Southview September 2016 DAISY Award Winner – Ashley LaVenture

Ashley LaVenture - September 2016Congratulations to Ashley LaVenture, a nurse in Med Surg at Southview Medical Center, for winning the hospital’s September 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 Ashley’s nomination story below:

“I have seen and had Ashley as my nurse many times.  I feel surprised to know that this is the first award I have nominated her for. Ashley has been my nurse so many times and I leave and think about how nice she is or how nice of a compliment she paid me was.  She always has a smile and perky attitude. Ashley is great at spreading the love and positive attitude. She has great traits that are contagious in a good way! Thanks for lifting my spirits and showing interest.”
