Nurse Ramirez Character Analysis

Nurse Ramirez is a young nurse who cares for Mia in the Portland hospital. She is sympathetic to Adam and Kim’s wishes to see Mia, and covertly helps them when they try to use diversion tactics to get into the ICU, against the rules of the older head nurse. She tells Gran and Gramps that Mia is “running the show”—that Mia is the one who can decide whether or not she will emerge from her coma.
