Jerry’s Nomination

“My mother is a retired RN and I am an RN and we lost my father 2 days after a routine procedure. Jerry was very attentive to my mother, but it was not his CNA skills that we were impressed with but his heart, compassion, laughter and dignity he gave not to just my mom but to all around him. The whole floor was fabulous.

I feel we get caught up with the “parts and diseases” and often forget that there is a person here. Love and compassion is the best medicine and Jerry was the example of that!

Mom came for this surgery from Indiana. I am thankful she made that choice. My mom can leave here 3 days post-op with less pain and some restoration of faith gain in our healthcare system.”

Many of Jerry’s co-workers were on-hand for the surprise award celebration Friday afternoon. Jerry was presented with a certificate, lapel pin, a floral arrangement and a small gift.
