RN, Deyone, has a huge heart — and a DAISY Award nomination!

March 21, 2022 |

Travel nurse, Deyone, was nominated for a DAISY Award by a coworker for being an outstanding example of how to lead with compassion and humanity in his nursing practice.

The coworker wrote, “Deyone made remarkable efforts to aid in comforting and humanizing the experience of a patient that was admitted three months ago, and remains on our unit. This patient has cerebral palsy and was near death when he came to us. He has no regular family contacts. Deyone goes in to speak with the patient every time he works, whether he’s the assigned nurse or not. He plays music that the patient likes on his personal phone and speaks to the patient about life, sports and current events. He does what he can to make him feel like a person, not just a patient. The joy Deyone brings to this man is humbling and heartwarming. Deyone displays the art of nursing in an exemplary way. He’s truly an excellent example of how to be a fantastic nurse and a wonderful human being.”

Deyone, we’re inspired by the exceptional care you show your patients. Congratulations on your nomination!
