Phuong Smith, Clinical Nurse on F3, was recognized by a colleague for going above and beyond for a patient. Phuong was part of a team caring for a young patient who had been in and out of the hospital without any family or friend support. The patient’s appearance was making the patient visibly upset. Phuong took time out of her shift to give the patient an amazing haircut. The patient was so happy they cried tears of joy; they were so thankful and absolutely loved their new look. Phuong even brought in some of her own products from home and helped the patient style their hair. Phuong exemplifies the caring HEART of Stanford Nursing.
