Family thank nurse for outstanding compassion

Staff nurse Sara O'Leary (pictured centre) has been thanked for her outstanding compassion. Stephanie Steven highlighted the kindness shown by Sara after she cared for fiancé Oliver following emergency surgery earlier this year.

Stephanie said: "Sara was very diligent and showed a lot of consideration to both Oliver and myself. She is a fantastic nurse who clearly goes above and beyond. She provided the best care to him possible. In fact, as a registered nurse myself, I would always strive to provide the same level of care.  UHNM should be very proud of their staff."

Stephanie and Oliver have given Sara the UHNM Hero Award in recognition of her exemplary care.

Sara said: "I remember looking after Oliver, but was very surprised to get this award. I was actually on holiday when I received the email about it and it was really unexpected. I feel that I was just doing my job, but it's really nice to be recognised."
