A nurse at Parkwest Medical Center was honored today 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 Jennifer, an RN on 2 Montvue for being recognized with the DAISY award.  Jennifer was nominated by a patient’s family member for providing excellent care and compassion to the family during their hospital stay. 

Jennifer’s Nomination

“JJ is extraordinary. I simply don’t know where to begin. She is perfect at her profession. Not only beyond knowledgeable regarding treating her patients medically but so very kind and patient. She treated us as though we were her only patient and I watched her go room to room treating each and every other patient at the exact same time. She is truly one in a million.

Parkwest is beyond blessed to have such a qualified, kind, personable, experienced, ‘do it all’ positive kind of employee. I could honestly go on and on. Not only does she assist her patient in every way possible but she goes out of her way to be sure the family is comfortable. She makes sure everyone is comfortable and answers any questions or concerns. There were several times she talked with us and answered questions we had with great knowledge, kindness and honesty. She truly cares about her patients and their families. We are all in awe of her ability to not only do her job but to do it with all the grace, kindness and patience anyone could ask for.

JJ is such a large asset to this hospital. I cannot possibly express that enough or even begin to put it into words that gives her the full credit she deserves. We are overwhelmed with gratitude. She has made this incredibly difficult experience as pleasant as anyone possibly could. Thank you to JJ. Please use her as an example of how all nurses should be.”
