HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital presented the quarterly National DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses to Jennifer Nesbit, RN, in the telemetry unit.  The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's nationwide program to recognize the superhuman efforts nurses perform every day. 

A colleague nominated Nesbit for the DAISY award, acknowledging Jennifer’s supportiveness toward her patients and their families. She engages with them and advocates for them while also encouraging them to always ask questions and share concerns. The nomination noted, “Jennifer not only is a true advocate for our patients and their family but continuously goes above and beyond for them to get answers and communicate with providers. Jennifer did more than just take care of her patients; she treated them as family and showed our Mission through her work and lives our Core Values.”  

In addition to Nesbit, nominations were received for over 53 other dedicated St. Elizabeth’s nurses for this quarter. Nominations for future DAISY and other awards at St. Elizabeth’s continue to be accepted. Patients and visitors are encouraged to share and submit their story of witnessing excellent and compassionate care from staff.

Distribution of the nationally recognized DAISY Award at St. Elizabeth’s is made possible through funds provided by HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital Foundation.
