Lily epitomizes standards, compassion, caring, kindness and passion that true nurses are born with – they are gifts from God.

During my daughter’s stay the staff were the friendliest, most qualified people that I have ever encountered. They knew what needed to be done, at what time and did it with a smile and compassion.  Questions were answered quickly with a friendly disposition.   They demonstrated a high level of professionalism, devotion, warmth and attention to my daughter. I believe that the staff was reflective of their leadership. 

There were angels present; not with wings and halos but with the spirit of healing and compassion.  I heard a quote one day and never understood the meaning until now, “Save a life and you are a hero; save a thousand lives, you are a nurse.”  One nurse reflected this quote, Lily Adams.  Lily epitomizes standards, compassion, caring, kindness and passion that true nurses are born with – they are gifts from God.  And in an ever calming voice of comfort, her attention to details, efforts in communicating and coordinating physicians and other healthcare professionals was exceptional. 

What I am speaking of goes beyond the job, it goes beyond duty and responsibility.  What I am speaking of is not measurable; Lily has ‘IT’.  Try to label ‘IT’ if you want, I am simply going to accept it for what ‘IT’ is, a gift.
