CN II, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

In the nomination of Jill Parillo, the following was written:

"Jill has been a nurse in our unit even before she had her own family to bless. Jill affects the life of every one of the babies in our unit. Not one baby leaves our unit without Jill's special touch. When Jill comes to work she learns of any new babies that have been admitted and then she proceeds to create a personalized name card and ID card for the baby's bedside. Each name card is different and reflects the personality of the baby's name and gender. Our families always comment on how special the cards are and many tell us how they will display the name card in the baby's bedroom at home. We have some families that will decorate their baby's room around the beautiful name card Jill has created."
