Kudos & Kindness: It was a pleasure to work with the nurses at Barton

For 18 1/2 years, I was privileged to work with an amazing group of women — the labor and delivery nurses at Barton Memorial Hospital. Smart, compassionate, and dedicated, they made my job as an obstetrician easier. They knew their stuff and I could sleep (albeit briefly) at night easier knowing they would recognize a problem and call me immediately. In addition to being good nurses, they were fun to work with; several had quite the wicked sense of humor. Respectful of the doctors, they still knew how to put me in my place if I got a bit too big for my britches, especially the O.B.s, at the end of the week — you know who you are!I love and respect you all and know the patients are in good hands with you. I will miss working with you.Kelly Shanahan, M.D.South Lake Tahoe
