Barb Martin, R.N., was presented with Carroll Hospital Center's December DAISY Award. A nurse at the hospital for seven years, Martin was honored for her extraordinary care of a critically ill patient who was very anxious about her condition. Martin went over and above her duties to constantly reassure the patient and displayed compassion and kindness throughout the patient's hospital stay.
"Barb is an exceptional nurse whose compassion, kindness and individualized care allows all her patients to feel that they are her only patients," Stephanie Reid, R.N., B.S.N., M.B.A., vice president of quality and chief nursing officer at Carroll Hospital Center, said. "It's this level of care that the DAISY Award was designed to recognize and makes Barb highly deserving of this honor."
Carroll Hospital Center's DAISY Award was created to honor outstanding health care professionals at the hospital. It is given to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse each month to recognize their extraordinary patient care.
