Emily is a very caring nurse. She is a true patient advocate. She sees the patient as a whole unit not just a person or child with a specific disease. She somehow knows all the patients not only her assigned patients by their first names and their diagnosis. She brings clothing to dress them up so they look like ready babies when their parents come to see them the next morning. With one particular patient, Baby Reimmus, she helped the family cope up during the tough times. She gave them encouragement and hopes and was there for them whenever they needed it. There was a another baby Valdez who she helped the parents came to term with the fact that their baby was dying and helped the family deal with the impending death allowing their daughter to have a peaceful death.
Recently a newborn that was 27 day old admitted to our unit with a congenital heart defect. Emily helped the family see that they had done the right thing with their baby and that they had done nothing wrong in taking care of him. Emily is a pleasure to work with. She cheers you up when you need it and she honestly cares about her patients and their families
