A patient was hospitalized at LVH–Pocono for several weeks after experiencing setbacks in his recovery. While caring for the man, Morgan realized he was feeling sad and hopeless. To cheer him up, she came to visit him on her day off and gave him four giant balloons. It put a big smile on his face and touched his family.
The colleague who served as Morgan’s preceptor to critical care wasn’t surprised by her kindness and compassion. She says, “Morgan was such a joy to mentor, so hungry to learn, always asking questions and reading at home. She always goes above and beyond to help her patients and their families get through the difficult times. I frequently hear her patients and family members compliment her nursing care, and I tell them she was my orientee. As much as I’d like to take some credit for her excellent nursing care, I can’t. Morgan was born to be a nurse! She just touches people with her care and compassion.”
A patient who Morgan cared for following heart surgery said, “She worked extremely hard and professionally. She has a great personality that made me extremely comfortable when I was really nervous. I was beyond impressed by her. She has a rare quality, and you are lucky to have someone like her on your staff.”
