Very Impressed Visitor

"I feel compelled to write you this letter about a very special Hospice Certified Nursing Assistant, Anita Halko.  I work in healthcare myself and as you know we always tend to hear the negative more than the positive.  I am a regular at St.Elizabeth's Home. I have observed Anita on several different occasions. She is very professional and personable to those she is caring for, and to everyone she comes in contact with. She even knows name of other residents and is very friendly to them. Anita is not only an asset to Nursing Placement, but you should feel proud knowing she is in the community representing the Hospice Department."
