Lourdes Health System in Camden, N.J., recently named ICU nurse Aniqa Munir, RN, Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County in Willingboro, N.J.; and med/surg nurse Mary McGinty, RN, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, as its DAISY Award winners for the second quarter of 2013.
Munir, of Willingboro, was honored for her compassion and professionalism. According to a nomination letter, The doctor prescribed a regimen for my dad and Aniqa carried it out with professionalism and total care and compassion. He is still in the woods, but Lord willing he will survive. In my heart, Aniqas care and professional manner played the biggest role in his turnaround.
McGinty, of Sewell, N.J., was honored for patient-centered care and her ability to comfort patients and their family members. One nomination letter stated, My beloved uncle was admitted to the hospital. I live an hour away and have small boys at home. Mary was so kind and helpful. She took the time to talk with me on the phone and in-person. Mary should be rewarded for her dedication to the patients and the hospital.
The DAISY award is presented to a nurse from each of the Lourdes hospitals every quarter.
