Dear Ms. Simpson,
It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to express my undying gratitude to you and your good nursing staff. Without their dedication and care, my father would not be with us today. It was their attentiveness, their powers of observation which caught his pneumonia in the nick of time. So, for this we are eternally grateful, as hospital pneumonia can creep up slowly, and often go unnoticed until it is too late.
We also respect the care and tact needed to take care of our father. He can be a handful, cranky and out of sorts at times, so deeply appreciate your love and kindness during his more difficult periods. We understand from speaking with one of the orderlies, that dad really didn’t care for the shower chair, and made his disgust known using more than a few “four letter words”. So, know that you are appreciated.
Please accept our gift of flowers and chocolates to the nurse’s station, and individual gift certificates for the attending nurses for $50.00 each, to purchase what they will. These gift certificates will expire at the end of August, so it would be wise if you would encourage your staff to use them up as soon as possible.
Thank you again for taking excellent care of our father. My sister thanks you, my two brothers thank you, as does my beloved mother thank you. Please be well, and if you ever need anything, please don’t hesitate to call.
