Stephanie receives a DAISY Award nomination
A patient’s daughter nominated Stephanie for a DAISY Award for exceeding her care beyond the patient’s needs to the needs of the family.
The daughter wrote, “I was lucky to have Stephanie as my mom’s nurse at the worst time of my life. We decided to place my mom in hospice during her hospital admission. Stephanie’s hospice experience and knowledge really helped us during this transition. She is so compassionate, not only to the patient but also to the family. She helped me put things in perspective, advocated for my mom and myself, provided hugs and a friendly presence and made sure we had everything we needed. She is a true example of what a nurse should be. She made a strong connection with me, provided emotional support for our family and made a tremendous impact in our lives for the four days we spent with her.”
Stephanie, your patients and their families appreciate your hard work. Congratulations on the nomination!
