Weldon "Wally" Heitman, RN, receives UIHC's Service Star Award

Department of Radiology nurse, Weldon "Wally" Heitman, RN, received UIHC's Service Star Award. Wally contacted staff in the CCC Clinic and asked how he could best help a patient in pain to get IV Fentanyl to help the patient through the MRI and the PET/CT ordered prior to MD visits. His compassion and willingness to “shepherd” the patient through the day is the reason he was nominated as a STAR. http://www.healthcare.uiowa.edu/publications/vpmavoice/2013/VPMAVoice6-3.pdf
