I am so blessed to work with caring and compassionate nurses like Marcella who go above and beyond to back their fellow nurses up when needed.

Marcella is one of the most seasoned and amazing nurses in our unit.  I was working as charge nurse during the night shift and my dad was scheduled to have a cardiac angiogram the next morning.  I had mentioned the details about my dad’s procedure to some nurses but never asked anyone to come early.

At 5 am, Marcella showed up to work early without me even asking her to do so, knowing how stressed I was, so that I could go home early.  This was such a kind gesture on her part.  It made me love my job twice as much, as I am so blessed to work with caring and compassionate nurses like Marcella who go above and beyond to back their fellow nurses up when needed.  Words cannot explain how grateful I am to Marcella!  Thank you.
