Mesquite Nurse Transforms Patient’s Room in Random Act of Kindness

During this time of year many people are often filled with the spirit of giving.

For Epic nurse, Rick Merriman, with our Mesquite, Texas, office, that is certainly the case.

Rick has been providing care for Alexis, a pediatric skilled nursing patient, for the past four months.

Recently, Rick decided that he would like to help Alexis’ family transform their son’s room into his own mini “man cave”.

To accomplish this, Rick purchased superhero posters, new curtains and a new Spiderman bedspread for Alexis’ room. He also helped the family reorganize the room to optimize space, and he helped steam clean the carpets.

Alexis’ family is very appreciative of Rick’s help and say that they really notice a positive difference in their son under Rick’s care.

Thanks, Rick, for going above and beyond for our patients! Happy Holidays!
