Nyla Petrahai, RN, Intermediate Care Area
"Nyla had an elderly patient with a fractured femur who was not a candidate for surgery. The patient was declining clinically, confused, in immense pain and calling out. Nyla stayed by her side for the majority of 12 hours, comforting her. The resident called the family and ordered comfort measures for the patient. Nyla took the time to do whatever she could for this patient. She even rubbed her back and sang "You Are My Sunshine". The next night I transported this patient to the oncology floor where her hospice care continued. When the PCT and I arrived to the floor to bring the patient, we followed Nyla's lead, we closed the door and sang "You Are My Sunshine". This is just one of the many examples that make Nyla such an amazing, compassionate, caring professional. Her integrity is an example for all of us."
