Sarah Klobucher, BSN, RN, Sheryl Meyers, BSN, RN, NRP, Kendra Stonebraker, RN, and Michelle Wilson, BSN, RN, each received nominations for the award during the fourth quarter of 2019 for going above and beyond to provide an exceptional healthcare experience for their patients.
Patients, family members and colleagues may submit nominations for the DAISY Award. Below, read about the winners to find out why we recognize them for providing exceptional healthcare experiences.
- Sarah Klobucher, BSN, RN, is a nurse on the adult medical unit. “Talk about Bronson Positivity! Sarah tenderly cared for my mom with a bright smile, trying to make what is a dreary time in my mom’s life brighter. It is clear that for her, nursing isn’t just a job. It’s her passion.” Read Sarah’s full nomination letter (nomination 1) (nomination 2).
- Sheryl Meyers, BSN, RN, NRP, is a nurse on the labor and delivery unit. “Sheryl was our light in a stormy place [during my daughter’s difficult labor]. Sheryl really listened to my daughter and was able to read her non-verbal cues. Sheryl sensed when she was frightened and never failed to soothe her. Sheryl never made her feel that she was a pest for asking so many questions and having to be monitored so closely. We will always remember how Sheryl not only cared for my daughter and new granddaughter, but our entire family.” Read Sheryl’s full nomination letter.
- Kendra Stonebraker, RN, is a nurse on the medical intensive care unit. “There are not enough ‘thank you’s to adequately express the kindness that Kendra gave our family as our mom/grandma passed away. Kendra never made us move away from mom's bedside. She worked around us and made a difficult time so much easier. I know that this is part of her every day job, but we are all so impressed with the humanity that was shown to us.” Read Kendra’s full nomination letter.
- Michelle Wilson, BSN, RN, formerly worked as a pre-op nurse. “My dad was having surgery, and Michelle found out it was my 50th birthday. In addition to being so, so kind to my family, she brought to the waiting room an amazing gourmet cupcake for me. It made me feel so special and my birthday a little less overshadowed. This was an act of kindness that went a long way!” Read Michelle’s full nomination letter.

About the DAISY Award
The DAISY Award is supported by the not-for-profit DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation. Bonnie and J. Mark Barnes created this foundation and award as a way to remember their son, J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick had a disease that attacked his body and was in the hospital for a long time. His nurses did such a great job with him that the Barnes family created an award that continues to recognize the excellent work nurses do every day.
