The September 2018 Mercy Health Muskegon DAISY Award winner is Connie Katafias, BSN, RN, from Clinical Informatics at the Hackley Campus. Connie was nominated by her peer, Becky Oldaker, BSN, RN.

“For several years, Connie has been working with Sacred Suds in the Hackley Campus neighborhood. Every other Thursday, Connie and another person provide meals, water, laundry soap and personal care items to Sacred Suds.”

“Sacred Suds is a small establishment that allows the under-served people in the neighborhood an opportunity to wash their clothes and shower for just a few cents. They previously provided lunch four days a week but now they only serve lunch on Thursdays because Connie is the only person who consistently delivers food. They feed between 30-60 people each time they do a lunch. Connie and the other person bring entrees, sides, fruit, water, coffee, hats and gloves to the under-served in our neighborhood, which includes some of our patients and families.”

Connie was honored with a surprise celebration in her department before her leader, peers and nursing leadership.
