They became immediate friends because of Jessica's humor and friendliness.

Jessica is a wonderful nurse. She paid a lot of attention to my son who has special needs. He is very frightened of everyone who enters the room but with her, they became immediate friends because of her humor and friendliness. She even took time out of her day to play a quick game of Wii U that she kindly let him win. But I just asked him and he said she won the race. While racing, they talked about movies, while also reminding him the doctors want him to drink so he gets to go home. I just asked him what he loved about this nurse and he says, "because she is now my new girlfriend." Wow, that says something because that friendship happened within 30 minutes. So welcome to the family you are loved and thank you for making a scared boy comfortable.
