PICU Nurse Shares Experiences During the Holidays
Hi I'm Chester Hunt, Jr., RN, a staff nurse here in PICU. I've been working here at Children's Hospital for almost 25 years. Prior to coming here, I have 35 years of military service. I wanted to come here to have an impact. I saw the need.
Some of the children have things that they have to deal with for the rest of their lives. I want to do my best to go ahead and prepare them to deal with these. I try to tell the children that when they leave her, they have to be strong and they have to work hard.
Having been here for so many years, I've worked during a lot of holidays. We actually get this time of the year where we get busy - really busy. We decorate and try to sing to the children.
The children are going to be here, and if they're here, they need someone who will care for them. So, if they need me, I'm here.
