January 2016 DAISY Award Winner
Angella Uhl, RN
Younker 7, Iowa Methodist Medical Center
Angella took such special care of our mother. She showed personal attention and would kneel and talk directly to her in such a respectful and compassionate way. She was never rushed, and always made sure Mom was comfortable. Angella was a true professional at all times and so competent. Mom would tell us how much she loved her name and how she was such a sweetie. Angella eased our anxiety, and more importantly, our mother's.
We loved that Mom had the same nurses for days in a row. We are indebted to nurse Kelly, nurse Jess and the whole team of health professionals who cared for Mom: attending doctors, pulmonary doctors, breathing technicians, patient care advocate, case worker, social worker and the workers on the floor. We tell everyone how wonderful Methodist has been and how grateful we are for their care.
At one point, our 92-year-old mom said, "I feel like royalty here!" That was due to the whole staff, but especially nurse Angella. Thank you so much.
