I was air lifted from Anna to St Frances and spent a couple days in ICU for a severe COPD flare. Also spent 3 more days in regular room. I was treated with kindness, respect and grace by the hospitalist and nurses alike. They helped me to get much better before leaving. I also had a gift from God with a CNA named Rachquel, who deserves special recognition for going above and beyond in her knowledge and kindness. She helped me numerous times. She gave me a shower and I did not even get out of breath which hasn't happened in a few years. She deserves a raise and at the very least, some sort of award or certificate. Good ones like her are very hard to find and we need to keep them when we do find them. They are rare nowadays and hard to come by. I just can't say enough good things about her. Hopefully I won't have to come back to the hospital but if I do, at Frances would be my first choice. Thank you so much for helping me. Karen Calvert
