June 2017 DAISY Award

Sarah Holland, RN – F5 NICU

Congratulations to Sarah Holland, RN for being selected as the DAISY Award recipient for the month of June!

Sarah works on F5 – the NICU unit. She was nominated for the award by a patient’s mother. The nomination below describes how Sarah made a lasting impact on a patient’s life.

“I had my daughter at 25 weeks and six days. At birth she weighed 1 pound, 10 ounces. Of course the first few days I constantly had my husband or another family member with me. The first day I was alone with my baby in the NICU, it all became real to me and I had all emotions come at me at once. I just started bawling. Sarah walked in somewhere during all of this and she didn’t say a word. She just wrapped her arms around me and allowed me to cry. I needed that so much at that moment and will never forget the amount of relief that brought me. There are so many other times that Sarah went above and beyond for me. She is, by far, the most amazing nurse I’ve ever met. We have been transferred to Children’s but Sarah will always have a place in my heart for everything she did for me and my daughter during our stay at UAMS.” 

Great job, Sarah!
