Flaget Memorial Hospital Honors Employees with Daisy and Rose Awards

Bardstown, Ky. (February 12, 2018) — Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, has named Daisy Award and Rose Award winners for the fourth quarter of 2017. Paige Cissell, RN, intensive care unit and transitional care unit at Flaget Memorial Hospital, was the recipient of the Daisy Award. Jennifer Burba, patient access representative, Flaget Memorial Hospital, 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. KentuckyOne Health is proud to be a Daisy Award Partner, recognizing a nurse with this special honor every quarter.

Cissell was nominated by a fellow RN for the exceptional care she gave them during their inpatient stay.

“I recently was on the other side and had to be the patient,” the fellow RN said. ”I was fortunate to have had Paige as my nurse for two days of my hospital stay. She was attentive, caring and provided exceptional care. I have a feeling that Paige provides the same kind of care to all of her patients, and not just fellow nurses. I could not have asked for better care and Flaget Memorial Hospital is blessed to have her as an employee.”

Similarly, 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.

Jennifer Burba was nominated by a patient for going above and beyond for them when they appeared in the emergency department.

“When I had to go to the ER after a motorcycle accident, Jennifer was very helpful and friendly,” the patient said. “It truly made me feel at ease during my time at Flaget Memorial Hospital.”  

The Daisy Award winner will receive a certificate, Daisy Award pin and a hand carved stone sculpture. The Rose Award winner is honored with a certificate, Rose Award pin and a bouquet of roses to display in her department.
