Danielle Apadula, RN, Mother-Infant Unit, Receives Hahnemann University Hospital's First Quarter 2017 DAISY Award

Danielle Apadula, RN, 16NT Mother-Infant Unit, was recognized as Hahnemann University Hospital's first quarter 2017 DAISY Award recipient. Danielle was nominated for her caring and insight.

A patient nominated Danielle for the DAISY Award, and shared this as their reason for her selection:
“A patient stated that it was her first time and experience at Hahnemann and she was nervous. But once Danielle came into the patient’s room, they were relieved. Danielle was sweet and charming and checked on the patient and their family frequently. She made sure time after time that they had everything that was needed. The family felt that Danielle shared some great advice and made their stay very pleasant. The patient stated that because of the incredible care Danielle provided she would definitely feel comfortable coming back to Hahnemann.”

Hahnemann University Hospital selects a nurse every quarter to receive the DAISY Award. During an awards ceremony, the recipient is presented with a sculpture called “A Healer’s Touch.” The piece is hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.

DAISY Foundation was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. The care Patrick and his family received while he was ill inspired them to create the DAISY Awards as a way to recognize and thank nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of patients and their families.

Congratulations to Danielle, Hahnemann’s first quarter 2017 DAISY Award recipient.
