Albany Med MICU unit RN/ Angel
Robbie deserves this title because he took care of my husband while he was dying. Robbie gave us hope and was so positive and upbeat while we were beaten down. My husband was brought in with sepsis shock and was told he was going to die overnight. He survived only to die 7 weeks later. My husband died with dignity with the help of Robbie Allerton.

Peggy is a leader, a mentor, a friend and an incredible nurse. The emergency room is a fast placed, high stress environment and in the worst possible cases you can find Peggy at the head of the bed leading the team in delivering the best possible care to those who need it most. Peggy is the nurse I aspire to be: caring, compassionate, competent, courageous and committed.
