    Lindsey Nidiffer

    Lindsey Nidiffer, BSN, RN-CCRN


    A mother’s oldest child was a patient in the Burn Center with 50% TBSA burns, and she also had a one-year-old with her. The patient’s mother wanted to be present for a procedure at her son’s bedside, but she didn’t have access to childcare or a local support system. Lindsey, a generous caregiver, came to the rescue on her day off to care for the mother’s one-year-old, allowing the patient’s mother to attend the procedure.
