We’re honoring Nurses Week with one of thousands of stories about our patients and their families as told by nurse Lisa Trotta, who works in our hospital and cares for children with brain, spinal cord and other serious neurological injuries. Lisa has been a nurse at Kennedy Krieger Institute for more than 30 years. Michael was a seriously injured 12 year old boy who was determined to recover and get back to his life. Lisa and Michael’s care team were determined to help. It’s children like Michael, and their families, that inspire us every day.
We salute all nurses, and especially those who care for children. Thank you for all you do.
