    –Thank you to the kind and careful nurses, especially Frolin and Kimberly, who helped me when I was in the hospital a few years ago. Hand hygiene experts!

  2. I thank the nurses for sharing with us. This is why I think Kaiser is the best, because of the people who work here. I’m an employee, but I have been a patient. I received wonderful care. The care I received helped me recover faster.

  3. So beautifully done. Thank you. I am proud to be a Kaiser Permanente RN and to have the opportunity to touch lives and to receive so much in return.

  4. Very proud knowing one of these important people for patients. I know she had a great example through her mother’s professional experience.

  5. This was a beautiful video. It’s great to see the challenges nurses have to endure on a daily basis and how they overcome them. Thank you for allowing us an inside view.

  6. Wonderful video! I especially loved seeing Linda in action! She is an awesome ICU Nurse, and as a UA I’ve had the pleasure of working with her numerous times — she definitely deserves some shine! “LOVED the BLACK & WHITE theme!” Great visuals!
