Memorial Healthcare is pleased to announce Ashley Hutchinson, Registered Nurse, from the Home Health department as our December 2022 recipient of the DAISY Award. Ashley was recognized with the DAISY Award for going above and beyond to deliver safe and compassionate care to her patients. 

  “The DAISY Award is one of the most prestigious awards a nurse can receive. It is an honor to present this award to Sherry, her nomination story was touching. I look forward to honoring many of the amazing nurses at Memorial Healthcare for years to come with the Daisy award.” said Tyler Yaklin, MBA, BNS, RN, Chief Nursing Officer and Associate Vice President of Patient Care Services.

  Ashley received this award based on the following nomination story, “My nurse Ashley was patient, helpful and always explained everything. She has an awesome personality and bedside manner. Ashley listened to all my boring stories and responded with enthusiasm and interest. When I first came home from the hospital, I was not sent home with any replacement tanks and alarms were going off. Even though it was 12:01 a.m.,  Ashley called me and explained it all to me. My nurse was very dedicated and professional, I just cannot say enough about my care. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate Ashley a 12.”

  The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary, compassionate and skillful care given by nurses every day. Nurses are nominated by their patients and patient’s families. DAISY Award nominations are accepted all year long and can be made at or in person at the hospital’s main campus. 

  Ashley was presented with a certificate of recognition, a DAISY pin and an incredible serpentine stone sculpture carved by the artists of the Shona Tribe located in Zimbabwe, Africa. This sculpture is known as the “Healer’s Touch” and it portrays the embracing relationship nurses have with their patients. 

  “I am so incredibly honored to receive the Daisy award,” said Ashley. It was very unexpected and I am so happy to know that I have made a difference!  I am so thankful for my patients and my co-workers for all the support.  I feel very blessed!”
