Stephanie Butler, Director of Marketing and Communications at Clinton Memorial Hospital, spoke to the Wilmington Rotary Club which meets at noon on Tuesdays at the CMH meeting room
Butler spoke about the DAISY Award. The DAISY Foundation, created to express gratitude by a family that experienced extraordinary nursing, is the international leader in meaningful recognition of nurses.
Everyone who is involved with DAISY, whether they are presenting the awards, choosing honorees, or coordinating the program, is an extension of this family and their expression of this gratitude.
DAISY proudly honors nurses wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve, and throughout their careers- from nursing student through lifetime achievement.
The DAISY Foundation expresses gratitude to Nurses with programs that recognize them for the extraordinary compassionate, skillful care they provide patients and families. By honoring compassionate nurses, DAISY reinforces the importance of compassion in healthcare.
The Daisy Award is awarded two times a year at CMH. Nominations are made by families, patients and staff. It takes approximately two months to read all the nominations, choose the recipient and determine the presentation celebration.
Butler stated that there have been three DAISY Award recipients since she began the program at CMH.
