At a ceremony held last week at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital, a registered nurse was honored for the extraordinary, compassionate care she provides daily in her role. Ann Lane, a registered nurse in the hospital’s L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center, received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses ®.
Lane, who has served at the hospital for 25 years, was nominated by a former patient. “Nurse Ann is one of the most caring and genuine health care professionals that I have ever met. She listened to me and gave advice about recovery that could have easily come from my own relatives. She is truly an empathetic person. Detox is an unpleasant experience but Ann made it better whenever she was around,” wrote the patient in a nomination letter.
“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 to patients every day.”
