How an Oncology Nurse Made me Feel Safe in the Infusion Room

Extraordinary Healer®, Extraordinary Healer® Vol. 15, Volume 15,

A patient details how her oncology nurse always made her feel safe no matter how overwhelming her workload may have been.

I nominate Patty Garcia, B.S.N., RN, as my choice for an outstanding nurse. She is compassionate, kind, attentive and friendly. Patty is always available to everyone who needs help. I feel very safe and cared for when I'm in the infusion room. She's never too busy to help. She deserves this award more than anyone.
