Tina's caring spirit, attention to detail and professionalism made my mom’s stay the best possible given the level of pain she was in.

Tina always went above and beyond. She would come in every 2 hours, even without requests. She would check on my pain and she was gentle and calming. My last night here I had incredible cramps and she helped by giving me an enema and she helped by bringing a hot pad for my tummy. She was very encouraging and helpful without needing to ask. Tina takes thoughtful time to ask about my pain and give positive encouragement! Thank you for making my nights more manageable!

Tina assisted my mom during her surgery and recovery for two of the three nights she stayed. She assisted my mom who had limited mobility. She made us feel as if my mom was her only patient, even though we knew she had many more. Her caring spirit, attention to detail and professionalism made my mom’s stay the best possible given the level of pain she was in. Tina checked on my mom multiple times and provided necessary care and meds in a timely manner. She is well deserving of this award.
