She took time to work 1:1 with him; winning his trust.

April is a very strong and dedicated nurse.  She directs the CNA's with a sure hand without being caustic.  She handles multiple diverse situations with ease.  The most recent incident that shows her strengths involves a newer resident with dementia and a psychiatric history.  This resident was frequently striking out, refusing care, but more importantly, withdrawn and angry.  She took time to work 1:1 with him; winning his trust.  We are now able to care for this resident and he has been adjusting to the unit.
