Bardstown, Ky. (February 5, 2016)— Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, has named 2016 fourth quarter Daisy and Rose Award winners. Stephanie Brockman RN, critical care, has been named a Daisy Award winner and Linda Reed C.N.A., critical care, has been named a Rose Award winner.
The Daisy Award is a nationwide program that celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care provided by nurses every day. Flaget Memorial Hospital is proud to be a Daisy Award Partner, recognizing one nurse with this special honor every quarter.
Stephanie Brockman was nominated for the Daisy Award by her colleague Joshua Wethington, manager, critical care.

“Stephanie’s extracurricular activities demonstrate her professionalism,” said Wethington. “She embodies the fundamental skills necessary to be an RN and is an invaluable resource to others.”
The Rose Award is a program that honors Flaget Memorial’s non-nursing personnel. The award recognizes that in order for the hospital to achieve its goal to make every patient’s experience the best health care experience the best ever, it takes a total team effort from every employee of the organization.
