A Community Memorial Health System nurse, Lisa Baker, is a recent recipient of the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, a peer-elected awards program the hospital participates in each quarter. Nurses are nominated for the DAISY awards by patients, family members and colleagues.
Lisa, a registered nurse in Community Memorial Hospital’s Critical Care Unit, is known at the hospital for her compassionate care, concern, and dedication to patient health.
Lisa was nominated by a colleague who wrote:
“Lisa is continually used as a resource by staff throughout the entire hospital for her wealth of knowledge, experience, amazing ability to critically think during tough situations, and her willingness to work as a team to assist in any role — whether it is assisting in giving a bed bath or to help stabilize a critical post-opt open heart patient in order to send the patient back to the OR. I cannot think of a more deserving recipient of the DAISY Award. Lisa is the type of nurse we should all strive to become. It is an honor to work with her.”
