November 2020 DAISY Award

DAISYLauren Taylor, RN – Perioperative Care – Main PACU

Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Lauren Taylor, RN for being selected as the DAISY Award recipient for the month of November!

Lauren works in Perioperative Care – Main PACU and was nominated by a patient’s family member.  The nomination below reflects how Lauren impacted their life in a very special way.

“My 92 year old mother had surgery late this afternoon at UAMS and was fortunate to have Lauren Taylor as her nurse in recovery.  Lauren called me directly a number of times during a period that my mother was delirious, upset and confused in an attempt to learn how to best calm her down.  She was so caring and told me she was keeping my mother with her a bit longer so that Mom would receive her focused attention.

Clearly, Lauren went above and beyond what many would have done in a similar situation.  She is an extraordinary nurse and more importantly, a very special human being and my family and I are truly grateful for her service at a difficult time.

Best regards,

Gretchen Freeman

Great job, Lauren Taylor!
