is letter sent to "Texas Department of Aging & Disability" and "Texas State Board of Nursing" from
patient's son on 12/29/11 regarding Your Health Team and Gaila Ellis, RN. Mr. Cook has given us permission to share his letter
I write you today to express my great appreciation and utmost
acclamation for the above referenced health care service and RN. Our family has been using Your Health Team, LLC in Kaufman
for a few years now, and I must say that I have never been less than impressed with their operation, follow up, service and
communication with our family while dealing with my aging mother. This along with the dedicated and caring service that each
of their staff has provided us to us has been exemplarily. I wish to single out one RN in particular, Ms. Gaila Ellis. My
mother had a regular scheduled visit from this RN on this past Monday morning. Mother was coming down with bronchitis (which
as you know is never a good thing with the elderly). Ms. Ellis contacted me at once and we both concurred quickly that she
should go the hospital to be on the safe side. Later that evening, she was released, and everything was thought to be under
control. After getting mother back at her home and settled that evening, I left and was to check on her at lunch the next
day. Ms. Ellis, while in the area, decided to make an unscheduled stop just to check in on mother. Thank God she ded. Mother
had a relapse as well as adverse reaction to medication that had rendered her on the floor, conscious, but unable to move
or get up. Ms. Ellis contacted me at once, as well as the ambulance service. Being so close to mothers residence, I was able
to make it there the same time the paramedics ded. I could see in Ms. Ellis's demeanor that she was just as concerned about
my mother as a family member would be. This not only touched my heart but confirmed what a great health care service we have
in Your Health Team that hires and promotes such professionals as Ms. Ellis. If it were not for the action of Ms. Ellis, checking
on mother before I was too, and taking the action that she did, there is no telling the condition that mother would be in.
Mother has since been admitted to the hospital, recovering well, and expected to be released in the next 2-3 days. Again,
my thanks and appreciation to Your Health Team and Ms. Gaila Ellis, RN. Two wonderful examples of the fine performances in
