This letter of appreciation is in recognition of the doctors, nurses, and
staff of the third and fourth floor ICU units at Rideout who were so attentive,
gracious, caring, and kind to our Aunt during the 31 days she spent at
the hospital prior to her passing. The depth of knowledge and devotion
to each medical process, and follow-up procedures to assure she was given
a chance to fight her disease was of the highest caliber. Although she
couldn’t understand or express the depth of care and attention she
received, I know she was kept comfortable and felt a strong connection
to those who tended to her every need.
I want to express a special thanks to my friend and a wonderful doctor,
Dr. Paul Bains. Dr. Bains was there day or night when the family had questions or concerns
and never hesitated to stop in and comfort us during a very difficult
time. ICU Nurse
Kimmie [Harmon] was so compassionate and thorough with caring for B and went
out of her way to assist the family with understanding what each of the
procedures were. There were so many doctors, nurses, and staff taking
care of B and we didn’t take note of all the names, although I am
sure each of them know who they are and we want to thank them as well.
I want to express our true appreciation for all you did during a very difficult
time. No words can express our gratitude towards all of you.
