Sky Lakes Medical Center is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner, recognizing one of our extraordinary nurses with this special honor each quarter.
The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary compassionate and skillful care given by nurses every day.
Our most recent DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing was awarded in June 2019 to Kevin J., RN, a nurse at Sky Lakes since 2013. Kevin was nominated by a patient's family and selected by a team of Sky Lakes employees based on rigorous criteria. Here's what the family said in the nomination:
Kevin showed extreme compassion for our family while caring for my father and always made sure that my mother and our family were taken care of. It is a clear indicator that he takes pride in what he does, and it shows in everything he does. Kevin allowed my father to have a dignified and peaceful end and our family is so very grateful for his care and compassion.
I can’t thank Kevin enough for his kind heart during out time of loss and I want to be sure that he is recognized for his outstanding and caring nature. People like Kevin are very hard to find and it lets me know that there are truly amazing people still out there.
