On Tuesday Oct 16 , 2018 Cardiac Critical Care Nurse , Christopher Szafnicki finished his shift at our Cardiovascular Interventional/surgical department at Cedars-SInai hospital to attend his brothers wedding. Chris recently joined us from Atlanta and is a valued member of our team . He didn’t make it there that night ! He was sideswiped while riding his bike ! Emergency response ambulances returned Chris in critical condition to our intensive care unit on ventilator having sustained multiple fractures including facial fractures . Chris has undergone surgery and is off his ventilator and healing . Let’s help him as he heals and gets back on his feet again . HELP HEAL A HEALER so he can be there with us as we care for our patients with heart disease as he himself has a heart of gold .
