I am sorry to hear of Loretta’s passing. I worked with her for many years in the NewbornSpecial Care Unit at Yale New Haven Hospital. it was always a pleasure to work with Loretta. She was very kind & gentle in her care for the babies. I always was reassured working with her because I knew the babies would be well cared for. God has called another nurse to heaven. My sincere condolences to your family. I know she will be missed.
