Caitlin McGeehan, RN, BSN

Cardiac ICU staff Nurse
The Johns Hopkins Hospital

Caitlin works in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Johns Hopkins, where her own grandfather was the recipient of a successful heart transplant in the early 1980s. He was a shining example to her of someone who used his “borrowed time” to live wisely and prepare for his family for his inevitable death. In her work, she feels it is a clinician’s responsibility to communicate candidly with patients about their treatment options so that they can, in turn, make choices that optimize quality of life.
