Rachel is nominated for a DAISY Award
A patient nominated Rachel for a DAISY Award for being the best nurse he’s ever encountered. His parents also wrote nominations for the compassion she showed their son.
The patient wrote, “I was fortunate to have Rachel as a night nurse for three days straight. She was exceedingly kind, sympathetic and mentally and physically supportive of me. She always acted promptly to my calls for assistance while being friendly. I felt Rachel truly cared about me and my painful scenario. I’ve been hospitalized many, many times over the last 13 years. Rachel is the best nurse I’ve ever had to take care of me by far. Her patients are fortunate to have her, and I feel so fortunate to have met her!”
The parents added, “Our son received excellent care from Rachel, who helped him through a difficult time at the hospital. She went way beyond her RN duties, showing a real caring attitude and assurance while helping our son. While on duty during the nighttime hours, Rachel responded quickly and professionally to our son’s concerns and needs. Rachel’s knowledge and attentiveness have helped him tremendously both physically and mentally. Thank you so much, Rachel! The world needs more nurses like you.”
This is a well-deserved nomination. Congratulations, Rachel! Your team is proud of you!
