SPRING VALLEY - St. Margaret’s Health has announced this year’s winner of the DAISY Award, Karisa King, Special Procedures.

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way.

St. Margaret’s also congratulated all of this year’s nominees for being recognized by a patient or family member for exceptional care. The nominees include Kasie Linder- Henry Clinic, Taylor Myers- ER, Alicia Luna- Second Medical, Kylee Schwanke- SDS/PAR, Bill Heinrich- ICU, Ashley Klieber- Second Medical, Eva Ambler- SPRO, Betty Bassetti- OB, Hayden Sartin- ER, Maddi Gloria- SDS/PAR, Sue Johnson- Dr. Louie’s Office, Kat Polich- SDS/PAR, Holly Jelm- SDS/PAR, and Caitlin Hungerford- OR.
