Congratulations Rachael Stauder, RN, for being recognized as a Hot Springs Service Hero in October.
Rachael is a part of the float pool and was nominated by a coworker.
One day Rachael had a patient that brought her child with her. She learned the patient didn’t have any help with the little girl and didn’t have enough money to feed her.
Rachael took it upon herself to help the mom and her child. She gave them a meal ticket and took the little girl to the other floors and played with her to let her mom rest. Rachael gave the little girl a stethoscope so she could pretend she was a doctor.
Rachael’s coworker said she felt this act of kindness showed compassion and holistic nursing.
“She wasn’t just taking care of the patient, she was taking care of a family. Thank you for your compassion, Rachael!”
