Bronson South Haven Hospital Nurse Receives Nursing Award for Providing Extraordinary Care
In honor of National Nurses' Week, Bronson South Haven Hospital recognized an extraordinary nurse.
Between May 8 and 12, 2017, nurses throughout the Bronson system were celebrated for their hard work and dedication to the nursing profession. At Bronson South Haven Hospital, Amanda Quinn, BSN, RN, received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award recognizes nurses who go above and beyond their call of duty to provide exceptional patient care.
Quinn, an emergency department nurse, was nominated by a coworker for her ability to provide a high caliber of patient care, always keeping the unique needs of her patients and their families a top priority. Her nomination says “She is emotionally connected and professional at the same time. Patient safety is always her top priority. She always makes sure things run smoothly, but isn’t afraid to ask for help when she needs it.”
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 South Haven Hospital is partnering with the DAISY Foundation to recognize outstanding nurses. Forms from patients, family members and clinical staff are accepted throughout the year.
