Dear Belinda Bell, RN,
Sacramento Medical Center - DAISY Award winner for October 2010
The specific event of compassionate nursing care as written on the nomination form by your patient:
“Belinda has been my nurse for the last week. I feel she has gone above the call of duty. Belinda took the time to explain every medication given to me, procedures along with taking time out to provide me with several handouts/printouts regarding diabetes and heart disease. Belinda even took time to talk to me, not as my nurse but as a caring person.
She made a very stressful time in my life bearable. I was scared when I was admitted to Kaiser having a knowledgeable and caring individual by your side really puts patients at ease. I know it was for me.
I know all the nurses at Kaiser do their jobs with a smile, but Belinda is a very caring and hard works and should be recognized for such.”
It is with this kind of compassionate and dedicated care that Kaiser Permanente and the DAISY Foundation present you with the DAISY award.
