When Patrick Shinoda, a nurse on the Critical Care unit at the Davis Family Heart & Vascular Center, noticed his patient was becoming depressed and frustrated, Patrick glanced out the window, and said, “It’s a beautiful day. How about we go outside?”

Veronica Rocznia, RN

I want our patients to know I care, I want to get to know them so I spend considerable time with each patient. I never want them to feel as if I am rushing when I am with them. I believe face time and personal attention will help make them feel at ease and make their recovery faster
