Nurse Sandra helped my father feel safe. She cared for his physical, emotional and human condition by taking the time to listen and communicate the care and support he would receive during his stay. It was as if Nurse Sandra (along with the entire Medstar Good Samaritan staff) not only cared for my dad but also by taking such good care of my dying father, they were holding a place of care for his entire family.

It was clear from the beginning that Nurse Sandra cared deeply about my dad's care as if he were her own family. With such care and compassion, Good Sam is at the top of our list for professional and elite care for their expertise and compassion. Nurse Sandra's extraordinary, above and beyond the call of duty care exemplifies the underlying mission of MedStar Good Samaritan.

Note: This is Sandra's second DAISY Award!
