Notable quotes from Jayesh’s interview:

I checked out some of the universities and the hospitals, and I checked out some of my friends who had been ahead of me, and I felt [Moving to the US] was something I wanted to do, so, follow your dreams, you know?

I’m grateful to the nurses. I remember in my first day giving a stat order of Tylenol, and the nurses were laughing at me, and said “That’s not a stat order.”

I kept the goal of trying to do my best, and I think that continued to help me excel.

My goal was always to spread the knowledge of wound care in the best possible way.
