Travel nurse, Sarah, receives a DAISY Award nomination!
RN, Sarah, was nominated for a DAISY Award by one of her supervisors for her strong attention to detail and determination to advocate for a young patient in need.
The supervisor wrote, “On Sarah’s first week of her first travel assignment in the operating room, she ran into a patient concern that nurses hope they never have to run into … signs of child abuse. Sarah’s careful assessment skills during an unrelated additional emergency operation led her to suspect that her patient may be in a dangerous situation at home. Sarah handled this situation delicately and thoroughly, advocating strongly for the safety of this patient. She brought the concerns to the attention of the providers in the case and upper nursing management, following the mandated reporting protocols for social work follow-up. Sarah caught the signs of potential neglect and abuse in a young patient who needed someone to advocate for him.”
Sarah, your quick action and determination to advocate for your patient are remarkable. Congratulations on your well-deserved nomination.
