    "There isn’t one day in MICU, when Carolyn is working, that she isn’t going above and beyond for a patient, their family and her fellow nurses. Recently, she allowed a family use her RV, at no charge, during their family member’s hospital stay. She also made them homemade meals. We appreciate her heart for people and hope many follow her example!"
