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.

The DAISY Award was presented to Lindsey Moore, RN, from 2 Montvue, our Neurosciences Unit.  Lindsey was nominated by the Rauhuff family for the wonderful care she provided during Mr. Rauhuff’s stay.

“My husband’s nurse Lindsey is so kind, helpful, and understanding to our needs and comfort in his recovery. She has been fantastic. She has truly gone the extra mile to make sure that everything is going as well as possible in every way. We feel that she is truly special because she makes you feel that way, and her love of helping others is truly evident. You can tell that she loves her job, and loves being a nurse and helping others in their time of need, love, care and understanding.

Lindsey is so compassionate and understanding to her patient’s needs. She helps brighten our situation. We feel that she has given our family exceptional service and comfort. For this we are truly grateful. She is truly remarkable. We are so grateful to Lindsey for everything. Just knowing that she is our nurse – when we see her – makes our day so much better. We know that Rex will have the best care possible – and she truly cares. We thank you Lindsey for everything. You have been a bright ray of sunshine in our lives, in Rex’s recovery, and we are truly grateful. Thank you so much!”

The DAISY Committee presented Lindsey with a pin, a certificate, daisies, The Healer’s Touch sculpture, and cinnamon rolls for her entire department to share. Congratulations to Heather! We appreciate her passion for nursing, and her commitment to always putting her patients first!
