Crozer-Keystone Health System recently recognized Christina Conway, R.N. of Springfield, a nurse on the Shock Trauma Unit at Crozer-Chester Medical 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.  Conway was nominated by a family member of a patient for this award.

Conway and members of the Trauma team provided significant care for this particular patient a few months ago prior to his discharge for continued rehabilitation. In the words of the family member, “Christina was one of the many nurses who cared for my brother after his accident. She was always optimistic about his recovery and gave him exceptional care during his stay. The ICU and Trauma Units have a very special group of people and we can’t thank them enough for all they did.”

Eileen Young, M.S.N., R.N., chief nursing officer for Crozer-Keystone, commented, “It truly takes a village to provide the level of care many of our patients require, and Christina Conway is a wonderful example of an extraordinary nurse within our trauma team at Crozer.”

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.
