A nurse at Parkwest Medical Center was honored this morning with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. The DAISY Award was established in 1999 by the family of a patient who had received extraordinary care and compassion from his nurses during his final days. Congratulations to Ashley an RN, on 5 Riverstone for being recognized with the DAISY award. Ashley was nominated by a patient for providing excellent customer service and high level of care.

Ashley’s Nomination

Words cannot express the professionalism Ashley displayed in my care. With the state of affairs this is going on in the world, Ashley gave me a great peace with a huge friendly smile and she made sure to say she was going to take great care of me. I knew for sure I was in very competent hands. Her beautiful smile eased my fears throughout her shift. I could not believe how many times she checked on me and made sure I did not need anything.

The icing on the cake was right before she departed. She came in the room and introduced me to her relief and made sure he knew everything that was going on with me and brought him up to full speed about my cardiac/stroke like symptoms.

I would be elated to hear that Ashley received a DAISY Award for her outstanding customer service and professional care. Due to her hard work, I would highly recommend my family, friends, and church family to Parkwest for their award winning care for their patients. 

Ashley got the ball rolling for my amazing experience with my first heart cath procedure.

 Ashley was presented with a certificate,  a pin, daisy arrangement, The Healer’s Touch sculpture and cinnamon rolls for her and her department to enjoy! Congratulations to Ashley! We appreciate her dedication to nursing and for always going above and beyond for her patients!
