Cooper University Health Care recently recognized Meghann Thornton, RN, of Medford Lakes with the DAISY Award for providing exceptional nursing care. Meghann works as a nurse in Cooper’s Progressive Care Unit.
The DAISY Award, established by The DAISY Foundation, is an international program that celebrates the extraordinary care given by nurses every day. It is presented in collaboration with the American Organization of Nurse Executives.
Each winner receives a DAISY Award recipient pin, a Healer’s Touch hand-carved statue, an award certificate, and a gift certificate to Cinnabon®. In addition, the selected nurse’s unit receives a banner to post for the quarter.
Anyone—patients, families, and professional colleagues—may nominate a Cooper nurse for The DAISY Award. The DAISY nomination materials are located on nursing units and other public locations throughout the Cooper Camden campus and outpatient offices, as well as online through the Cooper website.
