Everyone has a story about a nurse who is extra special — the one who went the extra mile for you or a family member. I have such a story. This nurse had worked at our community hospital for 40 years.
She started at St. Anthony’s, Las Vegas then Northeastern Regional, and finally Alta Vista Regional Hospital. She’s the one who all the other nurses would call to start an IV on an infant, child, IV drug abuser, or emaciated adult because no one else had the expertise.
