A Family Member's Testimonial

To - Shelli - Pediatric Intensive Care Unit


Shelli's positive attitude and cheerful spirit was so important and essential in keeping my chin and strength up so that I could be strong for my son. Her bedside manner and excellent professional skills made it obvious that being a PICU nurse was truly her calling. Following her footsteps, all of the PICU and all other OLOL staff were very helpful and allowed our stay to be very comfortable. Thank you for allowing your staff to be "human" first and then professionals. Thanks too for all the prayers.
