Hannah Williams Recognized with Hot Springs DAISY Award

Hannah Williams, RN, was recognized with a Hot Springs DAISY Award for her ability to care for patients while providing much-needed assistance to team members.

“It was a busy day for all of us. She ran the whole unit so professionally and kept all of us staff nurses well informed of various happenings throughout the shift.”

The nomination noted several ways Hannah helped throughout her shift, including communicating with physicians, keeping family members updated on the status of their loved ones, obtaining telephone consents from family for procedures, assisting intensives with procedures, drawing blood cultures with ultrasounds, assisting with turning patients, placing orders in EPIC, taking patients to CT and answering call lights immediately.

“She did all things without hesitation. I really enjoyed working that shift with her! She consistently goes above and beyond. She is my favorite charge nurse that I’ve worked with in years.”

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.
