As soon as we met with Raymond, with his warm heart and high level of professionalism, we knew we were in the right place!

Meghan receives a DAISY Award nomination

A fellow RN nominated Meghan for a DAISY award for her dedication and thoughtfulness for a young patient.

The RN wrote, “As a travel nurse, Meghan is frequently at new facilities, and at every new hospital system, she stands out and wins the hearts of patients and their families. Recently, Meghan connected with a family struggling with a difficult diagnosis and treatment plan. Meghan noticed the care plan did not meet the needs of this patient, so she advocated and worked with doctors to create a plan that better suited the patient. Thanks to Meghan’s intervention, the patient received a wonderful plan that met her needs. The compassionate care and connection she developed with this patient and her family was amazing. The parents went out of their way to express how wonderful Meghan was in that difficult time, and the trust and relief they felt when Meghan walked into the room to care for them.”

Way to go Meghan! Keep up the great work.

Sariah is praised by an Aya employee

An Aya employee praised Sariah for her kindness and patience while caring for her mother.

The employee wrote, “My mom had brain surgery last week. The surgery went well, but there were complications that caused us to rush her back to the hospital by ambulance. We were blessed with having an Aya traveler, Sariah, as her ER nurse. She was extremely kind and attentive to my mom’s needs and made her ER experience as good as possible given the situation. The hospital was extremely busy, and my mom became very impatient with the time it was taking, but Sariah was extremely kind, patient and reassuring with her. She was confident and knowledgeable. I’ve worked for Aya for almost three years and never met a traveler in the field. It made me proud to be an Aya employee.”

A truly awe-inspiring story. Thank you for your great work, Sariah.

The Life Saving Award was bestowed to Rita

Rita was awarded the Life Saving Award from her facility after stepping in to help a car crash victim on her way to work!

The facility leader wrote, “As Rita drove past a car accident on her way to work, she noticed a police officer at the accident site looking concerned. Rita pulled over, notified the officer she was an RN, and asked if he needed help. He stated he did, as one of the drivers was trapped and having difficulty breathing. Because the driver’s car door could not open, the officer broke open the window, allowing Rita to get into the car. Using spinal cord precautions, she stabilized the driver’s neck while helping to open his airway. She heard his airway improve just as the fire department arrived with the jaws of life. The driver was successfully removed from his car and brought to the hospital to recover from his injuries. We are thankful for Rita and her willingness to stop and help in an emergency!”

The team applauds your attention to care, Rita. Congratulations on this well-deserved award!

Madison receives a Role Model For Excellence award

Madison received a Role Model for Excellence award for her top-tier performance while floating to another unit.

The facility leader said, “Madison floated from her home unit to the extended care unit and had to adapt to caring for 12 patients. Despite this daunting task, she maintained a very positive attitude. She took it upon herself to help others pass their meds, making sure patients got their medications on time. She also recognized a decline in a patient’s condition, resulting in a rapid response being called, ensuring the patient received the care they needed. She truly went above and beyond to prioritize patient care and support her peers, especially since it was not her home unit. She showed great resiliency and adaptability by providing great nursing care regardless of her environment.”

Congratulations on the award, Madison! Your team appreciates you, and so do we. Keep up the great work!
