Marie is very compassionate with her patients. She prays with her patients and gives them emotional support. She had a patient who was near end of life and she graciously offered to sing to her patient to put a smile on his face. The family at bedside was very appreciative for her kindness and compassion. She spends time and has a calm demeanor with her patients, this puts ease to her patients and family. She always recognizes patients' birthdays and gathers the staff to sing happy birthday to the patient. She is a truly exceptional nurse and a great role model. Houston Methodist San Jacinto is blessed to have her.
