Kimberly is nominated for a DAISY Award

August 28, 2023 |

A colleague nominated Kimberly for a DAISY Award for significantly impacting patient outcomes and satisfaction.

The colleague wrote, “Kimberly goes above and beyond to make a difference in her patients’ lives. Her frequent inquiry, critical thinking and compassionate care make her a nursing role model, and I am honored and happy to nominate her for the DAISY Award. Once, when a patient was unable to communicate with the treatment team properly, Kim realized the issue was associated with the patient’s angioedema. Kim immediately contacted the intensivist/surgeon and ENT thinking her patient might need a cricothyrotomy. She saved the patient’s life with her awareness and critical thinking. Kim also establishes special connections with patients and families through trust and emotional support. Once, when taking care of a dying patient who was DNR/DNI and had no escalation of care, Kim sat at their bedside holding their hands so she would not feel alone. Her countless efforts to reunite the family for the last time via phone were very much appreciated by the family. Kim demonstrates calm and respectful behavior to her peers and patients to build trustworthy relationships in the unit. She always represents the principles and excellence of nursing and is committed to providing that across the nation. She will be the best fit for the DAISY Award.”

Kimberly, you are a true representation of excellence. Congratulations on the well-deserved nomination!
