Helpful and friendly at Trenton Memorial Hospital
March 17, 2023
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to say how impressed I was with everyone I encountered during my two recent visits to TMH. I was in the Cysto Clinic on Feb 21 and the Minor Surgery Dept. on Mar 9. Everyone I spoke to on both visits was extremely polite and helpful. The nurses who assisted with both of my procedures were friendly and did everything they could to make me as comfortable as possible.

Helping a patient feel safe in the TMH Emergency Dept.
February 26, 2023
“Tanya Brown (a nurse in the Trenton Memorial Hospital Emergency Department) was so kind and caring. She did everything she could to help calm me down and make me feel safe. She walked me through everything she needed to do, she talked me through it all and she also let me pick the pace of things so that I wasn’t as nervous. Tanya made this scary visit less scary and helped me to feel safe. I may have given her a rough time at the start but that’s what teenagers do. But thank you so so much Tanya.” – a grateful patient Tanya Brown, RPN #Compassion #ValueEveryone
