Sunny 98.1 and Point Loma Nazarene University are pleased to honor Gia Wendt as a recipient of our “I ♥ a Nurse” award! 

Wendt was nominated by one of her patients, who had this to say in his nomination letter...

Gia is an amazing nurse and professional caregiver.  She coordinates the care for all joint replacement patients at Coronado Hospital.  She conducts an education class that helped to prepare me for my upcoming surgery and recovery.  She gave me suggestions as to how to be in the best physical condition in order to aid in my recovery.  She managed my care every step of the way going into the surgery and post-surgery while I was in the hospital and after I went home.

She provided me with so much valuable information throughout the process that it reduced my fears and gave me a confidence in the caregivers and process that I hadn't experienced at other facilities before.  I felt as though I really had an advocate every step of the way and because it is her specialty she knew exactly what to expect and how to handle everything that came my way.  

I felt safe in her hands and her compassion and caring manner was very comforting to me.

Congratulations Gia Wendt from Sunny 98.1 and Point Loma Nazarene University!
