Sally goes above-and-beyond her normal roles and duties as a nurse

Four nurses from Bronson Methodist Hospital recently received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is given out on a quarterly basis and celebrates nurses who go above-and-beyond to provide an exceptional healthcare experience for their patients and the family members of patients.

Sally, one of the 2019 Q1 recipients, was recognized by a colleague who shares:

Recently, I witnessed Sally going above-and-beyond her normal roles and duties to provide excellent care for a patient. There was a patient on the unit for a few weeks who was lonely and confused. They didn’t have many, if any, visitors during the length of their stay. One day, Sally was their nurse. She took time out of her busy day to sit and visit with the patient. In the days to come, Sally would check on the patient, visit with them, and make sure their needs were met. Sally even bought the patient brand new clothes and hygiene supplies to help them feel more comfortable during their time with us. Sometimes it’s the little things like kindness, compassion, and companionship that make a patient feel more comfortable during their hospital stay. Sally deserves to be recognized for practicing these gestures that can sometimes be so easily forgotten in the rush of our day-to-day routines.
