When I was admitted I came in with shortness of breath, I was scared to death. I had a few other nurses before meeting such a sweet, caring and compassionate nurse named Sharon. She could tell how scared, nervous and stressed I was. Instead of just taking my history, vitals, and meds she provided a friendly and caring shoulder to lean on during such a stressful time for me. Sharon's empathy and caring attitude goes above and beyond her job responsibilities. When I would call her, she would get there as soon as possible always with a smile on her face. Sharon was very compassionate and reassuring that things would be ok considering we didn't know each other. I feel like I could go on forever about Sharon what an amazing person and nurse she is. I am so glad to know there are people like Sharon that put others needs first. My time that I have spent at Mary Washington Hospital has been such a positive experience because of Sharon. Thank you, Sharon, for being who you are. God bless you.
