Linda Whitt is an excellent nurse, a cheerleader, a patient advocate, and a friend all rolled into one. She is the kind of nurse that you would want taking care of your loved ones any day of the week-and that says a lot coming from a fellow nurse. There truly is something to the way Linda is with her patients-it's not just the warm blanket, a cold ginger ale and her nurturing smile that make her patients fall in love with her-it's in her ability to make her patients feel like they can totally trust that they will be okay under her care.

She is focused on patient safety and advocacy-committing to always doing the right thing. In addition, Linda goes out of her way to let her co-workers know she cares about them. Whether it is organizing a birthday party of passing around cards to sign to encourage or celebrate with staff members, Linda whole-heartedly works to make our team-our family-as strong and as happy as it can be! She is our "wonderful cinnamon aroma" in the shape of a happy, scrub-wearing nurse. And I just want her to know how much she is appreciated!
