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.
The DAISY Award was established by The DAISY Foundation in memory of J.
Patrick Barnes. The Barnes family was awestruck by the clinical skills,
caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, and created
this international award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.
Huntington Hospital's April DAISY award winner was James Rodriguez,
RN. James was nominated by a patient’s family who wrote the following :
“Our daughter was admitted to Huntington Hospital when we met James. James
was very helpful and listened to our needs. He was on top of things and
made sure radiology and anesthesia knew of our daughter’s delicate
situation. James went out of his way to call and notify us of what was
going on with her care and always came in the room to ask about needs.
He came with us and stood with our daughter during her procedure, which
showed us again, how caring & concerned he was. She has been admitted
several times to Huntington Hospital and we have had good nurses, but
never came across a nurse that did so much for patient as James did for
our daughter. We are very thankful for the compassion and giving nature.”
