Markeith has a passion for the care he provides to his patients. Everyday Markeith enters the hospital, he shares a love for his profession and complete care for his patients through his selfless sense of humility. He not only makes his patients feel at ease, but he shares that empathy with the patients’ loved ones, building trust with each of his patients, their families, and his peers. One recent patient story showcases Markeith's experience, and he was described by his peers as the force that guided the family through a difficult journey, providing hope, compassion, and was constantly present when both the patient and their loved ones needed support beyond clinical care.
Markeith was described as the patient's favorite nurse. The family has never experienced the attention to detail and care Markeith provided. He was gentle and sweet, thoughtful, but ran a tight ship. When the patient was refusing to eat, Markeith would sit with them and get them to eat, drink, and listen. Through every difficult decision, the family faced, Markeith showed empathy and compassion and truly was an extension of care for every clinical team involved. He embodies what it means to be a DAISY Nurse, a true advocate for his patients and their loved ones.
