They spent extra time making the patient feel comfortable and cared for.

Barbara was floated to EMCU on a busy Sunday with a heavy patient load. Midway through the shift she received a new admission who had a very severe case of head lice. Barbara, with the help of her PCA, Christa, very professionally and empathetically spent over 1 hour bathing and providing head lice treatment to the patient. They washed the patient's hair, bathed her, cleaned under her finger nails, combed and applied the medication with such compassion and friendliness. They spent extra time making the patient feel comfortable and cared for. Thank you, Barbara!
