This is Andrea, one of our wonderful nurses at QCH. During National Nursing Week, we’re taking a moment to reflect just how remarkable, compassionate and dedicated our nurses are, now more than ever. With Andrea, one of her patients was so grateful for her dedication that they chose to honour her as a Champion of Care.
“Andrea went above and beyond what could possibly be expected of a nurse. She treated us like family and helped us with all of our concerns. She made sure that we always felt comfortable pressing the call bell, and when we did she was there to help us within seconds. She taught us more in a few hours than we learned the rest of our time in the hospital. She helped us feel comfortable and confident to take our baby home and be the best parents we could be. It was a truly exceptional experience having Andrea as our nurse. People like Andrea are what make our Canadian healthcare system top-notch, and they deserve all the recognition in the world. Thank you.”
