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 December DAISY Award winner, Arsho Salazar,
RN, DMC, was nominated by a colleague who wrote the following:
“Arsho taught me what it truly means to work as a team. I was stunned
when she offered to help split our work on a very busy day. No one had
ever offered to help before, I was extremely grateful as I was already
behind. We wrote up a checklist and split it up, we worked “together”
and due to that, I was able to finish on time. If it were not for Arsho
I would not have been able to get out on time. I paid it forward and this
caused a chain reaction and cultural change on our unit. It is now the
norm to work together. Not only is Arsho excellent and passionate, she
is also a great person to work with. She goes out of her way to make our
unit better, even if she has to do more work. We are very lucky to have
her as an example of a great teammate.”
