January 2019 BEE Award

Steven Nichol, Patient Care Technician – F8 – Cardiac Progressive Care

Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Steven Nichol for being selected as the January BEE Award winners!

Steven is a Patient Care Technician on F8 – Cardiac Progressive Care and was nominated by a patient.  The following is the story of how Steven impacted his patient’s life in a way that they will never forget.

I recently underwent two very serious surgeries’ at UAMS.  There is no question that the medical team saved my life! 

While I am forever indebted for the skills and efforts of untold dozens of member of your staff, I want to recognize a couple of individuals who consistently went beyond the call, to make my stay as pleasant as possible.  One of those special individuals was a gentleman named Steven Nichol – PCT.  As a business owner I notice and appreciate employees who go the extra mile and Steven was a standout.  He was always quick to answer the call from my nurse when help was needed – often for very unpleasant jobs like changing the bed of an incapacitated patient who had temporarily lost control of his bodily functions or needed help using the commode and from my experience, people like Steven are in short supply and easy to overlook because they are the folks who do what needs to be done and then go about their job. 

Steven is a standout.”   

Way to go Steven.

Please congratulate Steven for Being Exceptional Every day at UAMS!
