The October 2017 DAISY Award recipient is Terri McPheron, RN from the 3rd floor on the Mercy Health Mercy Campus. Terri was nominated by her peer, Nichole Lamb, RN, as well as Holly Knowles, PAC, from Specialists in Hospital Medicine. The following is an excerpt from her nomination form:
Terri was recently taking care of a cancer patient who was depressed because his hair was falling out in clumps. On her day off, and during a holiday weekend, Terri came in with her clippers to give this patient a haircut. During a discharge phone call, he said that Terri went above and beyond to make him feel comfortable. He couldn’t believe that she came in on a Saturday to take care of him. He was very grateful.
Terri was honored with a surprise celebration on her unit before her leaders and peers. To nominate a well deserving nurse, please complete this nomination form.
