“Bravo” to Stephanie Ordakowski, RN, says patient
Here, a letter sent in by a patient of Stephanie Ordakowski, RN (JSU) thanking her for her amazing nursing care. Way to go, Stephanie!
Recently, I had the privilege of being cared for by a special nurse, Stephanie Ordakowski (a.k.a. Cricket).
Having lived with pain for months, I almost took it in stride and ignored the blitz that was to come. However, without pain medication from 9:30 a.m. that day, I had a pain meltdown. Stephanie came in, whisked me to bed and, to the minute, made certain that I was provided with a pain-free night. Aside from the many comforts provided me, she advised me on pain management when at home.
I am a diploma school nursing graduate from Church Home and Hospital in Baltimore and am continually amazed at the changes in the profession. In the midst of this new era of nurses pushing computers around at breakneck speed, Stephanie exhibited patient care skills I thought lost. Stephanie represents to me a woman who loves and truly responds to her calling. Bravo to her and to those who trained her. I shall never forget her and the loving way that she took care of me. I hope that you will acknowledge her efforts.
Thank you, Stephanie, and bless you!
