My most sincere condolences go out to her husband and family. I was Martha's unit educator for her entire nursing career. She was a joy to work with and always completed her Healthsteam assignments on time. She received my sticky notes with a smile and completed them without complaint. She made my job easier. She will be missed in the NSICU.
