Stories of Gratitude and Support
I want to give the biggest applause to my best friend Sara. While battling cancer, she studied to become an NP, cared for her children, held down her home as the sole supporter, and is a best friend, mentor, and supporter of her friends and family. Sara, you are amazing!!
I want to send a big shout out to my supervisor Michelle Sommers at the VA in Union Grove for being the most caring, understanding, and hard-working nurse I know. She always is there to give a helping hand when needed and an open door when you need someone to talk to. Thanks!!
I would like to recognize Dr. Carol Moriarity, Educator. Carol puts her whole being into sharing her expertise and producing the BEST Nurses into the profession. Students soon realize how lucky they are to have learned from her! They share that their success would be to make her proud!
This is for my sister Irma. She is currently a Peds nurse. She has always loved kids, building great relationships with her patients and their parents. I have seen her come home very tired every night but ready to get back up. She is the reason I am studying nursing!
To all my nursing and healthcare family, I want you all to know that somewhere along the way you inspired me, encouraged me, carried me, and lifted me. Without the support of a strong team, good shifts, and great outcomes would be few and far between.
I’m a team leader and just wanted to give a shout out to my entire team of nurses. They work tirelessly to care selflessly for our patients. offering comfort, support, and assistance 24/7. Even in the toughest and most heart-wrenching circumstances, they provide superior care.
During this challenging time, Keith has risen to the occasion. He is tenacious, his work ethic admirable, supportive of his colleagues, and empathetic towards his patients. These traits carry over towards others in the hospital. It’s always about the small things we take for granted, like a haircut.
You see, Keith has a hidden talent of cutting hair, and he is good at it. He has graciously offered this service to our employees in the hospital. He will absolutely not accept money or tipping for this service. Keith has explained that doing this service is his contribution to the pandemic. He feels that it is a morale lifter; it gives people a sense of normalcy during a time of uncertainty. He enjoys seeing people smile, once they see the final product, while being humble and not wanting any credit.
Keith just started this a week ago. He has quickly grown to be popular. He has approximately reached 50 employees, all who are grateful and appreciate this act of kindness. We have even named his service, “Keith’s Kovid Kuts.” We are so proud to have someone of this caliber on our team, fighting beside us each day in the emergency room. Thank you!
