Nurses at CHI St. Alexius Health are being honored with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses ®.  This award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s mission to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care they provide patients and families every day. 

The Nurse being awarded with this honor is Vanessa Scott, RN in Med-Surg/ ICU. We would like to share the nomination in which Vanessa is being recognized.

“During my stay in ICU when I was COVID positive, Vanessa was so professional. She always ensured the room was set so I always had access to the things I needed….She was always on top of her nursing care and didn’t ever get frazzled.  I could tell as a patient that she had the desire to help me because she wanted to, not because she had to.” – Patient

The DAISY Award Honoree receives a Certificate commending them as an “Extraordinary Nurse” and a DAISY Award pin. The Honoree also receives a beautiful sculpture called A Healer’s Touch, hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Zimbabwe.
