As a parent, it’s never easy to see your child in pain. I would take all her pain and suffering if I could. So this hospital visit was very difficult for me. All of the staff here were very professional and knowledgeable, we were definitely confident in their ability to perform their duties adequately. The nurse that stood out most was Vicky. She really seemed to love her job and the patients under her care. I’ve worked at a hospital before and have seen some pretty amazing doctors and nurses as it pertains to the intellectual side of their jobs. Vicky is similar to these doctors and nurses. What sets her apart is her ability to calm the nerves of terrified parents and her ability to make a child who is in pain smile. I wish more people had her passion for their job.
