January 2019 DAISY Award

DAISYHauwa Anda, RN – F7 – Stem Cell Transplant/MIRT

Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Hauwa Anda, RN for being selected as the DAISY Award recipient for the month of January!

Hauwa works on F7 – Stem Cell Transplant/MIRT and was nominated by a patient.  The nomination below reflects how Hauwa impacted their life in a very special way.

Hauwa was my nurse when I was first admitted.  It was at mid-shift and I was a little nervous about being admitted.

Hauwa was very responsive to my request.  She had great situational awareness of my situation, and was able to adjust to me and my needs.  She was incredibly professional as she cared for me.  She was also very knowledgably in nursing and the specialized area of multiple myeloma.  During the course of the night she was able to care for me and share a little of her story.  She knew that sharing with me would help calm me and take my mind off of the cancer.  

There is no way I can repay her for all she did

She is the face of UAMS.  Her professionalism, expertise, situational awareness, and patient care was set apart (which is amazing considering all my nurses were A+ nurses).  I would recommend her for an award and would think upper management would want to hear her story.”

Great job, Hauwa Anda!
