Paul Roberts, RN, was recognized with a Hot Springs DAISY Award for the care he provided to a patient waiting to have surgery.
In the patient’s nomination, he praised Paul for going “above and beyond to help me think positive through this.”
The nomination also noted Paul’s compassion and attentiveness.
“Every question I had he answered and explained, and if he didn’t have an answer to my question, he would make the time to find the answer. He is an excellent nurse, and I can tell he loves and takes his job serious. We need more healthcare workers like him.”
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.
