Justin Barbee, Police Officer, Police Department
Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Justin Barbee – for being selected as the October BEE Award winner!
Justin is a Police Officer and was nominated by a family member of a patient. The following is the story of how Justin impacted their life in a way that they will never forget.
Nomination: It was late and our family had been at the hospital for 3 hours without any communication from our loved one. Officer Barbee stopped to ask how we were and if we needed help. We simply responded, “No thank you.” However, after another hour went by, I reached out to Officer Barbee. He was simply incredible. I told him that we just needed to know what the nurses and the doctors being in the room meant. We couldn’t hear or see our family member and we were scared. Officer Barbee communicated our needs to ICU and arranged for either a nurse to come to us or for us to see our family member within a 10-minute window. The relief he brought to our greatest fears was a blessing. The next day he asked about our family member. He is an asset to UAMS, and I am so glad to have encountered this, Officer.
Way to go Justin!
Please congratulate Justin for Being Exceptional Every day at UAMS!
