Omar is an extremely professional, compassionate nurse. He consistently assists other nurses when the need arises. He demonstrates excellent clinical skills, and an example of exemplary compassion. Omar came in on his day off to insert a PICC line on Dec 23rd. As the Resource RN I received a call from a nurse who had a patient who could not be discharged until she had a PICC line for continuing IV antibiotics. This patient had an 11 month old child and wanted to be at home for Christmas. Radiology was notified and told the nurse that they would do it on Monday (day after Christmas). I called Omar (who was Christmas shopping with his family out of town). He came in during the early evening after he returned to town and inserted the PICC line and the patient was able to go home that evening. If not for Omar’s compassionate gift, the patient would have not been able to be home with her child for Christmas.
