Ruiz-Gomar says it became essential to connect with the families virtually allowing them to be a part of everything. 

“When I meet a patient, sometimes they were nonresponsive. So I will call the family and say, ‘What is important to this person? What would they like? What would they appreciate?’ And then we will do what we can to connect,” she says. 

The care team cannot visit every patient at the hospital, but they try to connect with as many as possible.
