Christie said, “You won’t like this, but you’ll thank me later. Open your eyes. Do you know where you are?” I remember your voice. My daughter is still helping me fill in the blanks almost a year later. You saved my life. You would not give up. You asked to be my nurse. You allowed my daughter to cry on your shoulder in her pain. You blessed me with your love to nurse. I am grateful for you. You moved my bed close to the window, opening the blinds so I could see the sunrise and listen to Christian music. You blessed me.
Christie demonstrated excellent skills in all aspects of patient care. Took extra time to answer all my questions and her demeanor was kind, caring, patient and uplifting.
Christie is the nurse that took care of my mom the last day she was in the ICU. She explained everything that had to do with her care in detail.
*This DAISY nomination was translated from Spanish into English. Even with a language barrier Christie educated this family and they were so grateful for it.
