Aya traveler, Karen, gets a DAISY Award nomination!

December 2, 2021 |

RN, Karen, was nominated for a DAISY Award after she made a huge impact on a patient during their visit to the ER. When the patient received difficult news, Karen was there to offer support. Read the patients sweet nomination below:

“While I was a patient in the ER I had a nurse who provided me with care above any standard I would expect. Karen was my nurse when I came into the hospital with fear of the unknown. I was 11 weeks pregnant after years of trying and when she walked into my room, she not only made me comfortable, but she also calmed me down by showing me I could trust her. After my ultrasound, the doctor came in and told me the news of my miscarriage. During the worst time of my life, Karen was there. She asked if I wanted her to stay because no visitors were allowed. I agreed. She didn’t talk, she just sat there and let me cry and grieve. She took the time to sit with me and hold my hand to comfort me. This nurse made a huge impact on my life and I want her to know that. Thank you for all that you do. Being present makes a huge difference in someone’s care.”

Karen, the empathy and compassion you show make all the difference for your patients. Thank you for demonstrating what it means to be an exceptional nurse!
