Congratulations to Lori Washing, a nurse on SICU at Grandview Medical Center, for winning the hospital’s December DAISY Award.
The DAISY Award is given to nurses who demonstrate clinical skill and compassionate care. It was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of a disease attacking the immune system (DAISY). His family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided, so they established this award program. You can read Lori’s nomination story below:
“Lori was heading home for the evening when I abruptly stopped her to see if she could help with a person in distress on Grand Ave. She did not hesitate to offer her help even though she was off the clock. Lori went above and beyond to make sure this person was taken care of. She stayed with the person and gave medical aid until paramedics arrived. Since the person was off campus and not a rapid call but a squad call, she knew the person needed help. Lori is a true example of improving the quality of life for people within our community.”
