Celebrating Nurse's Week 2017

Sunday, May 07, 2017

Join us as we celebrate National Nurse's Week, May 6-12! Our nurses play a pivotal role in delivering Healthcare That Works, Healthcare That Is Safe, Healthcare That Leaves No One Behind. Through their collaboration and leadership, we're able to provide high quality, safe patient care. To those nurses who are already part of Ascension in Wisconsin, thank you. We value your continued commitment to our Mission and your passion for helping others.

For more information about our nurses and the care they provide, check out the following testimonials.

From Our Patients

"I went to the ER for a breathing treatment, and I was admitted for pneumonia. I stayed North Acuity, ICU. Everyone involved with my care did an excellent job, from the moment I walked in the door to the moment I left. The people in this hospital are top shelf."

"I was a patient getting a colonoscopy in the GI Lab. My nurse, Andi, was outstanding. She put my wife and I at ease immediately and we felt we were in great care the whole time. It is nice to have a pleasant, humorous and knowledgeable person taking care of you."

"To all of RNs and PCAs Rachel, Christina, Samantha, Nicole, Grace, there were others who were wonderful. With your help, your hands and your heart, you show how much you care and its appreciated more than words can say." 

"I just wanted to commend your staff for the incredible teamwork they displayed over night shift.  After going on ICU Capacity alert, the staff of the ICU, IMC and the ED really pulled together to get patients where they needed to be, safely. 6E took a large majority of the transfers out of the units with no complaints. The willingness to go the extra mile to take care of these patients and make sure they got the best care they could get was greatly appreciated by all involved.  Even though it was a very busy, very hectic night, the way every one came together made me extremely proud to be part of such a great team.  A HUGE thank you to the charge nurses in the ICU, IMC, 6E and in the ED: Michelle Brenninger, Erin VerHey, Kelly Carlton and Jeff Miller."

"Just moved here and this is the nicest place I've been so far. Everyone was friendly which has not been my experience while being in Milwaukee."

"May I just say that this is the best UC experience I've ever had. The provider was great-efficient and high quality."

"Everyone was very caring, warm, helpful and kind. You helped me above and beyond even with a language barrier. You helped refill my medication and establish a primary physician."

"A+ service, I am so happy with everyone there, everyone is cordial, understanding and caring, I live 5 minutes from there and it is so convenient to go there, great service, so happy!"

"I am writing to thank you all who were involved in my recovery. I was brought in to your unit through emergency. After speaking with my wife and family, I realized - had it not been for your care and expertise - I may not have survived. I was unaware of all that was transpiring at the time, but your care for me was exemplary. When I awoke with the tubes in my mouth, I was certainly glad to be alive. A nurse, Cassandra, deserves a special mention here. From wiping my brow, comforting me in this uncomfortable situation and the constant attention to my needs, she made my recovery as physically relaxed as possible. I hope you may pass this on to her and her fellow staff whose names I do not know. You all saved my life and I am eternally grateful. Please accept my deepest, heart-felt thanks. It is people like you who make Columbia St. Mary's Hospital great."

"To St. Mary's Hospital, the emergency department, the ICU department, and all the professional providers whom we have come to know as our extended family member and to those working behind the scene. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!"

From Our Nurses

“You can learn the technical skill, but that love of people and compassion has to come from inside of you.” - Cassi Scaife, RN

“Nurses are integral to creating a seamless continuum of care for patients. The opportunity to collaborate with physicians to develop a patient-centered, evidence-based breast cancer program has been uniquely rewarding and is what has kept me working here for the past 37 years.” - Deb Thiene, RN, CBCN
