Josie Lopez, RN

St. David's South Austin Medical Center

Josie Lopez was nominated because of the care she provided to a seriously ill patient.  When the patient was transferred from ICU to 3 South, she expressed concern about the condition of her hair following surgery. Josie brought in hair detangler and worked on the patient’s hair for more than an hour, patiently brushing it until it was manageable.
