Darlene advocated for my brother and recommended to the physician that he be extubated and given the opportunity to respond.

Nurse Darlene exemplifies the epitome of care. My brother is alive today because of her exceptional nursing skills. My 46-year-old brother was in the ICU and intubated with a very grim outlook. Based on her assessment skills and dedicated time spent with him, she advocated for my brother and recommended to the physician that he be extubated and given the opportunity to respond. In turn, my brother has progressed and rebounded tremendously.

My family and I will forever be grateful to Nurse Darlene. Her years of experience and dedication to nursing have changed all of our lives. It is clear that it is not just a job for her. She deeply cares for her patients, as well as the entire family unit. She has gone above and beyond to comfort my brother and keep our family well informed. We will be eternally grateful to Darlene.
