Ascension At Home honored Brittney Meyers, RN, for being the “best of the best” during their second quarter DAISY Award ceremony on June 28.
Brittney was nominated by a patient’s family that shared, “Brittney will always hold a very special place in our hearts, and in Dad’s heart for the love and compassion that was shown to him; not only as a patient but as a human being. She truly treated him like he was one of her own family members and would not accept any failures or issues, but only complete success. There is not enough ‘thank you’s’ in the world that would be enough for what your team did for my family!”
This is the third year Ascension At Home has been participating in the DAISY Award program. Recipients are selected quarterly, based on their clinical expertise and demonstration of extraordinary compassionate care. The winners receive a certificate that reads: “In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people.” The honoree is also given a pin and a hand-carved sculpture called “A Healer’s Touch,” created by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.
The DAISY Award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, Calif., and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), an auto-immune disease. To learn more, go to www.daisyfoundation.org.
