Peggy is nominated for a DAISY Award

February 21, 2024 |

A patient nominated Peggy for a DAISY Award for her kindness and top-notch problem-solving during a difficult blood draw.

The patient wrote, “After multiple painful attempts to draw blood for a PT/INR by numerous phlebotomists, I begged my nurse, Peggy, for another solution. My veins were shot, my arms were bruised, my morale was broken and no one could draw more blood. My surgeon had mentioned a PT/INR monitor in the emergency department, and I asked Peggy if it could be used for me. She went above and beyond to get permission to bring the machine to my room for a finger stick instead of a blood draw. It took perseverance, persuasion, advocacy for her patient and good problem-solving skills. She is my hero and is fully deserving of recognition for this effort.”

Congratulations Peggy! Your patients are so grateful for your quality care, and so are we!
