A patient nominates Linda for a DAISY Award

September 16, 2022 |

Linda was nominated for a DAISY Award by a patient and her spouse for the personal and touching care she gave that meant a great deal to them.

The patient’s spouse wrote, “My wife was in the ICU for the past two weeks, and in that time we met many wonderful nurses, but Linda stood out among them. Her kindness and compassion shone in everything she did. When talking with my wife, she always bent down to be at eye level and gave her the physical affirmation that she heard her. She didn’t just hear, she listened and checked in regularly to see if we needed anything. She did this for all her patients and their families.

“Linda also did little extra things that made life easier for her patients — like ordering extra ice cream and putting it in the freezer so they didn’t have to wait an hour to get it. She made our stay more bearable with her genuine care and deserves the highest honors and recognition. Linda, you are a skilled nurse and we felt safe in your care.”

Wow. That is some high praise, Linda. Congratulations on the DAISY Award nomination!
