Sheryl, RN

Inpatient Hemodialysis Nurse

Sheryl, RN, Inpatient Hemodialyis NurseDuring her first 10 years at South Shore Hospital, Sheryl, RN, worked in the cardiac care unit. That experience, she says, prepared her well for the subsequent decade she has spent as an inpatient hemodialysis nurse.

“It's a complicated specialty,” she says of her role working with patients whose blood must be mechanically filtered and cleaned. “My patients need dialysis and they tend to have other medical complications, so I draw on a range of nursing skills and knowledge. I enjoy the close nurse-patient relationship and the fact that we can get to know our patients so well.” As a college freshman, Sheryl was inspired to pursue a nursing career by a novel in which a nurse's care and compassion helped a wounded war veteran's recovery. “The message in that book has never left me,” she says.

“The patients I meet aren't just people in a bed. It's gratifying to talk with them and get to know about their lives. I take encouragement from them.”
