A calmness sweeps over you, and you are ready for surgery. That’s how Brian Awanyan makes each one of his preop patients feel.
“With Brian at your bedside, you get his full attention. He takes precious minutes explaining the procedure, he gives you a warm blanket, he treats you with respect and dignity … and he does this consistently, giving 100 percent,” his nominator says. Brian never leaves his patients’ bedside until he knows they are settled in and comfortable. If a tense situation arises, Brian Awanyan handles it with professionalism … cool as a cucumber, he is. And lucky for the PACU nurses, Brian is always eager to help them so that patient safety is not compromised. “Brian Awanyan is a favorite nurse in Surgical Services,” his nominator says.
