About Nurse Bank of Maryland


"My sisters and I are writing to express appreciation for the efficient service provided by Nurse Bank—Bari and Gayle—were extremely helpful with regard to scheduling matters—and to commend your three superb nurses' aides who cared for our beloved mother, in 12-hour private-duty shifts around the clock at Northwest Hospital until her passing…the Nurse Bank is fortunate to be associated with these wonderful health care professionals, and we feel fortunate to have had them care for our mother”
