The letter nominating Anne Trinosky describes her as efficient, organized and capable. It mentions how Anne had a composed, confident and calm manner and emphasizes how this nurse welcomed and treated the family and visitors kindly. “We were not intrusive strangers. Instead, we were family and friends allowed to move freely in and out of this room. When we weren’t in the hospital room, we were in the family waiting area where we had a chance to talk and laugh and cry. We could support each other because you, Anne, supported us.” This nomination goes on to talk about the philosophy of family centered care that is found in the CCU at the University of Michigan Health System.
The letter ends with, “ Our grandson is twelve and idolizes his grandpa. He thinks you should get the DAISY Award because you saved his grandpa’s life the first time you cared for him and you did your best the second time. We are grateful to you and indebted to you. The care that our family received from you and the CCU staff will be long remembered.”
