Southern California Nurse Retires Following Paralyzing Accident

In a tragic turn of events, Deanne Niedziela, a veteran nurse and director at the Providence Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, California, has been left paralyzed following a catastrophic accident during a vacation in Costa Rica. Niedziela, who dedicated over three decades to the healthcare profession, fell victim to a falling tree limb that severely injured her spinal cord. The accident occurred while she was visiting waterfalls, abruptly ending her beloved career.

The severity of Niedziela’s injury required a nine-hour surgery that, while successful in saving her life, resulted in paralysis from the chest down. The distressing irony that Niedziela—who spent her life helping others in their recovery—is now in recovery herself at Providence Mission Hospital, the very same institution where she served countless patients and staff members, marks a somber milestone in her life.
