Maui Health System nurses deserve raise

I was recently admitted to Maui Health System, which runs Maui Memorial Medical Center. During my three-week stay as a patient recovering from a surgery, I witnessed the extreme hours each nurse endured.

The special treatment I received was absolutely amazing. They showed true compassion, aloha and kindness in helping me to heal. They are so deserving of a raise.

I wish the union and administration would only see for themselves how hard they work, sacrificing their families over their patients.

My family and I will always be grateful for the care they gave me, and all the other patients on the fourth floor of Molokai South.

It was very emotional as I was released to go home. The bond between us shed both tears of joy and sadness. Today, we remain close friends.

I continue to pray for all the hard-working nurses that the union also works just as hard as they do!
