TRUSTWORTHY - YOU CAN ALWAYS DEPEND ON THIS PERSON TO FOLLOW UP; ANY PATIENT QUESTIONS, ORDERS, ISSUES.
OBSERVANT - LOOKS AHEAD, TROUBLE SHOOTS PATIENT NEEDS BEFORE THEY EVEN REALIZE IT. ASSESSMENT SKILLS ARE EXCELLENT, NOTICES THE SMALL THINGS.
PROFESSIONAL - ALWAYS TAKES THE TIME TO THINK, BUT IS SO SMOOTH FROM TASK TO TASK YOU DON’T EVEN NOTICE THE PAUSE. ALWAYS FOCUSED AND CALM EVEN WHEN SOMEONE ELSE IS ILL OR UPSET.
MENTOR - GREAT CLINICAL THINKER. I OFTEN DISCUSS PATIENT CONCERNS OR QUESTIONS WITH THIS RN. I ALSO HEAR THIS RN TALKING WITH OTHER RN’S AND CNA’S AS WELL TO TEACH.
TEAM PLAYER - EXCELLENT AT COMMUNICATING WITH CO-WORKERS, NURSES, LAB, DOCTORS, EVERYONE!
DEVOTED - PUTS PATIENT CARE FIRST EVERY TIME.
HOLISTIC - COVERING ALL ASPECTS OF PATIENTS PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL NEEDS EVERY TIME THIS RN IS AT WORK. REPORTS AT SHIFT CHANGE ARE EXCELLENT TOO!
CHEERFUL - I DON’T BELIEVE I HAVE EVER HEARD THIS RN COMPLAIN ABOUT ANYONE OR ANYTHING. THEY HAVE A VERY POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
ATTENTIVE - KNOWS HOW TO DO LITTLE THINGS FOR HER PATIENTS AND CO-WORKERS.

THE EPITOME OF WHAT A DAISY NURSE IS ALL ABOUT. COMPASSION - TREATS THE PATIENTS AS IF THEY WERE THE ONLY PATIENT HERE. AN ADVOCATE FOR THE PATIENT AND ALWAYS GOES THE EXTRA MILE FOR THEM. I HAVE SEEN THIS RN LITERALLY BREAK OUT IN A SWEAT IN CARING FOR THE PATIENT. IF I WERE A PATIENT HERE I WOULD WANT THIS RN FOR MY RN. IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE AND LOVES TO LEARN DIFFERENT THINGS. IS THE ULTIMATE PROFESSIONAL, ALWAYS THERE TO GIVE A HELPING HAND TO ANYONE THAT NEEDS IT. NEVER TAKES THE ROLE OF RN FOR GRANTED, INSTEAD, IS ALWAYS QUESTIONING, WHY? IS EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE QUALITIES. I HAVE TO SAY WHEN I COME TO WORK AND THEY ARE HERE, IT WILL BE A GOOD SHIFT, EVERY TIME! I AM PROUD TO WORK ALONGSIDE OF THIS RN, THEY ARE AN INSPIRATION TO NEW RN’S AND A JOY TO BE AROUND.

ALWAYS WILLING TO TEACH OTHERS, VERY CARING TO THE PATIENTS AND CO-WORKERS. EVERYTHING THAT IS NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THE DAISY AWARD IS THIS RN.

EVERYTHING A DAISY NURSE STANDS FOR THIS RN IS! THE PATIENTS ALWAYS COME FIRST; WILL ALWAYS GO THE EXTRA LENGTH TO MAKE SURE THE PATIENTS ARE TAKEN CARE OF. WHEN THIS RN IS ON THEY WILL ALWAYS HELP THEIR CO-WORKERS. IS A MENTOR TO MANY NEW RN’S PLUS WILL TAKE STUDENTS. THEY COME OUT BEING BETTER NURSES.

TEAM PLAYER - ALWAYS DOES WHAT IS BEST FOR EVERYONE; NEVER SELFISH ABOUT HAVING THE EASIER PATIENTS OR FEWER ADMISSIONS THAN OTHERS. OFTEN VOLUNTEERS TO SWITCH ASSIGNMENTS AND TAKES MORE DEMANDING PATIENTS SO SOMEONE ELSE CAN HAVE A BREAK FROM THEM. FOCUSED - IS ALWAYS SO PROFESSIONAL AND CARING. YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW THIS RN EVER HAD A BAD DAY AT HOME OR DIDN’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP OR HAD A SORE BACK. NEVER COMPLAINS AND WORKS SO HARD THEN LATER WE HEAR THEY HAD A SICK RELATIVE AND DIDN’T GET ANY SLEEP OR THAT THE FAVORITE PET DIED THAT DAY. THE PATIENTS WOULD NEVER KNOW ANYTHING WAS WRONG. OBSERVANT - CATCHES SMALL CHANGES THAT SAVE PEOPLE’S LIVES. HAS NOTICED SOMEONE WAS STARTING AN ANAPHYLACTIC REACTION, CAUGHT A MAJOR HEMATOMA IN SOMEONE’S PELVIS THAT NO ONE HAD DIAGNOSED, SAVED PEOPLE WITH GI BLEEDS, ETC.
