DAISY Award 2018

Hannah Eastlick, LPN at Davis County Hospital Recognized for DAISY Award

Bloomfield, IA – Hannah Eastlick, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in the Medical Associates primary care clinic at Davis County Hospital (DCH), was one of the Mercy Health Network Hospital recipients of this year’s DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Hannah was presented the award at the annual DAISY Award Celebration held on June 15th at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.

The DAISY Award is in recognition of a young man, Patrick Barnes, who died at the age of 33 related to an auto-immune disorder that took his life in just eight weeks. His family was so impressed with the level of knowledge, expertise and compassion they experienced with the nursing staff that they wanted to establish a forum to provide ongoing recognition of the extraordinary work nurses do every day. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.

Davis County Hospital participates in the DAISY Award program each year, which gives patients, community members, and coworkers the opportunity to nominate a nurse who has gone above and beyond by showing compassion and skill. Six Davis County Hospital nurses were nominated this year, and through a voting process, DCH team members selected Hannah Eastlick, LPN as the recipient of this year’s DAISY Award.
