CVICU team members at the Infirmary were recognized as Service Heroes for the displaying the value of EXCELLENCE.
The team was nominated by the wife of a patient who had been transferred to the Infirmary after a massive heart attack and heart failure.
The patient was immediately taken into surgery with Dr. Bauer to receive an Impella, and after weeks of being in CVICU, he recovered.
“I have been a nurse for 35 years. I have never seen such great care given. The nurses were wonderful to my husband and to my family. The nurses amazed me with their knowledge and expertise. Their compassion and kindness were such a blessing, but I also want to thank his doctors, the nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and the chaplain.”
