Daisy Award Honorees - May 2011

Honorees' reactions to winning the May 2011 Daisy Award:

Lacie Katz

I am so grateful for the nomination, and extremely humbled by it. The best part of the DAISY award ceremony was being able to personally thank the patient and her parents who nominated me.

April Max

It’s very rewarding to me as a St. Jude nurse to be recognized by one of our patients.

Jody Newell

I can tell you that I was completely shocked at winning the award and overwhelmed by the letter that was read from one of our parents in MRI. Most people that are going to take the time to sit down and write a letter are going to do it when they are upset about something. Not very many people write a lengthy letter when they are pleased with the care they have received. It just goes to show you how much we as bedside nurses can do to impact the lives of our patients and families. Thanks!
