Cathryn Ebinger, R.N., B.S.N., C.C.R.N., wins Daisy Award at Crozer-Keystone

Cathryn Ebinger, R.N., B.S.N., C.C.R.N. is congratulated by team members
of the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center as she receives
her DAISY Award from Eileen Young, M.S.N., R.N., vice president and chief
nursing officer for Crozer-Keystone, on May 9, 2015.


Upland, Pa – Crozer-Keystone recently recognized Cathryn Ebinger, R.N., B.S.N., C.C.R.N., a nurse from the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center in Upland, as a recipient of the DAISY Award. Nurses that receive this significant accomplishment are chosen based on their ability to consistently meet all of the following criteria: Dedicated, Autonomous, Innovative, Selfless and Extraordinary.

Ebinger was nominated for this award for being an inspiration through her character and nursing skills. In March, a senior nursing student from Widener University arrived at the Crozer Burn Center for her practicum and upon her arrival met Ebinger. Without hesitation, Ebinger switched her assignment as a charge nurse to being a staff nurse for this shift so that she could be the preceptor for the student.

On the nomination, the student commented, “Cathryn was generous with her time, instructions and explaining each step as we went along. I was so impressed with her interactions and care of her patients, their families and the healthcare team. Her unselfish act of helping me was inspiring so that I can remember to give back to others. Cathryn is a wonderful example of how to give excellent patient care in a very difficult situation for patients who have received severe burn injuries.”

Daisy Foundation and Daisy Award

The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died in 1999 at the age of 33 from complications from an auto-immune disease. The care that Barnes and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

Each DAISY Award Honoree is recognized at a public ceremony on his or her unit and receives a certificate, a DAISY Award pin and a beautifully hand-carved stone sculpture. In addition, the unit celebrates their colleague’s achievement with Cinnabon cinnamon rolls which were a favorite of Patrick’s during his illness.

Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center

Founded in 1973, the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center is the only burn facility in suburban Philadelphia providing comprehensive treatment for burn patients and their families — from emergency and intensive care to rehabilitation, follow-up and outpatient services. Recognized as a national leader in burn care, the Crozer Burn Center has been verified by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons, is a center of excellence for both pediatric and adult burn patients and was the first in the region to provide this standard of care for patients of all ages.
