The only positive thing I can say for the GW cardiac care was the NIGHT Nurse, I believe to be Kristin something. To wake up and see he smile was a treat. She took the best care of me, which was excellent yet I can not verify her name or even find where she has been recognized by the George Washington ICU. If you lose her you have nothing.
