Saint Joseph Berea recently named two winners of the Daisy Award, recognizing nurses for exceptional patient care. Award winners include Natasha Davis, RN, Medical Surgery Unit, and Ruth Prewitt, RN, Emergency Department.
The Daisy Award is a nationwide program that celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses. Saint Joseph Berea is proud to be a Daisy Award Partner.
Davis was nominated for the award by a patient for her accommodating nature and willingness to assist with any of the patient’s needs.
“Natasha is an excellent nurse,” said the patient. “She always has an empathetic and caring attitude.”
Prewitt was nominated by a patient’s daughter. When the patient was in the Intensive Care Unit, Prewitt came to visit the family several times during her busy shift to ask if they needed anything. After the patient passed away, Prewitt attended her visitation after working her shift.
“When I walked in and out of the hospital, I always stopped and acknowledged the crosses,” said the patient’s daughter. “I thought of Ruth and how she epitomized the hospital’s core values of reverence, integrity, compassion and excellence.”
Both award winners were presented with Daisy Award certificates and bouquets of daisies to display in their departments.
