When her fiancé, Rusty Maddox, passed away on April 11, 2019, Amber Hand was devastated. She wanted to make sure people remembered him for the kind, strong person he was. She also wanted to honor those who took such good care of him while he was hospitalized. So, she wrote a touching tribute to Rusty’s care team in our Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU).
“No matter how people feel, the staff, doctors, and nurses should be cherished more. They were there for my journey and heart-break. They were kind and compassionate. The MICU NURSES were so caring and straight to the point of what was going to happen. Please thank everyone in the MICU.”
