Stacy R. Nigliazzo is an ED nurse and a poet. Her work has been featured in JAMA and the Bellevue Literary Review, as well as in AJN (October 2009, February 2011, December 2012). Her new book, Sky the Oar (Press 53), will be published this fall. “Cavitation” inspired Nigliazzo to launch an art project in her ED, in which she convinced nurses, providers, paramedics, pharmacists, and clerks at Houston's Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital to fold more than 300 origami cranes to decorate the family waiting room (see Art of Nursing, December 2017). “Cavitation” © 2018 by Stacy R.
