CarePartners Extraordinary Nurse – DAISY Award Honoree (May 2018)

During Nurses Week, Mission Health recognized our extraordinary nurses across our region by honoring them with a DAISY Award. Congratulations to CarePartners’ honoree for the 2018 DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses!

Heather Garry, RN, Internal Staffing – CarePartners

Nomination from a patient’s family

“My father was recently a patient in CarePartners and for a couple of days he had Heather Garry as his nurse.  We just wanted to express how thankful we all were for her being such a kind, compassionate, caring and friendly nurse.  She went out of her way to make his stay and our lives easier.

His condition caused some nausea and vomiting problems when he was overstimulated visually and he had a roommate move in that required a lot of bedside activity.  She picked up on that and let me know that she’d requested he be in a room without a roommate.  Unbeknownst to us and to her apparently Dad’s physical therapist Jeff had also requested that Dad be alone in a room due to the same reason.

We are very appreciative that they were looking out for him.  My father had some frustrating days and wasn’t always an easy patient but she was amazing.  We felt like we had lost a friend when we said goodbye to her.

You are very lucky to have such a wonderful person taking care of your patients.”

 A big WooHoo! and congratulations to all of our extraordinary nurses!
