I started my career in the world of paediatrics in this hospital and I decided to stay here. For 6 years I was moving around the different hospitalisation wards, Semi-critical unit and PICU. I then joined the Palliative care team, and now I am one of the home healthcare nurses. We attend to complex chronic patients in their homes, particularly those with mechanical ventilation and users of home parenteral nutrition devices. "What I like most about my work is being able to attend to the needs of our children in their homes, surrounded by their families."
