OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center is pleased to announce the most recent winner of the DAISY Award, which recognizes outstanding nursing care. Winners are nominated by patients and their families.
The January 2019 Daisy Award was presented to Heather Glassco from Dunlap. She works in the Neuroscience ICU. Her nomination from the family member of a patient reads:
She was kind and compassionate and went above and beyond. I firmly believe she was placed with us to help us through this difficult journey. She was an angel sent from God, and we cannot thank her enough for all the guidance, compassion, support and understanding she showed us during that difficult and emotionally stressful time.
The Daisy Award is a national endeavor that recognizes exemplary professional practice among nurses. OSF Saint Francis was the first hospital in the Midwest to participate in the program. Nurses who win receive a special pin and a bouquet of daisies.
