Flaget Memorial Hospital Honors Employees with Daisy and Rose Awards

Bardstown, Ky. (September 15, 2017) — Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, has named Daisy Award and Rose Award winners for the second quarter of 2017. Joanele Cecil, RN, Flaget Cancer Center, was the recipient of the Daisy Award. Lisa Theis, patient access representative, Flaget Cancer Center, 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.

Cecil was nominated by a patient’s family member who shared their appreciation of the exceptional nursing care she has given with every round of chemotherapy treatment thus far. Cecil is known for ensuring that patients receive high-quality care and satisfaction.

“At every treatment, she treats us with kindness and respect,” said the patient’s family member. “She is quick to respond when we ask questions or request something, even at times lightening the mood with a laugh.”

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.

Lisa Theis was nominated by many of her colleagues at the Flaget Cancer Center. Theis is being honored for her work within the hospital, going above and beyond her duties on a daily basis, and being a patient advocate and role model for patient safety.

“Recently, a patient presented for their daily radiation treatment and Lisa noticed the patient didn’t look quite right,” said Maggie Smith, supervisor, Flaget Cancer Center. “She trusted her instincts and alerted a nurse to the patient’s changing condition. Upon assessment, it was determined the patient needed additional medical attention. Thanks to Lisa, the patient received quick and appropriate care for their health issue.”

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.
