Derek always encouraged us and made G feel important and happy during the scariest and darkest time of our lives.

G had a massive hemorrhagic stroke. After 2 weeks in a coma in the Neuro ICU (fabulous staff there as well!!) and exactly two weeks in acute care on 3 West, G spent the remaining time on 4 West/Trauma Rehab. I truly cannot think of one single bad thing to say about 4 West and the staff there, especially Derek. G is typically a tad shy and “standoffish” whereas I am more outgoing, but this time, G took to Derek immediately and G absolutely adored (still adores) him. He had an almost constant smile (Derek, well, AND G too!!) And Derek always encouraged us and made G feel important and happy during the scariest and darkest time of our lives. Derek on 4West is everything a nurse should be and more. Thank you so much, Derek and ALL of Harborview. G and I are forever touched by your kindness and grace.

*****

Derek is so positive and upbeat with patients and therapists alike. He goes the extra mile to help patients and is always open to giving and receiving input/recommendations with therapists. It's clear to everyone who works with Derek that he takes pride in the work he does and that he truly cares about patients and staff!
