Isbel Muniz, RN
son was diagnosed with Osteomyelitis. Our overall nursing experience
was good but there was one person who was so special that
we needed to write to you to let you know. Isbel
Muniz was our nurse
the first night of our stay. She was kind, funny, warm, smart, compassionate
and patient with our family.
The next night after he got his PICC
line put in, Isbel was our nurse and we were so excited to take out his IV on his hand which was bothering him from
the night before. Isbel was unbelievable as the
bandage wasn't coming off and his skin was all beat up from trying to get it
off. She sat with my son for over
an hour and let him lead--she was creative, funny, smart, educated, thought in
advance and made him feel in control and that everything was fine. We loved her before this event
happened but after she finally got the bandage off she was an angel in our
hearts. It takes a very special person
to display such patience and compassion to do what she did that night.After Isbel left our room that
my son (11 years old) asked, "Are you getting Isbel's
phone number?" I asked why? He said, "because we need
to keep special people like Isbel in our lives.“ People like her are hard to find,
employees… even harder. Thank you, NCH and
Isbel. My son left Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, with a memory of
wonderful people and feeling empowered about his condition instead of stressed
about his recovery and having a serious bacterial infection in his bone. Now,
that has NO price. Thanks again. We love you Isbel!”
Esther Wooten RN, BSN, CPN
would like to let you know how much I appreciate the special care my
baby was given by Esther Wooten.
She not only showed professionalism but Esther
was caring, loving and very helpful. Every time my baby gets admitted to the Cardiac
unit and Esther is his nurse, I always get a piece of mind know he will be taken care of at night. Esther always goes
the extra mile taking care of him and shows how she loves her job. Esther is very
professional, friendly, compassionate, social and sweet. Esther is an
extraordinary nurse and always treats my baby as if he were her own. I can rest
at night knowing that my baby will be in good hands and that if he cries she
will be right in the room to check on him and make him feel better. Esther
always explains everything in a way I can understand. My heart, love and thanks
go out to Esther, she is an exceptional nurse”
