We received a letter about a month ago from a former patient who provided a list of names of staff and physicians who cared for him while he was here in the hospital. He felt they deserved special recognition. I took that list and for the past month, I’ve been tracking down these medical staff to let them know they were recognized and to present them with one of our Grateful Patient pins on behalf of this former patient. Each person was thrilled and appreciative of the gesture.
I want to thank this gentleman for recognizing those who cared for him and making the effort to let us know. I also want to thank the staff in these departments who deliver care with empathy, compassion and respect for every patient.
