On January 2nd, Allen was my night nurse. He was so compassionate and caring. All of the staff are good, but he really stands out. I don't have much feeling from the waist down due to a back condition and he made me feel very safe when he helped get me up and he was extremely gentle when he turned me. I don't mind a male nurse helping me but you should know how considerate and respectful of my privacy he was: he waited outside of door and didn't leave me. If I did use the call bell for assistance, he answered it quickly. He offered me warm wash cloths to clean my hands. He is a real gentleman through and through and an excellent caregiver.
I am involved in my health care. All of the nurses explained what medications they were giving me and Allen was very good at this as well. I am being discharged today from Piedmont Medical Center and I wish I could clone Allen to care for me in my long term care facility. Oh what healthcare could be if all caregivers were as compassionate as Allen!
