The Daisy Award
Wendy Ogren, RN (MSSU)
Congratulations to Wendy Ogren, RN (MSSU) for receiving the DAISY award in October! The DAISY Award is given through a nationally known program currently in place in over 2,124 healthcare facilities. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System and this award was established by a family whose son succumbed to a disease of the immune system. During his prolonged hospital stay, he and his family greatly benefited from care provided by superb RNs. This award was established to honor nurses who exemplify that compassionate, thorough care. Within the University of Michigan Health System, candidates for the Daisy Award are nominated by patients and/or their families. This is a wonderful honor. Paul has received multiple Daisy nominations.
This nomination letter was sent by a very grateful patient on MSSU, in November.
"I was a patient in the MSSU this past November, and my overnight nurse was amazing! I am very soft spoken and don't like to complain, but I was in a great deal of discomfort. Wendy took the time to listen to my concerns and issues, then went out of her way to communicate with my doctors. You may say, "she was just doing her job", but in my previous experiences, my issues had not been communicated to the appropriate medical staff. Wendy also took the time to comfort me when I was afraid. She showed so much concern that even though I was in the hospital alone, I felt as though I had someone that actually cared about my health, safety and recovery with me. Not everyone is capable of expressing that type of empathy, and I will never forget the kindness showed to me. Wendy was also a calming presence to my mother and reassured her that she only had my best interests at heart. This made my mother feel comfortable enough to leave my bedside. I would love nothing more than to nominate Wendy for the Daisy Award. She was the most caring, honest, reliable nurse that I have ever encountered. I truly appreciate her!"
Here is the link for Wendy's story and pictures from the Daisy Award last week. Please feel free to share the link with co-workers, family and friends.
