Christy Knight, a registered nurse in Coffee Regional Medical Center’s Labor & Delivery Unit, was named the DAISY winner for the first quarter of 2020. CRMC staff presented her with the award at a ceremony held on Oct. 7. She was nominated twice by fellow employees for going above and beyond to ensure her patients are cared for in a professional and compassionate manner.
COVID-19 has delayed recognition ceremonies this year. CRMC will hold ceremonies for the second and third quarter winners soon.
Honoring nurses internationally, The DAISY Foundation was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. His family was positively impacted by the nurses who skillfully and compassionately cared for Patrick during his eight-week hospitalization. They wanted a way to honor their loved one and chose to recognize nurses everywhere for their dedication. The DAISY Foundation was created in 1999 and has been utilized by over 3,400 healthcare facilities in the U.S. and worldwide.
Nurses may be nominated by anyone in the organization and those outside the organization – patients, family members, other nurses, physicians, and other clinicians and staff – anyone who experiences or observes extraordinary & compassionate care.
Coffee Regional Medical Center would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Christy and all the nominees. Your hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed. CRMC would like to offer a special thanks to each of our dedicated caregivers. Thank you for all you do each day to care for our patients (and each other) while staying true to Our Purpose; To Serve, To Heal, To Save.
