A CNA’s story:
Crystal left her patient’s house and couldn’t shake the feeling that she needed to act.
As a Hospice Aide, Crystal had been providing care for a particular patient on a weekly basis for months. She had watched her take a sharp decline recently which resulted in daily visits. On this day, the patient wanted a cherry limeade. She talked about the cherry limeade during her bath, while she had her hair combed, and again while Crystal documented in the chart.
When Crystal left the house, she took a quick detour to pick up a special treat. The family was emotional when she arrived for the second time that day with the cherry limeade that her patient craved.
Who could have known that this would be the last thing she would eat or drink? She passed away 2 days later with her family at her side.
“We make last wishes our priority,” said Crystal. “We only get one chance to do it right.”
