An RWJ Rahway Physical Therapy patient wrote this of therapist Jennifer Soares, rehab attendant Keri Grant and Maureen Panetta, receptionist, who work in our Scotch Plains facility: "I have been a physical therapy patient on two separate occasions in the past two years...Most recently, I was seen for a right shoulder replacement following a 2014 surgery. Prior to that, I was coping with a femur fracture after a fall on the ice.
"I am writing to express my great appreciation for Jennifer's professional skills, dependability and availability as my physical therapist. I have great confidence in her abilities. I must also mention Keri's invaluable assistance and awareness of what kind of equipment or help I might need before I even ask.
"Everyone there helped in making a difficult period for me much more pleasant by their caring manner and warm personalities in addition to their professional skill.
"I can't offer enough compliments to do everyone justice. I would most highly recommend your staff to anyone in need of care...."

A patient's daughter wrote this of 2E Nurse Laura Makras: "Sometimes in a person's life, another person comes along and shows such caring and loving toward another they don't know. That is Mrs. Makras. She took care of my Mom, went out of her way to care and help her, reassure her, and explain everything; comfort her and help her with her recovery. You only find this person once in a million. A heart as big as the world. Exceptional. She needs to be recognized for just being her."

A patient's daughter wrote this of 3E Nurse Jay Raikar: "When my mom returned to the hospital, I knew that this time she would not survive...I was alone with no one to talk with, share my thoughts or feelings...Nurse Jay recognized the pain I was experiencing and took time out to stay awhile and share thoughts with me. She offered me some comforting and encouraging worlds. She reassured me that she would be close by if I needed her.
I was mom's caregiver for many years and watching her slowly die was extreme anguish. I did not want her to die alone, so I stayed with her; hours melted into days...I heard the door to the room quietly open often and I knew Nurse Jay was checking to see if all was okay. Nurse Jay later came in to administer medications and again spent more time with me, exchanging personal experiences, which gave me much relief.
She noticed I was not eating so she provided me food and made sure I ate; not only in the morning, but also in the evening. Several times we hugged and each time I felt her sincere love and compassion.
Jay is surely a Star sent from heaven. I was so extremely grateful for her gif of love, comfort and support. Several times I thanked her and each time she repeated, "It's only my job."
