Now that I am home and I hope that your whole staff has recovered from too much of me, I would like you to know what a marvelous experience I had at the Elms. I had never been in a facility such as yours, but, of course, I have read all the inspection reports on similar facilities in Monmouth County. I was at the Elms when you underwent the state inspection and I could have told them you were going to pass in advance.
I don’t know where to start in my praise of your incredible nurses: Jodi, Bonnie and others come to mind, plus of course, Stan the Man. In the kitchen, Jackie, Evelyn and Esther were always helpful, even when I was a pain in the neck. Of course, Meg is a saint. She enabled me to continue serving the people despite being very ill and institutionalized. I still cannot believe that I was re-elected in June, running my campaign from my room. On my last day, several people, including Dr. Nasra, told me I will never be forgotten at the Ems. I just hope that experience was a as positive for them as it was for me.
