Stefanie Davis, RN, BSN, pool nurse at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals Center City Campus in Philadelphia was honored on May 31 as a DAISY Award winner.
According to a news release, Davis was nominated by a nurse colleague who was moved by many acts of kindness she had witnessed Davis perform. The nominator gave specific examples of Davis acts of kindness to her patients.
“We have had some patients who had extended hospital stays,” the nominator wrote. “For one such patient, Stefanie brought in decorations purchased with her own money to decorate the patients room for Christmas. For another [patient], who hardly had any visitors, Stefanie gave her a stuffed bunny for comfort while asleep in bed. Stefanie also brought in some of her husbands clothes for a patient who was always cold and hated to wear the hospital gown and pants. I think that Stefanie is truly a special person whose love and generosity proves how deserving she is of a DAISY Award.”
