After being at Children’s for over a week, we have had our share of ups and downs. Ginny is one of our favorite nurses. She is the rock star but makes my daughter feel like one. She is kind, patient, understanding, caring, compassionate, and truly loves helping others. She has taken the time to get to know my daughter, to find out what is important and challenging to her. She listens and is helpful. She goes out of her way to make my daughter feel comfortable and safe.
