As a partner in the international DAISY Award program that recognizes nurses' extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care, OSF HealthCare St. Mary Medical Center recently awarded its DAISY Award to Hanna Swanson, RN. Hanna was awarded the DAISY Award for her companionate care. Her nomination read: "Hannah, you are an outstanding nurse. If I needed anything, all I needed was to have you by my side. Hannah is super friendly, courteous and caring. She does her job with zero complaints. She also is a good listener, which is a great asset to have, especially in stressful situations."
The Sunflower Award was recently awarded to Mindy Voegele, CNA, for receiving the Sunflower Award. Her nomination read: "Mindy showed compassion. She was very motivated and did a happy dance on all the progress I made. I loved it. She made my days a lot better and was reassuring."
