She spent a lot of time helping our family understand exactly how we can make him better and told us to never give up hope.

My father has been in and out of numerous hospitals for years. He has a history of drug use and alcoholism, but has been sober for nearly four years. This hospital has done a great job of not letting that affect their care towards him. More specifically, there is Angela.

Angela spent a lot of time getting to know him as a person, rather than just his history of bad choices. She showed him that she genuinely cared about all aspects of his health and well-being. She treated him as if he was a dear friend. This also meant she had to be strict and blunt with him on taking care of himself outside of the hospital. She spent a lot of time helping our family understand exactly how we can make him better and told us to never give up hope. She is extremely knowledgeable and informative. She is a true reflection of what every amazing nurse should want to be.
