Bronson LakeView Hospital Nurse Receives Nursing Award for Providing Extraordinary Care
In honor of National Nurses' Week, Bronson LakeView Hospital recognized an extraordinary nurse.
Between May 9 and 13, 2016, nurses throughout the Bronson system were celebrated for their hard work and dedication to the nursing profession. Bronson LakeView Hospital nurse, Brenda Potter, BSN, RN, received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
Potter, a nurse in the acute care unit, was nominated by a former patient who felt Potter went above and beyond to provide her with an exceptional hospital stay. The patient explained that “Brenda is extremely helpful and thoughtful. She made me feel like it was an honor to serve me.” In reading the nomination, it is clear that Potter views her role as a nurse not only as a job, but as a passion. “She lifted my spirits. Her attitude made my stay more tolerable. She had a way of reassuring me with her smile, letting me know that everything was going to be fine.”
The following nurses were also nominated for the Daisy Award:
Anna Beavers, RN
Donna Dominguez, RN
Erica Huizenga, MSN, RN
Haley Koning, RN
Hannah Roach, BSN, RN

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. He 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.
Bronson LakeView Hospital is partnering with the DAISY Foundation to recognize outstanding nurses. Forms from patients, family members and clinical staff are accepted throughout the year.
