Eric
Dasilva RPN

Prior to working with HHP,  I worked at Trillium Health Partners as an RPN on a medicine unit for the last 7 years. At Trillium I worked with new and veteran staff as well as resident doctors and learned the value of how big of a difference a good team can make in your shift and to your patients. I value teamwork above all else and that nursing is a job where you are constantly learning. What brought me to HHP was its philosophy not only towards their nurses but also to their clients. I hope to bring the clinical knowledge I’ve obtained over the years to this new stage in my career and be that team player that everyone knows they can rely on and no one is afraid to ask for help. Just remember team work makes the dream work. In my down time I enjoy playing video games and watching Netflix. For those curious, I’m team Xbox all the way. I am currently in school upgrading to my RN to sharpen my skills. Nursing is an everlasting quest for knowledge mixed in with the need to help others.
