Daisy Award Presented
BERLIN – Atlantic General Hospital awarded the DAISY Award for excellence in nursing to registered nurse Anne Watson-Waples at a recent presentation.
Watson-Waples has worked in the ICU for 11 years. She was Atlantic General Hospital’s 2015 Nurse of the Year, nominated by a team of peers and leadership from the hospital. This is her second DAISY award.
One nomination Watson-Waples received stated, “My wife was dying and afraid. Nurse Watson-Waples provided professional assistance but, more importantly she provided comfort to my wife during this tragic time … She showed kindness, and compassion while performing her many duties in ICU. She lifted my wife’s spirits allowing her to address the inevitable end of her life. When my wife was in hospice, Anne Watson-Waples visited, stating only that she ‘was in the area and decided to stop by’.”
Watson-Waples said, “I am once again humbled by this recognition. Some of the greatest moments in my life will always be the bonds I’ve developed and the care I’ve given my patients and their families. It will always be about them.”
Patients and visitors can nominate an Atlantic General Hospital and Health System nurse for the DAISY Award at any time. Nomination forms are available in every hospital department and health system physician office. Awards are bestowed quarterly.
