The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. Davie Medical Center recognizes one of its nurses with this special honor twice a year. Each honoree receives a banner, certificate, DAISY Award pin and a hand carved “A Healer’s Touch” stone sculpture.
“I became a nurse so that I could try my best to help make someone's terrible day a little bit better,” Daniels said. “I have had severe asthma my whole life and up until recently, I have been in and out of the emergency department with multiple hospital admissions and ICU stays. The inability to breathe is terrifying, that is why I know there is a huge difference in the impact that can be made from the care received. I have always valued my experiences and try to apply them to an empathetic approach to nursing.”
The next DAISY Award winner will be announced in late spring of 2023.
