Alexandria is nominated for a DAISY Award
A coworker nominated Alexandria for a DAISY Award for her exceeding and devoted care and for demonstrating true compassion while nursing.
The coworker said, “I want to nominate Alexandria for a DAISY award for going above and beyond for a patient who had a hospital stay that was longer than anticipated. Through the course of the patient’s stay, they became depressed and defeated. Alexandria dedicated herself to ensuring the patient had a home away from home. She cut and styled the patient’s hair and made them feel good about themselves when they had nothing left to give. She helped them into a wheelchair (no small task) and took them outside to get sunlight after being inside for almost two months. This brightened the patient’s day, and we all witnessed them perk up and smile for the first time in a long time. The patient was moved by the compassion Alexandria showed.
“Alexandria demonstrates exactly what nursing is through the extraordinary work ethic, knowledge and passion she brings to work every day. She puts her patient first and made a lasting impact on this patient’s life as they resolved to participate more in their care and work harder to move toward discharge. Alexandria did this because she wanted to, not for recognition or praise. Her care for people is genuine and she sets an example for all of us to follow. I am proud to call her a colleague and friend.”
Alexandria, your compassionate care is an inspiration to those around you. Keep up the good work!
