How Can I Express my Gratitude to a McKay-Dee Hospital Caregiver?
Recognize them as a Guardian Angel!
Your caregivers play an important role in your healing by providing a high standard of care. Share your story and take a moment to recognize your special Guardian Angel. This person can be a physician, nurse, housekeeper or any McKay-Dee Hospital employee who you feel has lifted your spirit and touched your life.
You may also make a charitable donation to the foundation in honor of your Guardian Angel. Your expression of appreciation will serve to validate the reason caregivers have chosen their profession, which is to help others and make a difference. A commemorative lapel pin will be sent to your Guardian Angel to proudly wear as a gesture of your recognition and a constant reminder of their dedication.
Stories of Appreciation
Sierra's Experience in Labor & Delivery
I would like to recognize Geri Stratford my labor and delivery nurse. I felt like I had known her my entire life. She made me feel so comfortable and she explained everything to me. Geri walked me through every step, easing my fears so when my baby was born, I was not frightened. I have the bookmark and wanted to let you know that she is my “Guardian Angel.”
Bob's Experience in the Hospital
Danielle Bonenes was my CNA. She loves her job and it shows. We had some long talks and she kept my diet coke filled all the time. Even when she wasn’t coming into my room but going to help someone else, she would pop her head in and say hello, and ask how I was doing. She made me feel like I was the favorite-special. My wife has been a nurse and taught nursing at Weber State University. Danielle gets it and will be a great nurse someday.
Patricia's Experience in the Hospital
When I came to the hospital I was very sick. I was having trouble breathing. X-rays showed something and I was not sure if it was cancer or pneumonia. I was very upset thinking it may be cancer. My CNA, Christina came into my room and listened to me. I asked her to pray with me. She did. Every time she had a break she would stop by and check on me. My daughter came from New Mexico to be with me. She used every bit of money that she had to bring her and my two grandsons up to see me in the hospital. When they got here they were hungry but had no money left. I did not have any food in my apartment either. Christiania took my daughter and her two sons down to the cafeteria and bought them dinner. She paid for this out of her own pocket. She is my Guardian Angel - watching out for me and my grandkids.
