Wristband number

Story

I gave my wristband to an RN named Michelle at Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka, KS because she was absolutely wonderful while my boyfriend, Adam, was recovering from his back surgery. She was attentive, friendly, and caring, as any nurse should be, but she consistently went above and beyond to make sure he was comfortable and happy. For instance, she brought Adam the Coke she packed for her lunch because the kitchen wouldn't bring him one, and went downstairs to the nurses' lounge to get him ketchup when they forgot to put it on his tray. However, what made me sure I wanted to give her the wristband was when she stood up to the surgeon when he was being rude to us. The fact that she cared enough to advocate for Adam when the surgeon wouldn't listen to anything he had to say was very moving, and it was one of the most immense acts of kindness and compassion I have ever personally witnessed.
