Nurses get DAISY awards for going above and beyond 

Each quarter, CoxHealth recognizes nominated nurses with DAISY Awards. The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses is presented in medical facilities throughout the United States to recognize the education, training, skill and compassionate care nurses provide. Patients, their friends and families, colleagues, physicians and volunteers may nominate a nurse for the award.
Below are the nominated and winners of the award:
ANDREW LESHIN, CCU/MICU

A fellow nurse nominated Leshin for the compassion he showed to a patient who was making the transition to comfort care at the end of life.
After the comfort care order was put into action, Leshin gathered a team of nurses and PCAs to fulfill the patient’s last wish of sitting outside on a porch one last time. They put him in a wheelchair, gathered multiple oxygen tanks and took the patient out to the patio at the West Pavilion with his family.
EMILY MATHESON, NEONATAL ICU

A nurse manager nominated Matheson for the care she provided for a premature newborn after a major trauma involving a pregnant patient. Due to the seriousness of the mother’s injuries, she was cared for in the Emergency Department and Neurotrauma while Matheson took care of the extremely premature infant in the NICU.
The manager wrote in the nomination: “During all the care, Emily played lullabies softly in the patient room. Emily held this baby girl until she passed as the mother was in NTICU and the father was too overwhelmed and could not do it emotionally. This little girl passed away in the loving arms of the nurse who cared for her until the end of her short life.”
JENEA VANMAN, 900 MEDICAL-SURGICAL

A colleague nominated Vanman for the care she provided for a patient who came to the floor after suffering a septic miscarriage.
“This young lady was scared and in pain. Jenea stayed with her, held her hand and kept her calm,” the nomination read. “She helped get her comfortable and talked her through the whole ordeal.”
