Thank you D-HH Heroes!

Thank you for risking your lives every day to fight against this virus and protect me, my family, and literally everyone I know. We'd have a whooooole lot of other problems if you weren't saving lives. You are making a huge difference everyday and I'm so thankful.

Also, thank you for preventing 28 days later.

She has been such a professional even during these times of uncertainty and fast changing rules and recommendations. There have been trying times being out on the front lines but she has continued to show up and get the job done. Thank you Brooke!

I would love to thank the computer help desk phone team, the admin teams, the telehealth teams and all of the former help desk employees and volunteers who all jumped onto our phone lines who worked non stop to help get all of our employees set up to work remotely, and to support everyone working at home.

The NCCC team in Nashua has been outstanding in their response to COVID-19. Patients have been and continue to remain the highest priority.

I want to give a big shout out of appreciation and awe to my colleagues on 4 West. They have been feverishly up training to become ICU level RNs and LNAs and met the challenge head on, even though it is a scary and challenging task. Special thanks to our manager, Val Blais, who has worked so hard to help everyone learn in every learning style possible and has heard out everyone's fears and concerns patiently and with compassion. Much love to everyone on 4 West :)

Thank you x-ray department at Concord DH!

A huge shout out to the hard workers in the x-ray department at Concord DH. This department hardly gets any recognition for their hard work. We are exposed to potential COVID cases multiples times a day, helping these patients with the diagnosis process of being x-rayed. We are scared, we cry, we have anxiety, we are confused, we have panic attacks, we go through all the emotions of this tough time. Radiologic Technologists get disregarded and people forget that we are on the front lines. We work hard too, we come in and get the job done.

The people in this department are:
Rachel Hartford
Shannon Bond
Keith Ferland
Erin Murphy
Shelley St. Onge

I just want to say thank you to some of our nurses in IMED Tiffany, Kayla and Kelly. I have been sitting in the same room with them and listened to the numerous calls that they have been taking from our anxious and nervous patients. They have also been diligent in keeping the clinical staff safe by screening patients prior to booking them for appointments in the office. At this time these nurses have our lives in their hands and I feel like I can not be in better hands. I know these women have my back always. Thanks for all that you do!

I have been seeing Dr. Comi and Dr. Lee for several years and could not be pleased more than I am.

Thanks to all of you.

Dave

I am one of the APP's in the SICU and I wanted to pass on how proud I am of our nurses, RT's and LNA's. I have been over in the NCCU with many COVID rule out patients, and I have yet to hear any negative comments from the nurses, RT's, and LNA's during their hard shifts. [They are] constantly donning/doffing and taking care of sick patients in full PPE even with all the fear and anxiety of taking care of these patients. Yesterday I was even more impressed by my staff in another COVID rule out room with a patient transitioning to comfort care. Their family was not able to come to the hospital so the staff stayed with the patient until their last breath while the family was watching via video chat. I cannot say enough how honored I am to have the privilege of working with them.

I love you Justin!

In support of all of the essential employees at Cheshire Medical Center/DHMC, our family has decorated our front door to show our love and appreciation for each of them, with specific attention to a family member who is on the front line in the ED.
