Tyler was very aware of and sensitive to my anxiety. His personality was so empathetic and reassuring.
I am a retired physical and health educator and I am writing this letter after having surgery. I believe it essential for me to share with you the purpose of this letter. I had the most phenomenal nurse that I ever had in my history of 12 surgeries! His name is Tyler Evans. One of the days I was in the hospital, I noticed that I was assigned a male nurse, as well as a male tech. My immediate reaction was of horror! In all my past surgeries I never had a male nurse and a male tech. I had never used a bedpan, probably because I was always catharized or I was allowed out of bed to use the bathroom. Tyler was very aware of and sensitive to my anxiety. His personality was so empathetic and reassuring about all those embarrassing bodily functions – such as bedpans, passing gas, bowel movements, and, worst of all, having to change my gown and the sheets due to me spilling a full bed pan! How embarrassing!!! He was delightful to speak with and so informative about what would happen with my recovery, which included swelling, bruising, nausea, and constipation. His warm, sensitive and humorous personality was a delight.
