Bassett Healthcare Network Nurses Honored with DAISY Awards

Bassett Healthcare Network nursing leaders were pleased to present six nurses with DAISY Awards this month at locations across the network. 

"There is a special joy in giving out these awards," reflects Julie Rose, BSN, RN who serves as Bassett's DAISY Award Coordinator. "Each recipient's manager and coworkers are told ahead of time, but the honorees themselves don't find out until they are suddenly surrounded by leadership, coworkers and friends. It makes each award feel like the start of a surprise party."

Bassett's DAISY Award program recognizes six nurses for their exceptional care each quarter in addition to presenting two annual awards each fall. Each honoree receives a certificate, a hand-crafted statue, a pin to wear on their ID badges, flowers, and various benefits from the DAISY Foundation.

Here is the full slate of 2022 Fourth Quarter DAISY Award winners, along with a quote from their nomination.
