Liz was with us and knew when to give the family privacy, as well as, when to care for my son.

This wonderful angel stayed with my family and me for two days.  My son was extremely ill and I did not understand how ill.  Liz was a wonderful patient advocate and helped everyone in the family understand how ill and the decisions we needed to make. We had to go from a full code to a DNR to taking my son off life support.  Liz was with us and knew when to give the family privacy, as well as, when to care for my son.  I cannot express in words how knowledgeable, gentle and kind she was.

Liz’s clinical skills were outstanding and she responded to every emergency and kept my son comfortable.  I was impressed with the way that all the nurses on this unit worked together and handled the alarms that needed to be taken care of and the medicines that needed to be given.  Liz explained everything and gave the family time to digest the information.  I will never forget her gentleness, kindness, skill knowledge and name.
