Mariastrella Boyd, Patient Care Technician on the F6 – Medical Specialties
Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Mariastrella Boyd for being selected as the April BEE Award winner!
Mariastrella is a Patient Care Technician and was nominated by a UAMS employee. The following is the story of how Mariastrella impacted their life in a way that they will never forget.
Mariastrella spent over 30 minutes working to come up with ideas to assist the Physical Therapist, to move a very difficult patient to a wheelchair. Without this teamwork, the physical therapist said, there was no way he could have moved the patient to the wheelchair. This was so important to the patient, as the patient had bilateral leg fractures, and had to sit up in a chair for discharge. Mariastrella went above and beyond to help her patient achieve their goal of discharge within 48 hours. Also, at the same time, she was a team player assisting people from other departments for the good of her patient.
Way to go Mariastrella!
Please congratulate Mariastrella for Being Exceptional Every day at UAMS!
