“My father felt a huge connection with Doss. Doss was my father’s
nurse on two separate occasions and on both of those occasions my dad
was smiling more and felt an overall sense of happiness. My father said
that Doss treated him as if he was family. He carried himself with such
professionalism, kindness, and consideration. My father would tell us
that Doss would take him on walks to the balcony and that it was the first
time in a week that he had fresh air and he owed it all to Doss. There
were times where he felt he would never be able to see the outside, but
because Doss took time out of his busy schedule, he was able to enjoy
the outdoors for a while.
Thank you Doss for spending quality time with our father and taking him
on his walks. Those moments on the balcony meant so much to him. My father
stated that he felt hopeful and full of happiness after going on those walks.
Every interaction my father and our family had with Doss felt genuine.
He was attentive to my father’s needs and concerns. My family also
specifically noticed how organized he was and how we always felt welcom
to ask any questions.
My father would like to personally once again say gracias to Doss for
everything he did for him. Our family is eternally grateful to have had
such a wonderful nurse tending to our father. Thank you Kaweah Delta,
and thank you Doss.”
To pay tribute to Doss for demonstrating exceptional talents, dedication
and service to patients, He received a one-of-kind sculpture and banner
to be displayed in his department for his achievement.
