Kimber was caring for a little girl who fell and broke her arm on the way to see Frozen on Ice. The patient was still in her Ana costume when Kimber received her from the night nurse. When the patient was called to the operating room the dress would not fit over the splint and had to be cut off. The patient was devastated. Kimber called her husband, who was on his way to Walmart and asked him to pick up a new Ana dress for the patient. Kimber’s husband brought the new dress up to Kimber and she placed it in the patient’s room for when the patient returned from surgery. When the patient returned her eyes lit up and she was so excited and thankful. Kimber truly is a 10! She exemplifies what a pediatric nurse should be.
