Allyson Burns

Allyson Burns

Allyson Burns - CN II, SICU

In the nomination of Allyson, the following was written:

I walked into my patient's room and saw Allyson in there. I double checked my assignment and then found out that she was there as a sitter for my patient. My patient was confused and wanting to climb out of bed. On this particular day when faced with this challenge at work, she chose to make the most out of the day and chose to be there for my patient. She immediately shampooed my patient's hair, gave her a thorough bath first thing in the morning, got her up to a chair and sat beside her all day long. They did exercises, went back to bed and back to the chair, and advocated for her to get tea in her ice cold swabs. The patient had a very specific way that she wanted things done and Allyson had it down. She truly listened with her heart when speaking to the patient and the patient's sister, giving her updates and reassuring her and the patient. She chose to make the best out of her situation. She made everyone's day!
