Cynthia Wilhite Recognized with Hot Springs DAISY Award

Cynthia Wilhite, RN, who works in Pre-Admission Screening in Hot Springs, was recognized with a DAISY Award for continuously going “above and beyond” to care for her patients.

Cynthia was nominated by the wife of a patient who was in a great deal of pain prior to his outpatient surgery.

“She went above and beyond to find the doctors ahead of schedule to provide my husband with the pain relief he so desperately needed. She saw his great need and found a way to address it and made him comfortable. Due to COVID restrictions, I was not allowed in the room during his prep, but she took such good care of him.”

After her husband’s procedure, the woman saw Cynthia again coming to the aid of someone. This time it was an elderly woman whose husband was having surgery. The woman had many items she was carrying to her car, and Cynthia offered to assist her.

I cannot say enough about Cynthia, and how she goes above and beyond for those patients and their families with whom she works!

The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of ITP, an auto-immune disease. The Barnes Family was awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created the national award to thank nurses everywhere.
