As a designated Magnet hospital, Huntington is a recognized leader in nursing excellence. Every day, our nurses go above and beyond for our patients, and we are proud to recognize them for their efforts. Huntington Hospital’s recent DAISY Award winner, Kimberly Zamarripa, RN, was nominated by a patient who wrote the following:
“My mom was admitted to the hospital the day after Thanksgiving. She became critical and transferred from units. When she was moved to her unit a couple of days later, my mom was gifted with this nurse. She is a true angel! Kimberly took so much time to listen to my mom and my concerns about her various medical conditions and had such a calm and comforting presence. We appreciated her gentleness when she cleaned and dressed my mom’s pressure sores, and how she always went through each medication and what they were used for before administering them. Her commitment to her profession is so evident in how she cares for her patients. Kimberly was prompt in answering the call light, no matter how big or small the reason behind the request; she always came with the same serene and pleasant manner. We hope she gets the accolades she so greatly deserves for the exceptional care she gives to her patients. She set the bar very high for every other nurse who follows behind her. I can only hope the rest will take note of her extraordinary skill set and strive to deliver anywhere near her special care!”
