Judy receives a DAISY Award nomination
A patient’s family member nominated Judy for a DAISY Award for the profound support she gave the patient and his family.
The family member wrote, “Judy was working on the respiratory critical care unit during the last seven days of my grandfather’s life. She was so compassionate and caring. Her care for my grandfather was the best I have ever seen (and my recent experience with hospital care is extensive). She checked on him hourly and made sure his needs were met and that he was not in pain. When he needed additional levels of support, she contacted them quickly and they arrived quickly. While I am saddened that none of my family was by my grandfather’s bedside when he passed, I’m comforted knowing that Judy was there making sure he was not in pain. She also made sure our family had everything we needed and that our needs and our desires for my grandfather’s care were met. Though hospitalization and death are painful, Judy made everything as comfortable as it could be, which took away many stresses for our family. Thank you so much, Judy!”
The team would also like to give their thanks, Judy. Congratulations on the DAISY Award nomination!
