Announcing our newest Daisy Award Winner, Ellyn Smith, RN – BSN, Ambulatory Care. Ellyn was recently honored with a Daisy Award on the recommendation of a patient testimonial which stated the following, ““Ellyn was my nurse when I came in for a procedure. From the time I was in the room for pre-op to when I returned she treated me in every way like I was her only patient. Making sure I was comfortable and constantly checking back while I was recovering. That may not seem odd but the exact same thing was going on in a room across from me. She approached the patient exactly the same. Before she came to ambulatory care I witnessed this same kind of interaction, care and compassion with patients she dealt with in her other unit. A great nurse in my definition treats everyone with compassion, respect, great individual care. Ellyn Smith knocks it out of the park.” We couldn’t agree more, congratulations, Ellyn!
