Nurse's photo makes cover of national journal

Photo showed Romero (center) caring for PACU patient with colleagues Karen Wolf (left) and Shannon Irons.
A photo submitted by Rachel Romero, a nurse in the University of Colorado Hospital's Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), appears on the cover of the February issue of the Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nurses, a peer-reviewed, research-focused publication for nurses and other providers working in the perioperative setting. Romero entered the photo as part of a yearly contest sponsored by the publication.

"I decided to send a photo that represents the kind of work perianesthe­sia nurses do best," Romero said. She shared the $200 prize with the col­leagues who joined her in the picture, she said, "because they helped in making the photo look authentic. I didn't expect to win, but I knew I sent a great picture."

Romero said she's been taking photos in the pre­operative and PACU settings for the past five years. "The photos are one of the best ways to store memories and to keep the legacy of nursing prac­tice alive," she said.
