Rani Simpson Recognized with Hot Springs DAISY Award

Rani Simpson, RN, was recognized with a Hot Springs DAISY Award for her positive attitude and great teamwork.

Rani was nominated by a coworker who praised her willingness to stay after her shift to help with a patient.

“I asked her if she minded helping me move the patient to ICU before she left, and she didn’t hesitate. We moved the patient and gave a report together to the ICU nurse.”

The nomination also noted Rani’s ability to go “above and beyond” to ensure her patients get the care they need, allowing her coworkers to have a smooth transition at shift change.

“She had a positive attitude from the time I gave her my report to when she gave me a report (the next) morning.”

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.
