The Professional Practice Council at Nazareth Hospital in Philadelphia recently recognized the hospitals DAISY Award recipient for the third quarter of 2013 Lisa Bell, RN, BSN, CCS, a med/surg nurse.
Bell was presented with the award Sept. 5 by Michael F. Beshel, RN, BSN, MBA, MHA, NE-BC, vice president of patient care services and CNO.
Bell was nominated by a patients daughter.
[Bell] is an amazing, kind, caring employee who goes out of her way to help patients and their families, the nominator wrote. Lisa is available it seems like 24/7. She has gone above and way beyond to help me to get my mother situated. Lisa made things so much easier to handle while my optimism decreased. She assured me things would go smoothly and they did. I look forward to again dealing with Nazareth and with Lisa.
Patients, visitors, physicians, other nurses or team members can nominate a Nazareth nurse for the DAISY Award. One recipient is selected each quarter.
