At a ceremony held yesterday morning at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital, a registered nurse was honored for the extraordinary, compassionate care she provides daily in her role. Sarah Hendrickson, a registered nurse in the hospital’s Women and Infants Center, received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses ®.

Hendrickson, who has served at the hospital for eight years, was nominated by her patient.

“Sarah was kind, compassionate and caring. She advocated for me when I was in too much pain during labor to advocate for myself. She supported me, encouraged me, and she held me when I quite literally couldn't hold myself up anymore. The Women and Infants department is tremendously blessed to have Sarah on their team, and so is every mother who is lucky enough to be a patient of hers.”

Nominees were also recognized at the ceremony.

“Nurses are extraordinary every day,” said Jennifer Drayton, chief nursing officer at HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals. “The DAISY award was created to honor and recognize nurses who provide extraordinary care with kindness and compassion to patients every day.”
