Amanda Diehl, Social Worker – Care Management Admin Office
Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Amanda Diehl for being selected as the October BEE Award winner!
Amanda Diehl is a Social Worker in Care Management Admin Office and was nominated by a co-worker. The following is the story of how Amanda impacted their life in a way that they will never forget.
Amanda started out working with a family member of a patient on F4 one year ago. This patient was tragically shot and sustained a spinal cord injury that left him quadriplegic and unable to breathe on his own or provide any self-care. Amanda has been right by the patient’s side and assisting his mother and family in processes with discharge to other facilities and eventually home where he can be surrounded by his family and loved ones. Amanda has shown so much compassion for this patient and family. She has gone above and beyond and was a true advocate for them all. She was one of the few people this family trusted and she maintained that trust throughout all of his hospital admissions. I cannot think of a better example of exceptionalism in care and support than what Amanda has provided this patient and family.
Way to go Amanda Diehl!
Please congratulate Amanda for Being Exceptional Every day at UAMS!
