Caring Nurse Award Winner: Wanda Teraoka, RNSurgical/Pediatrics nurse Wanda Teraoka was the Caring Nurse Award Winner for 2017, honored for her work as an active member of the NICHE and PIPSC committees. Wanda was a key member of the Alzheimer's Association "Longest Day" event at El Camino Hospital. This June 21 event involved a team of employees and volunteers who made over 20 activity aprons for our elder dementia patients, designed to distract patients from pulling at lines or harming themselves. Wanda developed the template for the apron and instructed the novice sewing and crafting team. Wanda's work was submitted to the NICHE conference and accepted. Wanda traveled with other NICHE nurses to San Antonio, Texas to showcase The Longest Day and the activity aprons.
