Anna’s patient’s family had experienced a loss in their family just days before.  The family was exhausted and emotional.  They decided to withdraw life support. As soon as life support was withdrawn, the family said their goodbyes and left the room.  The patient did not pass away immediately.  Instead, she fought for a little while.  Anna made a point to be with her, by her side, until her last breath.  Any nurse can give care for her patients and their family, but a nurse with compassion and care is a quality that cannot be taught.  Anna displayed true care and compassion for her patient until the end.  This is what DAISY is all about.
