Despite being bedbound, on oxygen and multiple IV tubes, Trevor was able to provide a small ray of sunshine to this patient and family, both literally and figuratively.

Trevor is extremely committed to providing the best care to all of his patients and their families.  I recently joked to a colleague after leaving a patient’s room that I was sick of hearing from families how great he is, how they now think of him as family and how supportive he has been throughout some of their most difficult days.  A particular example of Trevor’s compassion and commitment occurred a few weeks ago when the cloudy skies of Syracuse broke for a particularly warm and a sunny spring day.  A patient had been admitted a few weeks prior with a particularly grim prognosis, she was bedbound, having difficulty with pain management and it was unknown if she would ever leave the hospital, let alone ever get some fresh air and be able to feel the warm sun on her face.  A suggestion was made to try and get her outside onto the Pomeroy Patient Patio.  Trevor swung into action and within a short period of time the patient, her husband, son and niece were outside, joking that the only thing that could make this better was a margarita.  Despite being bedbound, on oxygen and multiple IV tubes, Trevor was able to provide a small ray of sunshine to this patient and family, both literally and figuratively.  I am sure many of Trevor’s coworkers could share countless other stories of how he has bettered the hospital experience for many of our patients.
