Whenever Martha is asked for help she is always willing regardless of how busy she is.

Martha precepted me as a new nurse and during my time learning from her, I witnessed dedication and compassion beyond measure.  Whenever I asked a question, Martha went out of her way to provide an answer, explanation, or demonstration.  When Martha interacted with patients who were afraid of the situation, such as a port access or unwilling to take medication easily, she always remained very calm and patient.  Whenever Martha is asked for help she is always willing regardless of how busy she is.  Martha is a wonderful example of the knowledge and care that needs to be provided as a Pediatric HEMOC Nurse.

*****

Martha is gentle and incredibly patient with my daughter.  She is wonderful at explaining the medications and treatments to my daughter, her father, and myself.  We are very pleased with her; this is the second time we have had Martha as our nurse and we are very grateful for the attention she gives our daughter. Martha has shown us respect, which is why we are so pleased with her.

God bless Martha and all the nurses in this hospital. May God guide Martha and the rest of the staff to always be understanding with children and teenagers that are here in the hospital.  Thank you all so much for everything.
