Congratulations to Heather Whitley, RN, on earning a DAISY Award! Heather is a HealthTrust nurse who works at TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center located just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
Heather was nominated for the DAISY Award by the hospital's Float Pool Supervisor for her passion and dedication to excellence in both patient care and nursing expertise. Her nomination can be read in full below:
"Heather works with us quite a bit and is like a member of our team. She is always kind, caring and attentive to her patients. She is truly a nurse with a servant heart. She is dedicated to quality patient care and a great patient experience. She is always a team player.
She receives compliments from staff often on her nursing skills and teamwork. She consistently receives compliments during patient rounding from patients and families. They often state she is so kind, compassionate, attentive and spends extra time to explain things and listen.
Most recently she came in on a holiday when she was not scheduled to work. It was on her off day. She had been caring for a patient that was not eating because she did not like the hospital food. But, while she was caring for the patient earlier in the week, she found out that this patient likes Panera Bread. So, Heather got her Panera Bread and brought it to this patient on the holiday.
We are constantly talking with our staff regarding connecting with our patients. Heather did this and went above and beyond to make a difference to this patient."
Please join us in congratulating Heather Whitley on earning a DAISY Award!
