“The particular nurse, Brandy, went above and beyond her call of duty when I sought her out after having a panic attack due to flashbacks. The sympathy/empathy shown means so much to me, and I imagine always will be ingrained in my mind. Not only did she provide me with a positive distraction, but she stayed with me until I felt comfortable.”

“I arrived at Vandy Psych lost and scared. I felt insane and alone. All alone. I have had multiple stays in psych facilities, but this was a new caliber. I’ve met a great deal of doctors and nurses but the nurse I would like to spotlight is Ashley. I did not feel like a job that needed doing or a patient needing care, but a friend that needed help. I didn’t talk much, but when I did, she listened. She was quick to provide the care and help I needed. She never seems annoyed or too busy.”
