Walden Behavioral Care

Ellen Miller, Walden Behavioral Care
It is without hesitation I nominate this very special nurse. Ellen Miller is a staff nurse on the psychiatric unit of our hospital. She makes our patients comfortable and is often cited positively in the patient satisfaction surveys. She easily forms bonds of trust with her patients. She demonstrates a real empathy for patients and shows genuine joy in their successes even if they are small ones. She spends the extra time needed to put patients at ease and is sensitive to their anxieties and insecurities. She is often sought out by new and seasoned nurses and serves as a role model for others. –Nominated by Lucille Force
