"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. "
