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.
Huntington Hospital’s April DAISY Award winner, Rachel Klitzner, RN, was nominated by a patient who wrote the following: “Rachel was an extraordinary nurse. She embodies everything a nurse should be. She was extremely caring, empathetic, compassionate and supportive. Not only was she attentive to my needs, she offered me the same kind of attention and care any mom needs. She didn’t make me feel like I should know what I should be doing and offered reassurance when I was on the right path. Rachel was sensitive and displayed excellent bedside manner skills when addressing sensitive information. She conveyed a lot of understanding and empathy when listening to my response. My previous experience as a new mom had not been positive. Rachel reminded me that there are still great nurses out on the floor that share my same philosophy and vision of nursing. I commend Rachel for her nursing skill and dedication to service. I hope Huntington Hospital is able to see how lucky you are to have her. I hope you will take care of her and appreciate her work. She is in fact a rarity that is worthy of being recognized and valued. Nurses like her bring prestige.”
Congratulations, Rachel! Thank you for your personal, supportive and compassionate care to our patients.
