“That’s why I do what I do,” said Jones, “make sure no one gets an infection. Whether it’s our patients, whether it’s staff or the families that come in. “
Denise Pudinkski, the Chief Nurse Executive at MWPH, said she is not surprised that five of the top seven pediatric nurses came from MWPH.
“These nurses come in here every day and they give their heart and soul not only for the patients but also for the families,” said Pudinksi.
