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 July DAISY Award winner, Ruby Rose Fajardo, RN, was nominated by a patient who wrote the following:
“I have been blessed with having some of the greatest nurses, PCAs and PFCs that Huntington Hospital has to offer. I bought some of the staff boxes of chocolate to show my appreciation. If you have not had the chance to see Ruby Rose, I promise you, she is worth the biggest box of chocolate offered! Ruby Rose is my favorite, and here is why: She is vivacious. When I felt so ill, she inspired me and radiated so much life. She was able to magically transfer and share her peaceful essence and calming spirit with me so that I felt more hopeful and peaceful within myself. Whenever I see her sweet, cheerful face, I am immediately lifted and elevated. What makes her special is that she used her own life experience to convince me that I will get through this. She helped me believe that there is hope in my case and healing is possible. Ruby Rose is a superior nurse who exemplifies all the magnificent qualities of a healer.”
Congratulations, Ruby Rose, for your well-deserved DAISY Award! For more information about the DAISY Award, please visit www.huntingtonhospital.com/daisyform.
