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.
The DAISY Award was established by The DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. The Barnes family was awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, and created this international award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.
Huntington Hospital’s July DAISY Award winner was Sunshine Lor, RN. Sunshine was nominated by a patient who wrote the following:
“During my last stay, from the first time I met my nurse, I noticed she had a wonderful, pleasant, natural way about her. She had an effortless way to put me at ease; always explained what she was doing and answered all my questions. I could list all the great qualities that I think would apply, but this would not capture the pleased internal nature she had while taking care of me. She came in to say good-bye at the end of her shift and how she enjoyed taking care of me. I thought, “Wow, how kind!”. The next day she asked how I was doing, I informed her of my lack of sleep and then I noticed no one was coming in my room, but when they did it was a team. She had done her best to get me the sleep I needed. She made me feel like a million, it was a very special moment. She was truly compassionate and kind-hearted, gentle and caring. She did more for my stay than anything else.”
