I worked with Nurse Mary for many years and am having a hard time realizing she is gone. She handled the immunization department. She had a knack of giving painless injections. Even though it was painless we werent anxious to get them. Mary had to chase us down to give us our immunizations. She made sure we were up to date and protected. She was kind to everyone and the staff and patients loved her. She was an excellent nurse. It was truly a pleasure knowing Mary. She was one of my most favorite nurses.
