Gail Rodriques, RNundefined

Gail has been a practicing RN for 33 years. She completed her nursing education at San Joaquin Delta College and found herself at home at Adventist Health Lodi Memorial where she has worked since her career began.

Over her significant career in nursing, she has worn many hats, spending time in the medical surgical units, cath lab and providing patients hands-on care through home health. From there Gail was entrusted with more leadership roles at Lodi Memorial, including APU supervisor and Relief Hospital Supervisor. In 2010, Gail realized that she missed providing direct patient care, and returned to pre- and post-surgical care.

Gail’s approach to medicine incorporates outstanding clinical care by relieving anxiety with laughter. She has a special place in her heart for patient education, and with her new role as the Orthopedic Nurse Navigator she considers herself as the patient cheerleader, assisting them with their plan of care and education, from pre-surgery through discharge from Adventist Health Lodi Memorial.
