The first night in the hospital after a day in the ER and surgery is not supposed to be a 5-star experience. My husband's pain and discomfort made it miserable, except for the attentive and compassionate care provided by his nurse. From helping to manage his pain to making every adjustment imaginable to the tubes, sheets and bed (repeatedly), Susan exhibited patience and kindness and treated him as if he were a member of her own family. She never stopped trying to make him comfortable.
After almost 12 hours at the hospital, my husband arrived at his room just after shift change and Susan got him settled. After the long day which started in the ER and ended with surgery, he was in a great deal of pain. Susan continued to do everything possible to help him get through the night. She showed such compassion and caring and was truly an angel.
