Newborn Nursery

Betsy was an amazing nurse to my daughter and made me feel more confident about breastfeeding because at times I was struggling.

I would like to share my story about Betsy because during my stay she was my daughter's nurse all 3 days. From the first introduction, Betsy always came in with a smile on her face and never rushed with my questions or concerns. She was always willing to find our answers for questions I had and went above and beyond with all my breastfeeding questions (which I knew I had many and often repeated them). She checked up on us consistently and made sure my husband and I had everything we needed as well. She explained every test and procedure thoroughly and made sure my husband and I understood. Betsy was an amazing nurse to my daughter and made me feel more confident about breastfeeding because at times I was struggling. She made sure I had reading material as well. Betsy deserves so much credit – an amazing nurse!

The patient's husband also remembers their experience with Betsy and was the one who encouraged his wife to submit the DAISY nomination. He stated that since his wife is a nurse, she understands the high demands, and Betsy's care “really stood out”.
