My name is Deanna Mast and I work with Brittnee Madrigal at Centerpoint Medical Center.
Brittnee, one of our nurses on the Telemetry unit at Centerpoint Medical Center, recognized that our homeless population was in need of clothing when they left the hospital. Prior to the beginning of winter, she used her own time and money to set up a clothing closet on our unit. She then used the CTMC nursing Facebook page to make other nurses aware of the closet. That way if their discharging patient had the same need, they could go in the closet and take clothes to keep warm. We are extremely fortunate to have Brittnee on our team. This is just one example of the many times Brittnee has gone above and beyond to meet our patients' needs.
