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 October DAISY Award winner, Alma Escusa, RN, labor and delivery, was nominated by a patient who wrote the following:
“I was feeling anxious and nervous when admitted to Huntington Hospital. Alma was the RN for the evening. Straight away she was compassionate, thorough and capable. She suggested different things that would help me. She also held me during a procedure and constantly encouraged me to relax. She was almost like family that evening and less like an RN. I am extremely grateful for her presence and experience. She made me feel very comfortable and safe, considering that I was scared and out of my mind. She was extremely hands-on; she was everywhere simply doing everything for me to ensure I felt comfortable. Her compassion and exceptional care are deserving of the Daisy honor. Thank you, Alma.”
Congratulations, Alma, for your well-deserved DAISY Award! For more information about the DAISY Award, please visit: www.huntingtonhospital.org/daisyform.
