Her nominator said this, “She goes above and beyond to get our patients the care that they need even after they leave our hospital. She stays late to set up care for our patients after they’ve been dismissed so that they have the care in their homes and to make sure they get therapy, etc. they need. She is compassionate and truly cares about our patients and only wants the best for them. We are fortunate to have a caring, experienced nurse like Shelly at SCH.”
