Lindsay, Our mom is Mary Ratliff and you were her nurse while she was in ICU on 6/21. You really went above and beyond to ensure that she received the best care. You were patient with us as we were trying to understand and deal with everything that was going on. My mom is now in heaven, with no more pain and suffering. It takes a special person to be an ICU nurse and you are definitely called by God to do so. You'll never truly know how much we appreciate your care. Thank you! Forever grateful, The children of Mary June Ratliff (Lamb)

Sam I know I broke my promise of being sober and bettering myself the first time we met and I truly believe God put you in my path once again to remind me that I have to get my life straight because I am destroying myself by my own will. All I want to say is that you are my guardian angel and I can not find the way to express my gratitude towards you for being so nice to me and not judging me me for my poor decisions. You are an exemplary RN and above all else a extraordinary human being. Thank you and I hope to be able to thank you in person one day again. May God Bless You and your loved ones thank you for being a hero. Sincerely, Ariel Baca

I know that covid has complicate all the normal routines and services we've grown accustomed to.

Thank you for your help, understanding, and compassion you've shown me in my endeavor. May God Bless you, Lynn W.

Where is your outrage Kettering? Fire Denise Magpie-Fetters and take a stand for the BLM Movement. Your silence speaks LOUDLY. KHN has always been ran by old rich white males, use that privilege and speak for those whose voices are not heard as well as yours. #BlackLivesMatter

I am appalled at this nurse and completely disgusted! I am going to make this short and sweet. As a women in the medical field we are part of the first responders. We are suppose to protect and care for EVERYONE regardless of the color of their skin. I will be making sure WHIO, WDTN and whomever else needs to get the info on this poor excuse of a nurse, I understand that we hire people not knowing views that people have however, this is publicly put out there! Your response should be to remove her from her position from KHN and we should all be made aware of what your intents are on handling this situation.

David was very kind and patient with my 80 year old father. They were discharging him and David asked if he was okay with that since he was short of breath or had other questions. He was patient when dad said he was worried about anxiety. It was a breath of fresh air to have someone show complete concern and patience. I know that is part of a nurse’s makeup but David went above and beyond caring as if it was one of his relatives. Thank you!

Lynn, when my daughter stopped breathing, turned gray, was limp and needed PPV 14 hours after she was born in March 2017, you took such good care of her and of me. You cared for her and watched her when she did it again 2 hours later. You came and checked on us the next day to see how she was doing. YOU are my hero. When my nurse brain wouldn’t work and my helpless tired mom brain took over, you were there to help us and make sure she was ok. I will never forget you and I don’t know if you will ever understand the impact you had on me while we were there. Thank you!! ??

My mom had a heart attack on April 13th, 2020 during the Covid-19 quarantine. This was completely unexpected and without warning. The family was not allowed to see her and to love her in person. For a close knit family like ours....this was devastating. Both units were kind To our family while fielding all of our calls of concern and to get updates. I remember telling a couple nurses from ICU that our family was counting on them to love our mom in are absence.....I feel that they did just as we asked. Mom is coming home this week from two weeks in rehab and is more alive and vibrant than she was from before surgery. Thanks to all doctors, nurses and staff who blessed us by giving us our mom, grandmother and great grandmother back to us to love for a LOT more years!!! Warmest Regards!!! Gail

My husband and I had a great stay after having our son. All the nurses we had really were great, but we wanted to especially thank you. You took your time with us and explained things to us. You really helped us to feel at ease. We appreciated you so much both nights that we had you as our nurse. I know during this time in our world, things are even harder, but I wanted to make sure you knew your hard work didn't go unnoticed. Again, thank you, from our little family.

I could not be more proud of the nurse you have become. The loving care you give to “your” babies has got to warm the hearts of the parents. You are strong and never hide your emotions of love. Your own 3 year old daughter. Maggie, even knows how much good work you do. She will say to me on the day you work “I am letting mommy love another baby today.” You are AWESOME!!! Love You To The Moon And Back!!! Mom

I can’t express enough how thankful my fiancé and I were for Taylor’s help and care during our stay after having our baby boy Brooks. There’s a certain type of person it takes to be a good nurse and Taylor has everything it takes. She made the first couple nights of being a parent much easier. She took amazing care of all three of us. When I was getting too tired she’d help by taking brooks to the nursery where he got all the snuggles. She helped explain so much about what was going on with both brooks and me. After having an emergency c section it was pretty traumatizing and we truly don’t think our experience would have been as happy and pleasant without Taylor’s help. THANK YOU TIMES A MILLION.

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!

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

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.

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.

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

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!

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Cardiac Ca
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.

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!

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.

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.
