Roxanne Baker, BSN, RN

Heart Care Unit
MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital (MD)
Baltimore, Maryland
United States

Roxanne was honored with the DAISY Award for providing compassionate care and going above the call of duty to make sure her patient was comfortable during her stay at MedStar Good Samaritan. She was commended by her fellow nurses. Roxanne's patient was concerned about her bird, and since she had no loved ones nearby, Roxanne went to the patient's house to check on the bird and to bring clothes for the patient to wear when she was discharged. The patient was so grateful and appreciated Roxanne's kindness. Knowing that her bird was okay, the patient could relax and focus on her recovery.
