To Whom it may concern,
It is my pleasure to write a strong letter of recommendation for Carol Hunte. As an anesthesiologist at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, I primarily work in the perioperative suite attending to trauma patients in the admission bay, directing anesthesia care in the operating room, and coordinating their safe discharge from the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). I have known Carol for about five years through our many clinical interactions in the PACU. One thing that strikes me about her is how versatile and complementary her personality is: Carol can be assertive yet she is respectful, she takes her job seriously yet has a jocular side, she may focus on clinical details yet she takes holistic care of the patient. If this isn't the whole package, I don't know what is. She's a keeper, I tell ya. As evidenced by her desire to advance her career, she is also a self-motivated professional who is eager to learn and is not afraid of change. I always enjoy working with her and have absolutely no reservations leaving my patients in her able hands when I'm tied up in the OR, because I know she will exercise good clinical judgement and always communicate her concerns with me.
Several weeks ago I came to the PACU to check on one of Carol's patients. This wasan older woman who had undergone an orthopedic procedure and who was now resting comfortably in bed with a moist towel on her forehead that was also covering her eyes. When I jokingly asked the patient if Carol was taking good care of her, she roused almost to the point of removing the towel off her eyes and emphatically replied, “Yes, she most certainly has.” Then she proceeded, “Carol is kind, compassionate, considerate and caring!” That description of Carol wasn't news to me, but it was delightful to hear such kind words about my colleague nonetheless. Like this patient, I emphatically attest that Carol, with her all-around attributes, will thrive in many clinical settings and have a profoundly positive impact on her patients' well-being.
