I met Jacquie Counsell at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis. She had been assigned to start me on dialysis. It was a few days after Thanksgiving, 2012. She continues to care for me at the Kidney Center in Yarmouth. Jacquie was very kind, professional, and supportive. With her friendly manner, she made it easier for me to start on this life-saving treatment; she even did crossword puzzles with me. Now she works in a different role but continues to share excellence in nursing. I was an R.N. for over 50 years and want to recognize all the nurses and technicians at the Kidney Center as exceptional.
