A Patient’s Daughter About Hospice Nurses, Queens

* Names have been added or changed to protect privacy.

“My mom was tenderly cared for by VNSNY hospice nurses over her last few days. Since then, I have been comforted by the memories. Sometimes, I’ve even thought they were angels, especially since the first nurse came to the door at 2 AM on a Sunday morning. As a nurse myself, I am so proud of you all—and as a daughter, I am forever grateful.”  —Naomi, a hospice caregiver (and nurse) from Queens
