When Monica came on shift she listened to my concerns about his dressing changes and involved him in the conversation.

My husband had been in and out of ICU, IMC, and regular floors for months. Monica handled and moved him around so gently.  She took the time to speak to him of things of interest, encourage, be firm about eating without whining or being negative.

My husband had an infection of his toe and on his back side.  He had surgery on the hip area and the surgeon came by each day checked on the pads and taping of the area and changed the type of dressing. I was there 24 hrs a day. When Monica came on shift she listened to my concerns about his dressing changes and involved him in the conversation. She also addressed his pain and discomfort.  He was placed on Neurontin which immediately helped the tenderness of his skin. She made a large note on the area of the room where his dressings pads were.  The surgeon could communicate to the nurses using this note on how he wanted dressing changes done or changed.

Monica is a huge asset to your nursing service.  I am so glad she was there for us.  You all are the best, I share this with everyone so people know where to go to get great nursing care!
