He is hard of hearing, so she ensured he could hear and understand everything she was telling him. He had a lot of confusion while he was there, and she remained patient and friendly to keep him safe. Her knowledge of medications and care made us comfortable that we are getting top care. She even let me know the next steps for care after discharge. We feel fortunate that Rita was our nurse.”
