Willa Wheeler, RN – Emergency Department
Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Willa Wheeler, RN for being selected as the DAISY Award recipient for the month of May!
Willa works in the Emergency Department and was nominated by a co-worker. The nomination below reflects how Willa impacted their life in a very special way.
“We had a patient check in through triage to go up to Labor and Delivery. The admissions clerk was pushing the patient in a wheelchair through the ED on the way to the elevator. The patient started yelling that the baby was coming. Willa was quick to jump into action. She asked if they would wheel her into one of our trauma rooms and within minutes we had two patients instead of one! Willa stayed calm and did what she needed to do without anyone asking her. She assessed the situation and wasted no time getting the patient the help she needed. I am happy to report both patients are doing wonderful! I can’t think of any other nurse who deserves this award more. Willa consistently teaches the rest of us new things day in and day out with grace. Her knowledge and kindness are unmeasurable. I am honored to get to work side by side with her and our patients are lucky to have her here.”
Great job, Willa Wheeler!
