Evan Boguszewski, RN, 20 NT, Receives Hahnemann University Hospital's April/May 2018 DAISY Award

Evan Boguszewski.jpgEvan Boguszewski, RN, 20 NT, was recognized as Hahnemann University Hospital's April/May 2018 DAISY Award recipient. Evan was nominated for her compassion and selflessness. 

A physician nominated Evan for the DAISY Award, and shared this as their reason for their selection: 

“An older gentleman with end-stage heart disease, who was caring for his wife at the time, was admitted to Hahnemann University Hospital after an injury. The patient was emaciated to the point that they were too weak to swallow without aspirating. In just one week, the patient’s heart failure stabilized, and with nutritional support, he was able to swallow and eat soft solids. During their hospitalization, Evan recognized the patient’s love for food, so decided to go to Whole Foods to get him some tomato soup and some frosted cookies. This was a pure and random act of kindness for the patient and made a huge difference in their overall experience.”

Hahnemann University Hospital selects a nurse every two months 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 Evan, Hahnemann’s April/May 2018 DAISY Award recipient.
