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!
