In January a dialysis patient had a “near code” in the parking garage. The patient’s mother called the dialysis unit and the dialysis nurse called Ana to cover that unit while they investigated the problem. Ana designated me to cover her patients on 3East while she made sure that the patients in the dialysis unit where okay.
Before coming to 3East fulltime, Ana spent half her budgeted hours on 3E and the other in dialysis within the last year. She switched fulltime to cover only 3East. No longer a “physical” dialysis nurse, she counts to display a genuine concern for al of the patients, past and present. Her heart remains all over this hospital. It was also very impressionable watching her care for and showing deep concerns for patient on both units. Ana’s compassionate for patients and their families is always shown.
On Sunday, May 11th was Mother’s Day and Nurse Christina Forcine made a mother’s day card with Mable’s hand and foot prints. Mother stated she really appreciated the nice and sweet gesture from Christina. Mother stated Christina goes above and beyond her duties when she takes care of her daughter Mable. Mother was very impressed and wanted to extend her appreciation to Christina.
