A nurse in the women’s services unit, Miller has been a valued member of the nursing staff at North Fulton Hospital for 10 years. She earned her nursing degree at the Lutheran School of Nursing on the Jefferson campus of St. Alexius Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, and she worked with St. Joseph’s Hospital in St. Louis for 25 years before joining the staff at North Fulton Hospital.
“Denise is the definition of a patient advocate,” said Linda Farrow, director of women’s health services at the hospital. “She is energetic, and always ready to help our patients, no matter what they need.”
Miller was recently recognized by a patient as having made a tremendous difference in her care during her stay at the hospital.
“Denise is awesome” said the patient. “She tended to our every need and made us feel so special. By the end of our stay, she really did feel like a family member, and we will always treasure the experience. She went above and beyond the call of duty in providing high quality care to me throughout my hospitalization.”
Each month since October 2010, the hospital has honored outstanding nurses who consistently and without fail go above and beyond what is expected of them.
Instead of simply treating patients for their physical needs, these nurses treat their patients as if they were their own family members, tending to their mental and emotional needs as well. The hospital will continue to recognize these phenomenal nurses for the work that they do every day.
