National Nurses Day is Wednesday, May 6th and 99.5 WKDQ and Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union want to spotlight and thank ALL Nurses in our community, not just one May 6th, but the entire week!

During the week of May 6th, we will honor 3 special nurses daily on air and online at WKDQ.com and the WKDQ App.

This spotlight goes to Amy Lau at Deaconess Hospital in Infection Prevention.

Amy Lau

Amy was nominated by Dana Blanke. Here's what she had to say about Amy:

I am nominating my twin sister, Amy Lau, RN, MSN, for a special Nurse's Day recognition. She has worked so many long hours over the past two months during this pandemic, at all hours of the day and night. She works in Infection Prevention at Deaconess which means her department is responsible for keeping the entire health system and the community safe and as protected as possible. She has contributed to employee education and made a community hand washing video that you can find on social media. She networks with area hospitals and the CDC to ensure our safety. She is scheduled as a part time employee but has been working 50+ hrs a week, sacrificing time with her family because she says "it's the right thing to do." She's been a phenomenal resource and deserves so much credit. I couldn't possibly put it all in this short space. We think she is pretty special.

From all of us here at 99.5 WKDQ, Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union, and the Tri-State, THANK YOU Amy for all you do each day! We appreciate you!

Do you know a nursing professional who goes above and beyond to make a difference? We want to hear about them so we can give them the proper thank you they deserve. Nominate your favorite nursing professional in the Tri-State and share a personal story of their dedication and service to the community!
