A life lost, meaning found
One night while making her rounds at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene, Oregon, veteran nurse Sandra Clarke, CCRN, checked on a frail, elderly patient (one of seven she was assigned to that night) who was near death. "Will you stay with me?" the man asked in a barely audible voice. "Sure," she said, "as soon as I check on my other patients."
