|Mary Mooney, RN Receives the April DAISY Award|
Congratulations to Mary Mooney, RN who is the DAISY Award recipient for April, 2009. Mary works on 4NW.
The DAISY Award is presented monthly to an All Children's Hospital Nurse that has provided extraordinary service to our patients.
Mary decided to become a nurse after her daughter was a patient at All Children's in our NICU and Early Steps Program. Mary saw the dedication and commitment of the staff and wanted to be a part of this team. Mary attended St. Petersburg College and joined ACH as a patient care assistant on 4NW and then transitioned to an RN. She has been a nurse at All Children's since completing nursing school seven years ago.
The person that nominated Mary stated that while Mary was caring for a newborn, she was persistent in expressing concerns about symptoms to the appropriate staff. Because of this, the patient received a diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner. They also said that Mary has superb assessment, communication and persuasive skills. This child's story ended up being a happy one because Mary was his nurse!
Congratulations Mary on a job well done!
