Quartay receives a DAISY Award nomination
A patient nominated Quartay, aka Tay, for a DAISY Award for giving them the most attentive care and leaving a positive, genuine impact that will last a lifetime.
The patient wrote, “I was recently diagnosed with a mass on my left kidney. While I was at the hospital, I had a wonderful nurse named Tay. He is Amazing. I felt like he was the first nurse to ever be concerned about me — he was genuinely worried about how I was feeling. I often felt alone and stuck in my thoughts, but whenever Tay walked in, the atmosphere changed. That young man had some beautiful and bright energy. He would sit by my bed and talk with me during his free time, and he always had something new to talk about. When the time came to leave the hospital, I wanted to cry because he was so funny, kind, humble and caring. He is the kind of person you always want to be around. Whether or not he gets an award, please let him hear this story because I didn’t get to thank him enough for his services. Thank you, Tay.”
Tay, this is such an incredible example of what it truly means to be a nurse. From your team at Aya, thank you and congratulations.
