Recognizing The Good Work Our Nurses Do
Fatima Daisy Award
Congratulations to Rachael Kazarian, a telemetry registered nurse on 3 Pavilion, for receiving Fatima’s DAISY Award for this quarter. This national recognition program honors nurses for their clinical skill and compassion. Nominations are received by patients, families or visitors and are reviewed anonymously by the nurse recognition committee. An excerpt from her nomination: “Rachel is a true angel. This woman showed so much respect to my mom. She is a loving, caring person who was born to be a nurse. My mom was a patient and she has dementia, so I would come in each day to sit with her and help feed her. I spent a lot of time watching how Rachel was with my mom and her co-workers. She was responsive to my questions and concerns, explained everything she was doing and everything she was going to do. Fatima is blessed to have her.” Congratulations Rachel!
