Advocate Sherman nurse finds niche working alongside his father
Elgin, Ill., nurse Dan Brems says it took a while, but he feels comfortable working with his father, Dr. John Brems, at Advocate Sherman Hospital. The younger Brems provides post-op care for his dad's surgery patients, and he says working together has advantages, because he knows exactly how his father operates and is comfortable asking him frank questions.
