Routine Hydration & Covered Services
For sick Bambini Peds patients whose parents hope to avert a visit to the hospital emergency room, Maria is often able to start IV hydration, antibiotics, and other medications depending on her availability. With not only her experience as both an ICU and pediatric nurse (along with a $2000 vein finder!), she is often able to help get these kids on the road to recovery.
In June 2015, she joined the U.S ARMY -- basic training at Fort Sill Oklahoma, then AIT training at Fort Lee Virginia and reserve duty in Bullville. In 2016, she began work at Vassar Brothers Medical Center on the neuroscience unit, and obtained her BSN degree with honors in 2018 from Grand Canyon University. She then became a Certified Critical Care Nurse and a member of the AACCN in May 2021 while on the front lines during COVID pandemic.
Around this time Maria’s daughter developed severe mitochondrial disorder. This spawned an interest in pediatric integrative medicine. When Vassar re-opened it pediatric floor in April 2022, Maria joined the staff. Her pediatric approach has been inspired by all the obstacles, fears, and nightmares experienced thought the past couple of years with her daughter. Maria wishes to share her nursing skills and personal experiences to promote wellness for our community.
