Griffin Health recently honored Bridget Robinson, RN, with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s mission to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate care nurses provide patients and families every day. Winners can be nominated by patients, patients’ family or friends, or fellow caregivers for their exemplary care.
Robinson, a nurse in Griffin’s 2 North A inpatient unit, was nominated by a fellow caregiver for the expertise and positive spirit she brings to her unit and the compassionate and for the responsive care she provides to patients and their loved ones.
“The empathy Bridget has for patients and staff is unmeasurable,” the nomination for Robinson stated. “I’ve seen her many times take the initiative to help staff both seasoned and new. No task is beneath her. She is a natural leader, and I know when she is in charge, we are going to have a great day. She is an all-around great nurse.”
Information about the DAISY Award is included in Griffin Health patient information packets and nomination forms are available online and at all Griffin Health locations. The award recipients are chosen by a committee at Griffin and the award is presented throughout the year. For more information, visit griffinhealth.org/daisy.
About The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.
