EvergreenHealth recently honored two nurses with the DAISY Award, a quarterly recognition that honors nurses who go above and beyond to provide exceptionally compassionate care.
Meagan Razor, a neonatal intensive care (NICU) nurse, was nominated for the DAISY Award by a new mother who was touched by Razor’s attentiveness and compassionate care. Carrie Luedecker, a nurse in the critical care unit, was nominated by a patient’s family member for providing excellent care to her loved one, but for going to extra lengths to care for the family, as well.
While her newborn son was being cared for in the NICU, a new mother nominated Razor for sharing the opportunity to experience her son’s first bath together as a family, instead of taking it on as a routine task herself.
In the mother’s words: “With a watchful (but not overbearing) eye, she encouraged us to take the reins, take our time, and savor our first activity together as a family of three. While we were doing so, unbeknownst to us, she took some pictures and videos that will be cherished forever!”
Luedecker was nominated by a patient’s family member for being instrumental in saving her sister’s life. The family member was grateful for Luedecker’s excellent care, not only for her sister, but for her and her family as well, noting that Luedecker would make up a bed in the room’s reclining chair and encourage her to rest.
In the release, the patient’s sister described that, “Most of all, her daily hugs gave me strength and courage, as well as relief knowing she was caring for my sister.”
