"... eyes were rimmed with black eyeliner, which had smudged down her cheeks. Attempting diplomacy, Penny said, “Today was a strain, wasn’t it?” The young woman’s badge read: Kerri Kenyon, Housekeeping. Kerri concentrated her big racoon eyes on Penny. “Are you new here, ..."

"... said, “Today was a strain, wasn’t it?” The young woman’s badge read: Kerri Kenyon, Housekeeping. Kerri concentrated her big racoon eyes on Penny. “Are you new here, too?” “I was in orientation with you this afternoon.” Penny pointed to her own badge. “I’ll be working ..."
"...“In laundry. Beside the elevator in the basement.” Kerri’s chin quivered as she spoke. “They all laughed at me. They asked for our suggestions on cleaning bathrooms so I told them that at home I run my commode seat through the dishwasher once a week to get it really clean.” She wiped her eyes. ..."

Chapter 9: Chapter Nine
"...to burn calories by climbing the steps to Oncology on the fourth floor. The elevator and the stairwell were side by side, and as Penny approached, the housekeeper with a commode-seat fixation called her name, beckoning and holding open the elevator door. Penny sneaked a look at Kerri’s name badge before she was enveloped by her arms and her flowery fragrance. ..."

"... she was enveloped by her arms and her flowery fragrance. “Oooo,” Kerri cooed. “You’ve had your hair cut—I love it! Come in here with us, Penny. My boss wants to show me some stuff, then we can ride up together.” Although not an easy hugger, Penny enjoyed the goodwill and ..."
"...The elevator door slid shut, but they remained in the basement. Kerri’s boss pulled out the red STOP button to hold the elevator stationary, then bent down and opened a small compartment on the wall beside the emergency phone. Reaching within, she depressed a button and the rear of the elevator slid open to reveal a large room filled with ..."
12.
"... Penny restrained the door while Kerri and her boss moved three IV poles, two suction machines, and a vaporizer out of the way, then shoved a cooling-blanket tank onto the lift. Penny pointed to a metal door at the other end of the storage room. “Where does that go?” Kerri ..."
14.
"... the other end of the storage room. “Where does that go?” Kerri displayed her knowledge with enthusiasm. “It goes behind the morgue and connects to a tunnel that goes out to the maintenance building behind the hospital.” “I’m not very observant,” Penny said. “I’ve never ..."
"...“I doubt if many people know about the elevator room,” the supervisor said. After the back of the elevator snapped shut, she depressed the red button, then opened the front door and turned to Kerri. “Carry this machine up to Four Main. I want to check today’s linen delivery while I’m down here.” Penny watched the woman enter a doorway marked LINEN across the basement hallway. ..."

"... hallway. “So now you know what my job is: moving heavy equipment.” Kerri giggled and depressed the fourth floor button. “I can hardly believe we’ve been here almost three months! Do you like Oncology? I’d think it would be depressing to work up there.” “Oh no, ..."
23.
"... to get the hang of computer charting, and now I have to go to an in-service on how to retrieve lab and radiology results.” “Does everybody get along?” Kerri asked. “Sure. There’s no survival-of-the-fittest attitude like there is out there on the medical/surgical floors–-we help ..."
28.
"... When the elevator door opened on the fourth floor, Penny helped roll the large cooling device out into the hall, then waved to Kerri and entered the staff lounge with a renewed sense of self-worth at being part of a medical community where everything was up to date and top of the line. ..."

Chapter 13: Chapter Thirteen
"...Barb was working at a computer when Penny pulled on her jacket, so Penny descended the steps alone. In the basement, the door opening onto the parking lot was barricaded and a sign pointed down the hall to the left. Kerri, her eyes thickly rimmed with mascara, talked with two other housekeepers at a window beside the door. ..."

"... her. “This is the door I’ve always used.” “Come on, I’ll show you,” Kerri said, walking back toward the elevator, around a corner and down the corridor past the classrooms where they had orientation, and past a door marked Morgue. “Didn’t you tell me that elevator-room door ..."
85.
"... of the morgue. That hall goes by the back of the morgue down in the tunnel.” At the end of the corridor, Kerri pushed open an outside door to reveal three plumbing and electric trucks and a swarm of workmen. “What’s going on?” “The sewer’s backed up and while they’re here, ..."
87.
"... “The sewer’s backed up and while they’re here, they’re moving the air return for the heating/cooling unit away from the loading dock to keep exhaust fumes from delivery trucks out of the hospital.” Kerri placed her mouth close to Penny’s ear. “Can you keep a secret?” ..."
88.
"... trucks out of the hospital.” Kerri placed her mouth close to Penny’s ear. “Can you keep a secret?” Penny nodded, expecting to hear that Kerri was engaged or pregnant. “A fetus was blocking the sewer line. They think some patient must have flushed it,” Kerri whispered. On ..."

"... you keep a secret?” Penny nodded, expecting to hear that Kerri was engaged or pregnant. “A fetus was blocking the sewer line. They think some patient must have flushed it,” Kerri whispered. On the drive home, Penny considered the night. A baby flushed down the commode explained ..."

Chapter 21: Chapter Twenty-One
"...“I’ll tell you what’s good,” said Kerri Kenyon, one of the first people Penny had met at Jackson Medical Center. “Ask them to put a slice of cheese on top of those butter beans. It melts down and...” Kerri smacked her lips, turning her head side-to-side with each smack, then brushed bangs ..."

"... each smack, then brushed bangs out of her eyes. The girl’s hair was bright copper. As they took a corner booth together, Penny averted her gaze from Kerri’s hair. “So, how have you been?” “Hanging in there—but I’m tired of working in laundry.” Kerri glanced around the ..."
"...“Hanging in there—but I’m tired of working in laundry.” Kerri glanced around the room. “There’s going to be an opening on Fourth, and I’ve applied for it. The woman I work with downstairs is a snit. You know? Thinks she’s better than anybody else! Today at break we were having fun—everybody telling their favorite ..."
17.
"... never thought about it before...sneezing, I guess.” “I won’t mention some of the things they said,” Kerri cackled. “Hey, I hear there’s a celebrity patient in your department. Who is it, really?” “I have no idea. This is my first night back since last week.” ..."

-------------------------------------------
"...Penny reentered 409 and Maria handed her Mr. Logan’s vital signs. “Don’t tell me,” Maria said. “I already know Leroy’s sending me to Third. Kerri Kenyon will bring you some uniforms when she gets off break.” Maria turned to Mr. Logan. “What you need is more flowers in here! I’ll try and find some for you, Nealy.” ..."
94.
"... I’ll have somebody call you.” The elevator opened and Kerri smiled at them from behind a laundry cart, stacked high with blue tops and bottoms. “They must not have distributed scrubs for weeks!” she said, pushing the cart toward the staff room. Penny sat on the bed beside Flossie ..."
163.
"... page Housekeeping for you.” Carina balanced her checkbook while Penny loaded a fresh pot of coffee and then joined Kerri, who was cleaning 403. “How’re you coming with it?”, Penny asked her from the hallway. “It already smells better.” “You destroyed it,” Kerri ..."

"... who was cleaning 403. “How’re you coming with it?”, Penny asked her from the hallway. “It already smells better.” “You destroyed it,” Kerri said. “They make you do everything, don’t they Kerri?” Penny entered the room. “Do you work in the laundry too?” “No. I ..."

"... from the hallway. “It already smells better.” “You destroyed it,” Kerri said. “They make you do everything, don’t they Kerri?” Penny entered the room. “Do you work in the laundry too?” “No. I just brought up your stuff. I used to work down there, though; sometimes I ..."
167.
"... Kerri looked tired. Sparkling studs outlined her ears: blue, pink, green, and red, and crystal beads dangled from her earlobes, enclosing her face in question marks. Penny watched Kerri work, ­contemplating an idea. “Do you remember when Dr. Wiseman had an accident on the stairs?” ..."
"...“You know how they are around here,” Kerri said. “Anyway, nobody asked me. I was new and I didn’t know his name, but later, when the Physicians Directory came out, I saw that he was Dr. Scales.... Okay, I’m finished! How does it look?” Kerri waited for Penny’s answer as though the ..."

-------------------------------------------
"...Penny peered across the congested room to the metal door on the opposite wall, which Kerri had said led to an underground tunnel and the maintenance building. Claustrophobia invaded her mind. If the door was locked she would be stuck in this God-forsaken room. Her mouth was parched and her throat constricted as she threaded her way through IV poles and bedside ..."
