To Whom It May Concern

This letter is my sincere recommendation for Sara Chris who has worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at ABC Hospital for three years. As her immediate supervisor, I found her an active and driven individual who performs all assignments and patient care activities with devotion and smile.

Besides being a friendly personality, Sara can take control of emergency situations and the ability to present creative ideas regarding personal care and hygiene issues. She has developed several ADL plans for our hospital that resulted in increased patient satisfaction.

Specifically, she is very expert in answering signal lights to resolve patient needs, bathing and dressing patients, providing and collecting food trays, feeding to patients who require assistance, and transporting patients and helping patients exercise and walk. Also, she is very expert in accurately taking and recording vital signs.

Sara was a proven asset to our hospital, and she has the ability to make the most of her potential anywhere she work. I highly recommend Sara for employment at your facility and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors. In case of any query or concern, I can be reached at the phone number or email address given below.
