Learn more about our first Nurse of the Month: SUSAN!

Presented by Absolut Care

Our first Nurses' Month winner is Susan!

Her daugher Chelsea nominated her, and this is her entry:
"Growing up my mom was always the mom who wouldn't let us stay home sick with just a silly stuffy nose. My mom is a nurse and she made it not only her career but also her job at home as well. She went back to school when I was in HS so she could further her career nursing. In 2015 I lived in Charlotte, NC. I was in a horrific car accident that left me bound to a couch/in a wheel chair for about a month and a half. My mom is by far the best nurse I know and I knew I couldn't get through this time without her. She flew down to take care of me. She went above and beyond keeping track of when I needed medicine and taking care of requesting the medical equipment necessary for me to move from the couch if need be. She made sure that I felt comfortable in my own home. Since then I have moved back to Buffalo and this March, had a follow up surgery. Yet again, she was by my side every step of the way- driving me to appointments and getting my medication- even as much as moving in to help be there around the clock for the first few weeks post surgery!"
