As a designated Magnet hospital, Huntington Hospital 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 February DAISY Award winner Ching-Chun (Jessy) Lin, RN, was nominated by an employee who wrote the following:
Jessy’s passion for nursing shines through. One particular instance that stands out to me was when I had a gut feeling that my patient was going to crash. I knew something was wrong but was not sure what. Jessy took one look at the patient and the chart and immediately told me what orders needed to be obtained and the reason behind it. After the orders were received, Jessy stayed in the room for over an hour helping me stabilize the patient, administer meds, start a new IV and eventually transfer the patient to a higher level of care. I am forever grateful for Jessy’s presence that night and every other night.
It is evident that after all these years as a nurse, Jessy’s passion for nursing has not faded. She always has an upbeat attitude towards patients and staff members and brings life to our night shift. She treats every patient as if they are her family. Whenever a nurse needs help, she doesn’t ask what needs to be done; she jumps right in and starts helping. Nurses like Jessy embody what it means to be a passionate and caring nurse.
