My granddaughter came in to get her PDA shunt and received an antibiotic "clindamycin" (second dose) and where I thought she was having a temper tantrum – she was actually having an allergic reaction. Nick was leaving another patient's room and passed by ours – he reacted right away! He then called the charge nurse in and he called the doctor to inform him about the situation. They gave her Benadryl and she got better. THANK YOU! That was the scariest thing that I have experienced in a long time. Godspeed!

Nick went out of his way to make my son very comfortable in his needs, helped, and explained all the medicines he was taking and why he was taking them. Nick was great at making my son feel better.
