Henri Pinon and Ashlie Adams, nurses on 4NW at the Infirmary, received November Daisy Awards.
Their patient submitted nomination states:
“I’ve never had a surgical procedure before. When the ER admitted me, I had no family or loved ones with me. Instead of becoming bitter and resentful, I became aware and grateful for the kindness and love that was being shown to me by these extraordinary nurses. Angels of mercy is what they were to me. My family started to trickle in, but I found myself more eager to see ‘my angels’. It’s been a haze and I wasn’t able to remember names as well as I wished I could, but your faces will forever be in my prayers, heart and memory.”
The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of ITP, an auto-immune disease. The Barnes Family was awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created this national award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.
