In the nomination of Robin Margrave, Mini Thomas wrote:

I was discharging a patient after his two weeks long hospitalization. Prior to going home, he had one specific request that he wants to say goodbye to nurse Robin. Once Robin came to see him, he continued to keep his flat affect but gave her a hug and thanked her for everything. Robin didn't know what she did specifically for him. But, it didn't surprise me, since I have heard similar request from multiple patients/families asking for Robin. It is hard to say if it is her compassion, humor, humbleness or the advanced and innovative nursing skill which makes her a special nurse, because she's got it all. Robin brings so much energy and enthusiasm to work that it is hard to be grumpy or complaining around her. Her presence brings healing in to the unit and joy to those who are around her. Robin is the best educator/preceptor to the nusing students and new nurses since they just don't learn the policies and procedures, but what it takes to care for a patient with all your heart.
