Short Stay/ICU
Redwood Memorial Hospital
Fortuna, California
United States

A patient of Rita’s said in his DAISY nomination, “Rita took care of me in Intensive Care and as an out-patient. She is very professional and keeps her patients at ease. She is a great person, very friendly, and takes care of her patient’s every need.” A member of the Redwood team shared this story in a DAISY nomination, “Rita was very compassionate towards an elderly patient who was anxious concerning his wife. Rita spoke calmly to him. When he was ready to be discharged, his wife went out to get the car and fell. She was taken to the E.R. Rita stayed calm, made sure the patient’s wife was cared for, reassured her husband, called the family, and was still there to care for another patient in a compassionate caring fashion.”
