Michael Carlin, a registered practical nurse at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, received honourable mention from the judging panel of the Nightingale award after being nominated by the parents of a former patient.

Laurie Rossi is quoted in a Toronto Star article saying “We feel our son’s positive attitude towards his therapy and re-learning simple tasks were greatly encouraged by Michael. He praised Mark often, causing Mark to try even harder to improve both physically and cognitively.”
