Myleshia’s Nomination

“Myleshia is truly special. She is absolutely in the right career. She was the CNA on duty on my absolute worst night. I was in agony. I was in tears. I was miserable. When she came in to help me to the bathroom, she saw that I was in such distress, that I was on my knees against the bed. At that moment I had given up and didn’t want to go any further.

You know what she did? She hugged and rocked me until I was able to get back in bed. I have never felt as much pain as I did those first 3-4 days, and while she couldn’t give me the medicine, she gave me PURE LOVE. You forget the pain over time, but you never forget those who held your hand through it.

BEE Committee and senior leadership presented the award to Myleshia Friday morning.

She is so wonderful, she continued to visit even though I wasn’t her patient anymore.”

Myleshia was presented with a certificate, lapel pin, a floral arrangement, cupcakes and a small gift.
