Olivia receives a DAISY Award nomination
A patient nominated Olivia for a DAISY Award for her extraordinary efforts in making them feel as comfortable and cared for as possible.
The patient wrote, “I was hospitalized for two months due to narcotizing fasciitis and other infections that almost took my life. Olivia made me feel safe and took extra good care of me in assisting the doctors and saving my life. She always made sure I was clean and took my medications on time and always took the edge off the fear of death with her constant positive attitude. It was obvious my care and comfort was the most important thing without question. She also put my wife at ease by taking care of her when she spent nights with me. She went above and beyond for my wife’s birthday by making a card for her and having the other nurses sign it. She made me a name sign using markers and put it in my room to brighten my days. On her last night at the hospital, she’s a travel nurse, she asked the charge nurse if I could be on her schedule. That made me feel awesome. Olivia is very good at her job and it shows nursing is more than her profession, it’s her calling. My wife and I love her, and wherever she ends up, that hospital will be glad to have her.”
An extraordinary achievement for an extraordinary person. You deserve all the good things coming your way, Olivia!
