San Francisco nurse gets special song of appreciation for nurses week

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A San Francisco nurse got a huge surprise at work Monday.

"When someone's not your patient, but you stop by anyway, they're frustrated and you give them time to vent," said the lyrics written with Nelson Yee in mind.

He was the focus of a nurses week serenade at St. Mary's Medical Center for having that extra touch with patients.

"Patients write in about part of their stay here, and sometimes my name is mentioned," Yee told ABC7 News. "And so are other nurses, but this was a big one I guess. I was so surprised by this one."

Yee was honored among all the nurses at Dignity Health's four Bay Area hospitals.
