Peak Performer: Katherine (Katie) Sandlin, NP
Short Stay Hospitalist
Katie was a Peak Performer recipient for the first quarter of 2022 (October-December). Below is her nomination letter.
Last week I had a patient on short stay who was unstable and was really concerning me. I notified Katie of this and she couldn't have been more helpful. She almost immediately saw the patient and ordered interventions. She came back and checked on the patient frequently which made me feel so reassured. Katie was so receptive to all of my concerns and ideas. She provided above and beyond patient care to this family. She is always so patient and listens to the nurses on our unit and is an incredible team player.
I appreciate that Katie rounds with the nurses for her patients before and sometimes after seeing them. Sometimes the patient's chart doesn't have all of the information necessary to know and I feel like this improves communication and patient care. I feel as if Katie always keeps me in the loop with her plans for our patients.
