Published: February 27, 2023

CARSON CITY, MI – Sparrow Carson Hospital has recognized a Medical Surgical nurse for the compassionate care she provides.

Samantha Hall, RN, was nominated by the family of a patient who described her as “a fresh breath of air.”

“She came in with a smile and was comforting and kind to not only my grandma, but also us grandkids trying to comprehend what was going on. It’s nurses like Sam that are a gift from God for her patients and their families,” the nomination said.

When presented with the award, Hall said, “I just know if it were my family member, I’d want the nurse to educate me so I knew what would happen every step of the way.”
