National Nurse's Day is Wednesday, May 6th and KISS 106 along with Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union, want to say THANK YOU to all the nurses in our community. We'll shine a spotlight on some of those nurses several times a day, all week long!

We will shout out a different nurse 3 times a day during the week of May 4th. These are all nurses that have been nominated by you and other folks in the Tri-State.

This spotlight is shining on TERESA HEDGE! Teresa works in the West Hall at Transcendent Health Care. She was nominated by Dennis Jones who says "Teresa has worked at Transcendent in Owensville, IN for a total of 11yrs. Caring for the elderly of the Tri-State is a different kind of nursing. Where she builds relationships with her patients. Showing them unconditional love & maintaining their dignity & lifting their spirits during their last days. Death is unfortunately part of her job. So, she does everything she can within her ability to show her patients love, to help them laugh & to fight for them as one of their strongest advocates when it's required. Which during this pandemic, she's done more than once. Which has helped adjust policy & procedure within the facility. Keeping the entire patient roster list Covid-19 free. The Administrator tells everyone, don't sneeze around Teresa. She'll make you leave the property. He's saying this jokingly, but serious none the less."

From all of us here at KISS 106 and Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union, we say THANK YOU Teresa for all you do each day! We appreciate you!
