Amy Stein works on Hauenstein 2, the critical care/intensive care unit at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s, and she was nominated by a fellow nurse because of her compassion in dealing with a patient who was unstable. Her department and nursing leadership presented her with the DAISY Award on July 11, 2017.
According to the fellow nurse, Jeana Wisinski: “The patient was not cooperating with the clinical team until she could put her lipstick on and was worried about her personal appearance.
“Amy assured the patient, ‘If that is what is important to you, than that is what is important to us.’ You could see the relief on the patient’s face.
“We continued to work on stabilizing the patient. Amy quietly told her what she was going to do, and that we would make sure her friends and family did not see her until she ‘looked better.'”
Congratulations to Amy!
