I have had several surgeries performed at this hospital and Ruth was my nurse.  She is very compassionate and caring.  On my first surgery, I had very dry lips and had nothing for them so when I returned for my next surgery, Ruth brought me some of her homemade balm for my lips.  As I continue to see her when I come in for other procedures, she always has kind words and a hug for me and I'm sure I'm not the only one!  I simply love her - she is the BEST!


I found Ruth to be very caring as my surgery time approached.  She was there with me and never left, which made me feel secure and comfortable.  I liked her very much.
