Trish is the true meaning of a Nurse. She is an outstanding nurse that has extreme compassion and skill. As our mom was approaching the end of life, there was a lot of stress and tension. Trish was calm with sincere compassion. She took extra time to discuss phases of the end of life and she initiated those hard conversations to help prepare our family. She talked to our mom with respect as she patted her hand or rubbed her head. As each night came and Trish was on duty, we were very happy and relieved. She connected with our family. She would hug us, pray for mom, and check on her even when she was not on duty.
