Prayers and FOOD!
From Joan Hermes:
I visited with a patient recently who had his knee replaced.
He was quite impressed with the food, said it was the best and he has had a LOT of hospital food.
He also said the best part of his visit, besides the food, was when Dr. Hanlon grabbed his hand right
before surgery and asked if he would like to say a prayer with him. He said it took him by surprise, but
he was so happy that the doctor did that. His wife turned to Hanlon as he walked away and said, hey,
don’t forget me, and he grabbed her hand and said a prayer with her, too. They just loved it!
They also said that the message of providing excellent care was consistent with every staff member and said
there was a big difference in admitting.
