November DAISY Nurse Named

HAGERSTOWN – Toni Naude, RN, B.S.N., was recently selected as the November DAISY Nurse at Meritus Medical Center.

Toni was nominated by a coworker. Her nomination letter noted that one day, “Toni was standing in line in the Robin’s Cove (dining room) during her lunch break when a visitor experienced a medical emergency. Toni immediately intervened and began CPR until additional help arrived. Her actions directly changed the course of this person’s life, as Toni did not stop to see if someone else would help in the crisis, but instead, jumped right in and made a difference.”

Others nominated for the November award include: Linda Byrd, RN, B.S.N.; Taylor Guyer, RN, B.S.N.; Evelyn Kloos, RN, M.S.N.; Julia Lloyd, RN; and Danielle Startzman, RN, B.S.N.

Nominations for the DAISY Nurse award are accepted from patients, families and peers year-round at the hospital. Nominations forms are available throughout the campus.
