Patsy Roxas


For most people their pets are family. Critical care nurse Patsy Roxas understood this and moved mountains to make sure one critically ill patient got to say goodbye to his three dogs. Since the pets were not service dogs they were not allowed in the patient’s room. Determined to make a difference, Patsy worked to arrange a special outdoor reunion between the man and his best friends. Afterwards, his end-of-life care lasted longer than anyone expected. By giving her patient more time with his dogs, the rest of his family got a little more time with someone they loved. Patsy may not be an actual saint, but to one family and a few dogs, she came pretty close.
