Subject: You Made Our Day
Greetings from the Emergency Department Staff at Huntsville Hospital in Huntsville, Alabama!
The school bus accident involving several High School students made National news. Our Emergency Department treated most of the victims. Your ED nursing staff heard about the accident and performed the most honorable gesture; they treated our nursing staff to lunch. Today, Nov. 21, 2006, around noon, we received several pizzas with a note attached from the ED Nursing staff at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital saying we are with you keep up the good work! It was an honor to receive this token of recognition. The President of the United States can bestow a token of appreciation upon an individual for a job well-done, but when colleagues bestow a gesture of recognition the meaning is far more substantial. We would like to say thank you, and, your staff made our day.
Attached is a picture of a few staff members who were on duty and treated the victims. I hope you receive it. The person holding the "N" is from Boston. This really touched her.
