I recently floated to 2East. Not knowing the floor well I was prepared to have a crazy night. I was pleased with the team I received, but most of all I was appreciative of the help I constantly received from Rico. Rico was in charge but seemed to have a team of his own. He helped everyone from wound care to admissions and was always asking who needed help. My patient was scheduled to have surgery and Rico was there to assist me with every step needed to prepare the patient and parent. I asked some nurses who were there that night if Rico was always so helpful? They all agreed that Rico is always there to lend a hand and his expert advice.
I knew 2East was a very busy floor but with Rico there I felt that everything was going smoothly. By the end of the shift I was exhausted but Rico was there with a smile and sill willing to assist. As a guest to 2East I felt a part of a team and thanks to Rico and the rest of the team that night I will gladly return.
