Congratulations to Our July DAISY Nurse, Karen Hawbaker, RN

Karen Hawbaker, RN, was named Meritus Medical Center's July DAISY nurse after being nominated by family members of a recent patient.

According to her nomination form, "Karen addressed our every need with extreme patience and concern. She was very careful in her manner in every aspect of the care of my 88-year-old mother who has extreme hearing loss. Sensing how upset I was, she returned with a warm blanket to 'tuck me in.' She demonstrates the term 'angel of mercy' and my mother and I are grateful for her knowledge and care."

Other nurses nominated for the July DAISY award included Brian Bearese, Stacy Finkner, Morgan Heintzelman, Angela Hurry and Amber Smith.
