Our Campus is proud to announce Aaron Krenek, RN, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, as recipient and first male winner of the DAISY Award, which recognizes one nurse each month for going above and beyond to deliver exceptional patient care.
“I’m really excited to be the first guy to win this award,” said Krenek. “It’s an honor to be recognized for doing something that I truly love – caring for kids in the PICU.”
Clinical director of his area, Rhonda Thompson, shared the following words: “Aaron has been a nurse in the PICU for three years. During that time, he has consistently cared for our patients and families as if they were his own family. The comment from one of our patient’s parents certainly supports that perspective.”
The mother of a patient he cared for wrote, “Aaron was incredibly caring during the time he took care of our child. He treated our son as if he was his own. Aaron is a role model for the consistent, sensitive care he provides to patients.”
