DAISY Award Presented to Bronson LakeView Hospital Nurse During 2018 Nurses' Week
Nurses throughout the Bronson Healthcare system were recognized during Nurses’ Week, from May 6 to 12, 2018. At Bronson LakeView Hospital, Latisha Long, RN, received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
Latisha, a nurse on the ambulatory care unit, was nominated by a former patient who felt Latisha went above and beyond to provide her with an exceptional hospital stay. “You can’t learn in books what comes from her soul,” her nomination reads. “Outside of being so dedicated to [my] needs, she never made me feel ashamed. She always had a smile, was kind and caring.”
The following nurses were also nominated for the Daisy Award: Nikki DeGroff, RN, CEN; Del Honda, RN; Kilah Jelsomeno, BSN, RN; Grace Lopez, BSN, RN; Lynn Miller, RN; Meredith Mitchell, RN; and Carol Ross, RN, CMSRN.
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. Nominations from patients, family members and clinical staff are accepted throughout the year.
