LEXINGTON, Ky. — Saint Joseph Hospital recently named its Daisy Award winners for the fourth quarter of 2020. Amanda Wilson, RN, of Lancaster; and Lauren Setters, RN, of Mount Sterling, received the Daisy Award for their exceptional patient care.
The Daisy Award is a nationwide program that celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. Saint Joseph Hospital is proud to be a Daisy Award Partner, recognizing nurses with this special honor every quarter. This quarter, Amanda Wilson and Lauren Setters were nominated for the Daisy Award by their colleagues, as well as Saint Joseph Hospital patients and their families.
“Amanda went above and beyond to comfort and take care of my mother,” said the daughter of a Saint Joseph Hospital patient. “She was very thorough when it came to my mom. My mother went to hospice and Amanda knew this upset me, she took some of her precious and busy time to spend with me. Amanda is very compassionate and giving. If only this world had more people like Amanda in it, what a wonderful world it would be.”
“Lauren goes above and beyond every shift she works,” said one of Setters’ colleagues. “She is always jumping in to help and taking the initiative. I often see Lauren go to the store to pick up items for her patients. We had a homeless patient that had dirty clothes, and Lauren went to the store and bought laundry detergent for him and then washed his clothes. The stories of Lauren going above and beyond are endless. She is constantly putting herself in other people’s shoes and going out of her way. She is easy to work with, has a great attitude, and never complains. Lauren is a huge asset to Saint Joseph Hospital.”
The Daisy nurses receive recognition from the Leadership Team and are presented their gift bag, certification, special Daisy Award pin, and a hand-carved serpentine stone sculpture entitled “A Healers Touch.”
