John is very compassionate and brightens up everyone's day with his smile.

John Latta is an outstanding nurse. He goes above and beyond for his patients and staff. He is very compassionate and brightens up everyone's day with his smile as he walks down the hallway. John truly inspires me to be a better person.

John has been extremely nice, taking time out to direct me in different directions and explaining how the floors and patient rooms are. Others have been helpful but John really gives that extra attention. I also noticed that he really explains to patients what is going on with their care very thoroughly.

John helps everyone! He always has a smile and doesn't mind working hard. He has a huge heart and genuinely cares for people. I am an environmental service tech and to me, it's important that the patient rooms are kept up to par. John is awesome at that, as well as stripping the rooms when the patient is discharged. He shows passion in all of his work and treats all of his coworkers with respect.

John always thinks of the patient first. I think that sometimes as a nurse, it is very easy to get stuck on the tasks of nursing care. The patient always comes first with John. Once we had a well-known patient coming back to be on hospice. John anticipated her needs and her family's needs before they even arrived to the unit. This, among many other things, makes John an exceptional nurse.
