Voltaire Orlina, RN, Float Pool
Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Voltaire Orlina, RN, for being selected as the DAISY Award recipient for the month of March!
Voltaire Orlina, RN, Float Pool and was nominated by a co-worker. The nomination below reflects how Voltaire impacted their life in a very special way.
Nomination:Voltaire was taking care of a patient who had recently had an IR procedure on their groin. The patient’s wound, 4hrs post op opened with arterial hemorrhage. Voltaire immediately recognized exsanguinating hemorrhage after an arterial procedure and applied effective direct pressure. When I presented to the room as the resident on call, he had the situation completely under control. After 20 minutes of pressure, the bleeding was controlled. Voltaire quickly and effectively identified life threatening hemorrhage, applied appropriate medical knowledge and technique, and saved the patient from exsanguination. He demonstrated excellent awareness, clinical knowledge, and composure in a difficult situation leading to excellent patient care.
Great job, Voltaire!
