Daisy Award Winner Named at OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois
OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois 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 October 2017 Daisy Award was presented to Danielle Lindberg from Morton. She works in the Pediatric Acute Care unit. Her nomination from a patient reads:
I think Danielle is very deserving of the Daisy Award. I was involved in a serious accident and I have a lot of injuries. For three days I was unable to move or talk, yet somehow Danielle brightened my day, kept me encouraged, learned things about me and made sure my mom and dad were ok. Danielle's care for me was beyond more than just medical care that every nurse is expected to provide.
The Daisy Award is a national endeavor that recognizes exemplary professional practice among nurses. Nurses who win receive a special pin and a bouquet of daisies.
