Linda Butters

During my recent ER visit [at Bronson Battle Creek], I was met by and cared for by a most wonderful nurse. Her name was Bonnie. From the moment she met me she took control over my health as well as my mental well-being. I was suffering from asthma problems causes by environmental factors, along with symptoms related to hyperventilation. Bonnie was calm, soothing, pleasant, caring, educational, understanding and very intelligent. She treated me with dignity and helped to keep me focused so I could recover more quickly.

When she's in the room [at the Bronson Battle Creek Emergency Department], she had great bedside manners. I feel she really cares. She listens to everything I had to say. And was never rude or not polite. She deserves an award for her care and dedication for her patients. She is an amazing nurse who shows extra special care. Thank you! And what a great hospital.
