She was incredibly compassionate.

Katie Inman, Patient

On August 25, 2011, my mother was suddenly moved to ICU for numerous health problems. When I arrived in her room, I was greeted by her nurse, Michelle Wilson. I spent the entire day with my mother and I quickly realized that Michelle wasn’t just any nurse and was truly passionate about her role as a nurse. She was incredibly compassionate to not only my mother, but also our family. The day was full of emotion and as my mother began her first dialysis, we were all anxious as to the outcome. As day turned into evening, my sisters and I decided to go get something to eat. Well, as luck would have it, it wasn’t long after we left that my mother took a sudden turn for the worse. Michelle did what she was supposed to do and quickly went to my mother’s chart and called the contact numbers. When she did not get a response, she then thought back to the discussions she heard as to where we were going and took it upon herself to call the restaurant and described us to the person who answered the phone. We were then able to rush back to the hospital and be at our mother’s bedside. I will forever appreciate Michelle and the extra mile she went to find us at such a critical moment in our lives. Bronson is fortunate to have an employee as outstanding as Michelle.
