By Kathryn Johnson associated press writer Macon a. A the Petite dark haired foreign nurses at the medical Center of Central Georgia Are sometimes confused by their patients Southern drawl. And patients occasionally feel the same about the nurses soft accents. Such barriers however Are overcome by the big warm smiles and bedside manners of the 25 Young nurses a 20 of them from the Philippines. A patients love them a said Damon d. King administrator of the Hospital which selected the girls last Spring after careful screening of too applicants. A a they re kind empathetic and know How to give tender Loving care so important to patients a said King. A we think these Are natural traits.
