made up for that while I was recovering and took care of my needs with outstanding diligence and, I thought, personal concern. She was a delight to be with and a strong support in a trying time.

I had suffered from a very painful chronic bowel obstruction condition resulting in over a dozen hospital admissions since 2001. The surgical. team of Dr. Andersen is confident that my condition has been cured by the surgery. My care during my many admissions has been superb and particularly by the Nurses, Nurses Assistants and Staff of 2 North during my last admission. Even though there were certainly many more, I want to thank Nurses Roberta, Zack, Melissa, Monica, Cathy for their sympathetic and caring support during my stay and recovery.

I was admitted into the emergency room at approximately 4:30 pm on 1/28/19. I was suffering greatly from impacted bowels but the nursing staff ministered my care professionally and with humor trying to calm my agitated state. My bowels are now clear and I'm feeling much better. I owe my great results to the excellent care I received from physicians and nurses from your emergency trauma center. I especially wish to thank the nurse who so pleasantly cleaned me up after my bowels finally broke loose at 3:00 this morning. She was such a sweet gentle lady. I kept apologizing for causing her extra work and she told me she loved her job and loved helping patients like me. She sent me home in a relaxed and calm state and for that, I wish to commend her. She and the rest of your emergency room staff are a credit to the fine care Greene Memorial provides our little town of Xenia. Thanks again. You folks were fantastic.

The nurseing staff were all very helpful as well but I would especially like to thank Dan for an outstanding job! He really went far beyond what was required of him. Thank you all very much, Doug Fordyce

I am the daughter of Douglas Fordyce. My Dad had a heart cath at your facility yesterday, 01/28/19. His nurse, Dan was EXCEPTIONAL! He not only made my Dad feel comfortable by taking wonderful care of him, answering his questions and listening to his stories but he also was reassuring to our family and I really appreciate it! He obviously goes above and beyond in his work and I wanted it known how happy we were with his care and kindness. Thank you Dan!

Thank you for listening to my daughter's concerns about me, and for being by my bedside the whole time. Though I could not remember what had happened, I remembered you were right by my side the whole time, holding my hand and telling me it will all be okay. Despite having 6 patients on your own, you delivered excellent nursing care. You were more like a friend than a nurse, I felt safe having you as my nurse. The extra trip that you made to ICU after you got off work, just to see how I was doing and to pray with me, made my heart melt. So thank you, Zoe :)

Soin Medical Center, Unit: Emergency
I am a nursing student at Cedarville University and spent some time at Soin last semester (October through December). I had the pleasure of interacting with a lot of wonderful nurses and am so grateful for the things I learned from them! It was rare to work with a nurse that wasn't quick to educate and encourage. I can't believe I forget these details, but I believe it was the nurse manager that really made an impact on me. I don't remember her name, but she goes around to all of the patients to ask about their experience. One particular day I was working in the ED she approached my nurse and me and gave us a quick word of encouragement that our patient was very pleased with how we were treating them. She specifically pointed out that I was doing a great job. It is uncommon for nurses we students are not working with- especially leadership- to even acknowledge our presence on the floor. This nurse not only took the time to acknowledge my presence but also to encourage me in my endeavors. That meant so much to me and will stick with me for a long time. Everyone in the ED was so great to work with and I'm very grateful for my time there! Thank you!

Paula stepped in when she realized I was not getting the care I needed. She not only met my medical needs but my emotional needs as well. Her empathy during my recovery from surgery made the uncertainty of my situation seem a little bit better in that moment. I wish I could get her a bouquet of daisy. I feel strongly that she deserves a daisy award for her excellent care!

I was recently diagnosed with cancer and stayed at Kettering Medical Center. The care I had from all the nurses was exceptional but one of the most outstanding people I came across was Nurse Kelly. Her knowledge, dedication, caring nature, wit, and friendship is much appreciated. She went above and beyond to make me feel as comfortable as possible and her personal touches gave me a newfound look on life. Thanks, Kelly! You’re a true angel, girl!

Kat Durham
Kettering Medical Center, Unit:
One of the sweetest, most caring, sincere, dedicated people I ever had the pleasure of meeting is Kat Durham, a nurse I had at Kettering Medical Center. I can’t thank her enough for making my stay as comfortable as possible. I was recently diagnosed with cancer and Kat was very uplifting and always in good spririts. She came into my room one night and noticed I had been coloring and later that day came back with an inspirational coloring book which she personally signed. Thanks, Kat! I imagine this angel of a human being has touched many lives because she has certainly touched mine. Thank you so much for everything!

I wanted to thank John for his kindness and caring during my recent visit to the ER. John listened to everything I wanted to say and truly cared. John made sure he was in the room with me when new member of the hospital would visit me to act as my advocate and make for an easy transition. John is truly an asset to Sycamore and deserves an atta-boy from his supervisors. I am currently writing this while still admitted at the hospital and everyone I have encountered has been caring and amazing!
