ICU RN Honored in News Article

ICU RN Brooked Ballard was honored with a moving article by Bro. Mike Tynes in today's Enterprise-Journal. The family of Mrs. Lena Hodges calls Brooke, "an angel in a human body" for her loving and professional care of Mrs. Hodges. Tynes quoted 1 Peter 4:8:" Not only does love cover a multitude of sin, it sparks a will to live in a dying soul." The family asked that Brooke's excellent treatment be recognized. "She made a difficult time for both patient and family more tolerable with her graciousness", added Mrs. Hodges' daughter, Ruth Terrell. Brooke, 24, transferred to SMRMC's ICU last year and wanted to "make a difference in the lives of people in distress", she said, and added, 'It is my goal to help people through their most difficutl times as these." THANK YOU BROOKE and all NURSES who give their BEST for our patients!
