Girl Scout Troop 781 from Polytechnic School in Pasadena

In February, Girl Scout Troop 781 from Polytechnic School in Pasadena visited our hospital, bearing snacks, treats and hand-made cards to show appreciation for our nurses. The visit was part of their Silver Award project, entitled “Thank a Nurse.” The girls, Aleena Bhatti, Ellie Fay and Maya Kenny – who are all 8th graders – toured 6 West, critical care unit and the emergency department with carts full of goodies.

“These girls are so generous,” said Lorraine Nagano, RN, 6 West. “At the end of a long shift, it was such a nice surprise to see their carts and have a break.”

Prior to visiting the hospital, the girls spoke to over 180 elementary school students about the importance of nursing. They collected almost 300 thank-you notes, bringing a deeper appreciation and awareness of all thewonderful ways that nurses help patients.
