Lisa Mann, RN, who works in SICU in Hot Springs, was recognized with a DAISY Award for the care she provided to a patient who was in a car accident while she was five hours away from home.
Lisa was nominated by the mother of the patient who praised the care and compassion Lisa showed throughout the difficult ordeal.
“They did not think that she was going to make it. Lisa was so caring and compassionate for us. …She treated my baby like she was one of hers. Lisa showed so much love, support and compassion to my daughter. She is one of the many amazing nurses you have. God put being a nurse in her heart. She is here to help people and tries to make them better.”
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 the national award to thank nurses everywhere.
