For the first time, nurses at Trinity Homes have received the Sunflower Award and the DAISY Award.
On April 5, Tawny Quist, CNA, a nurse on 4 East, received the Sunflower Award, which
recognizes the compassionate care and extraordinary services provided by CNAs every day.
“Tawny has absolutely gone up and beyond her job in helping us during my husband’s stay here,” the nomination form read. “She was the first person we met here, and she has done so many extras that she certainly wouldn’t have had to do. She’s a gem.”
Then, on April 15, Geri Albea, RN, a nurse on 3 East, received the DAISY Award, an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. Trinity Health is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this special honor each month.
She “is very compassionate, and it shows in her work,” the nomination read. “She is the voice of residents that don’t have one. She doesn’t show favoritism and cares for everyone equally. She helps when it’s needed and is there when you need it the most. We need more people in the world like Geri. She makes my day so much better and I don’t know what we would do without her on 3 East.”
DAISY Award honorees personify Trinity Health’s remarkable patient experience. These nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care, and they are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community.
Albea noted that the importance teamwork plays in nursing, and that without the help of her colleagues, she wouldn’t be as successful as she is.If you would like to nominate a nurse for the DAISY or Sunflower award, visit:
