Tim Guinee, a nurse on 3NW at the Infirmary, received the February DAISY Award.
Tim was nominated by a patient who praised his “words of encouragement and infectious smile.”
“He catered to my needs. When I rang my bell, he was right there explaining the purpose of my pills. From the time he clocked in until he clocked out, he was taking care of his patients.”
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.
