Hannah Douglas, RN, receives DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

Congratulations to Hannah Douglas, RN, from the  Emergency Department at Skagit Valley Hospital

Hannah Douglas, RN receives DAISY Award

The  DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses recognizes and honors the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day. This award is presented to nurses who have been nominated as an outstanding role model for their clinical skill and providing compassionate care.

Read the story included on Hannah's nomination form

"We had a very challenging, developmentally delayed patient in the ED that was agitated and in/out of a soma bed. The family brought her in as they were unable to care for her at home any longer and her parents had recently passed away. This patient's world had been totally turned upside down. Her parents were gone and she was now out of the only home she had ever known.

The patient wouldn't sleep and was agitated in an ED room. Hannah was seen by ED staff in the room calmly caring for the patient and singing children's songs to her to keep her calm most of the night. You can't teach a nurse this skill - this is an exceptional gift and I want to recognize Hannah as one who has this."
