"I asked for a root beer float and was told the hospital does not have root beer.  I was very disappointed that I could not have my favorite snack. The next day the charge nurse surprised me with a can of A & W soda that she brought from her own home.  I was very grateful and felt that she truly cared about me and my needs as more than a patient.  This may seem minor to others but Michele went above and beyond to make my stay more enjoyable.
