Last month was the worst month of my life. An accident occurred that led me to be a patient for several days. What was traumatizing was having to come in as a patient and facing people I work with on a daily basis. As soon as I came in I was recognized. My heart dropped. I was already scared and embarrassed, my dignity was completely gone. Nurse Marvin took care of me. His ability to remain calm and collected ensured my positive outcome. He knew I was scared and constantly kept people who did not belong away and gave me blankets. He asked me questions in a quiet manner preserving my privacy. As he took me to the Operating Room, he held my hand and assured me everything would be alright. He told me not to be scared and that it would be okay. His compassion has made me cry on a few different occasions as I think of this one simple gesture of comfort I truly needed at the time. It is hard to say thank you to him because words cannot describe my gratitude.
