Sarah Duran, RN, Cardiology Unit, was recently recognized as a Hot Springs service hero.
She was nominated by a patient’s family member.
The patient was on the cardiology floor for unknown heart-related issues. The patient’s daughter said when she arrived at the hospital, she was told that “this nurse is taking the best care of dad.”
She said her mom has dementia and Sarah was very patient with her, answering her questions over and over without frustration.
Sarah was also diligent with pain control as the patient was one week out from rotator cuff surgery.
The patient’s daughter said seeing the way this nurse cared for her dad made it much easier when she had to be away from him.
“I have worked with nurses most of my career, and I have to say that our nurse is one of the most compassionate nurses I have ever been around. It takes a special person to be a nurse, and Sarah Duran is one of the best!”
