Flaget Memorial Hospital Honors Employees with Daisy and Rose Awards
Bardstown, Ky. (August 9, 2018) — Flaget Memorial Hospital has named its Daisy Award and Rose Award winners for the second quarter of 2018. Marlene Hardin, RN, Skilled Nursing Unit, received the Daisy Award. Jan Simpson, Social Worker, Care Coordination and Social Services received the Rose Award.
The Daisy Award is a nationwide program that celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. Flaget Memorial Hospital is proud to be a Daisy Award Partner, recognizing a nurse with this special honor every quarter. This quarter, Hardin was nominated for the Daisy Award by two of her patients from the Skilled Nursing Unit.
“I stayed in the hospital for a week and was in a lot of pain,” one of the patients said. “Marlene was always so observant and would go the extra mile. Before leaving, she would always ask if I needed anything else. The little things like that meant a lot.”
Similar to the Daisy Award, the Rose Award is a program that honors Flaget Memorial Hospital’s non-nursing personnel. The Rose Award, short for Recognition of Service Excellence, celebrates unsung heroes who work tirelessly to provide the best possible service.
“From arrival to departure, I had peace of mind as a patient because of Jan,” the patient who nominated her said. “She answered all of my questions and concerns, and reassured me.”
The Daisy Award winner received a certificate, Daisy Award pin and a hand-carved stone sculpture. The Rose Award winner was honored with a certificate, Rose Award pin and a bouquet of roses to display in her department.
