"Laura is an exceptional charge nurse to work under. She always has a friendly smile and tone
when speaking to staff. She is very comforting to our patients as well. She goes beyond her duties
and takes “call” when needed. She helps admit patients in the AIR area and administers moderate
sedation in procedures when she notices help is needed. Our department is very efficient and runs
smoothly because of Laura as our charge and our doctors appreciate everything she does. Laura
is a great example of what CGH Medical Center stands for."
