Out of the many outstanding nurses here in the cancer inpatient unit, Kelly always stood out. Not only was she outstanding with her job and making patients and family members feel comfortable, she was able to make my 50+ days of hospital stay very enjoyable.
Nurses are generally responsible for medicating patients accordingly and explaining to patients and families about the treatment process/length. Kelly on top of that; she was a genuine friend to me. She brought me yummy treats and tried her hardest to help me pass time in the hospital when I had no family or friends visiting me. Even on her day off, she came to the hospital to celebrate my birthday. Kelly is a spectacular nurse who not only excels at her job but goes above and beyond to put a smile on her patient's faces.
