What People are Saying
“The Compartment Syndrome presentation was excellent. I knew very little about C.S. I learned a lot and especially appreciated hearing the liability issues to look for when reviewing a case like this. Thanks to Annemarie and to you Pat, for your commitment to continuing nursing education.”
