I came into the ER on Saturday, 12/12, to check complications with my sore throat. Though I was unable to speak at the time, I was extraordinarily grateful for the care given to me by Nurse Melinda McMahon. After I was taken into the ER, due to lack of rooms I was placed into a temporary partitioned area for several hours. Melinda very kindly administered all of my bloodwork and patiently worked to find my dehydrated veins to attach an IV. She checked in on me frequently, despite it being a packed ER, making sure that I was as comfortable as possible. Also, Melinda's COVID swabbing skills were impeccable, because it barely hurt at all. Melinda's compassion towards me in all the small ways really made a world of difference while I was undergoing immense suffering yesterday, yet I was unable to thank her for that, so I wanted to do so now. Thank you, Melinda, for your care towards me.
