3 E Nursing Assistant Elsa Driz is a star! A patient's daughter wrote to CEO Kirk Tice of her compassion and caring while the woman's mother was hospitalized here. Here is a portion of her letter:
"She helped to feed her and care for her in a way that helped my mother in times when she was scared and confused. She would make sure my father had a snack while he was there and encouraged him to eat. When it became overwhelming for my father, she would have him go for a walk and would sit with my mother to assure him that my mother was okay.
"Her empathetic and caring nature was a beacon of light for my family as we watched my mother become weaker every day until she passed away.
"My mother actually came to me in a dream and told me she wanted me to write this letter. I feel that it's because Elsa's compassion reached through my mother's confusion and into her soul. She knew Elsa was helping her and appreciated her kindness."

Nursing Assistant Charles Daly is a Star! Mr. Daly received a number of letters of praise and thanks last month for his kind, attentive care. But this one seemed to summed up the kind of care he provides: "Charles has always been there for me. Right on the money. Always a smile or joke or two to make me forget why I am here. Whenever I ask for something, he responds in a timely manner...He is "A" Number One in my book. Many others feel the same way."
Nurse Carlos Nicasio is a Star! He was recognized for his professional, attentive and compassionate care for patients and their families.
Here is a quote from a very impressed and grateful patient. "This man treated me like I was his father. Not only did he go beyond great medical treatment, but he explained everything he was going to do in advance.
"Mr. Nicasio helped me when I was weak and scared due to my condition. He is the best nurse I ever had the pleasure to meet. You should be proud to have staff with this knowledge and compassion toward patients."
