“Elvira is an outstanding nurse! She is very dedicated in her work. She always has a wonderful personality and helps staff resolve difficult situations. She is a hard worker and deserves the 2010 Daisy Award.” −Maria Arellano, Outpatient Clinic
“A Triage call came in regarding a post-op burn patient. Elvira stepped up and assisted the family by paging the on-call MD for orders. Elvira and the triage RN worked as a team to provide advice to the family in need. Elvira is always available to assist other members of the healthcare team and uses the nursing process appropriately in order to make decisions.” −Melissa Chafey, Clinic
“This was not an easy decision for me due to the fact I have such a wonderful group of nurses. I feel Elvira is the epitome of what an outpatient clinic nurse is supposed to be. My favorite quote from Elvira is, ‘I come to work because I not only care about the children, but also about my burn clinic.’” − R.Tolbert, Nurse Manager
