A patient nominates Heather for a DAISY Award
Heather received a beautiful nomination for a DAISY Award from a patient and fellow nurse who recognized her profound dedication to nursing.
The patient wrote, “Heather was my nurse on the night of my delivery, and she did incredible advocacy for me and my baby. When things got difficult for me, she took charge of the situation and got the anesthesiologist to help me. When the pain resumed, she got anesthesiologists to help me again. She comforted me while I got a second epidural in the midst of intense contractions when I was exhausted both physically and emotionally. She cheered me on when I was ready to give up. She was quick to act when my baby did not like what was going on, repositioning me and eventually getting the OB because he had to be delivered. She kept the room calm, took charge and guided anyone there to help me. Heather is an example what a nurse should strive to be. She was the kind of nurse anyone in my situation would have wanted to have. I will be forever grateful to her and the impact she had on my labor and delivery.”
What a touching story. Your patients appreciate you, Heather. Keep up the good work!
