Rachel went above and beyond the call of duty in caring for an MICU patient who was going home on hospice. His wife was scared to care for him, and his kids were not able to be there to assist always. Rachel went to the patient’s home, as a volunteer, on her day off to provide support and comfort for the patient and his wife. Because of Rachel’s deep compassion for this patient and his family, he was able to see his beloved dogs and allowed the dignity of dying in the comfort of his own home. Rachel is truly an extraordinary nurse!
