Cooper University Health Care recently recognized cardiac care unit nurse Alyson Karbach, RN, of Sicklerville, NJ, with the DAISY Award for providing exceptional care.
Karbach was nominated by the daughter of an elderly patient who described Karbach as “very caring, empathetic, and supportive while my father struggled with low blood pressure episodes which frightened him greatly. All of the Cooper nurses were excellent, but she was a calming presence and really stood out.”
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 month, Cooper honors a nurse with The DAISY Award.
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 main Cooper campus and outpatient offices, as well as online through the Cooper website.
