Jennifer Morales, LeConte Medical Center patient and nominator wrote, “I’m not sure where to start about this woman – she was surely my angel! This woman literally saved my life.
Jennifer also added, “After delivery of my baby, Rosa took such awesome care of me. She went above and beyond to make sure my every need was met. The day I was supposed to be discharged, Rosa saw that I was retaining fluid and identified an infection that very well could have been life threatening. This woman made sure the doctor took another look. I ended up in ICU that evening. Later the next day, I went back to L&D. My same nurse cared for us up until the last day. This woman is the most courteous, knowledgeable and amazing nurse I could have asked for. She is my angel and I hope she is around LeConte for a long time to be the same for other patients. This lady is such a great asset to your facility!”
Thank you Rosa for always putting our patients first and taking excellent care of each of them!
