My husband has been at Bethesda Hospital West for over two weeks. He has had many, many nurses care for him by now. You, my dearest, have been the standout. You are the one. I have nominated you for the DAISY Award, but you deserve your own award.
You were never harried or hurried. You always took the time to address our concerns. You showed such compassion and competence. You were so knowledgeable about anything that we asked you. You explained things in a manner that was easy to understand. You were so careful, always doing things the right way. Don't think that patients and their families don't notice things, especially the little things. We do, I noticed.
Then, you called me at home to see how my husband and I were doing. You truly, truly care. In my opinion, you were born to be a nurse! Thank you for all that you've done. Please know that you have made a difference in someone's life.
