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 September DAISY Award winner, Remy Kawata, RN, was nominated by a patient who wrote the following:
I am writing this letter for Remy. I had a close call being admitted to Huntington Hospital requiring immediate attention. It is hard to describe the consideration and care I received from Remy when she knew what I had been through; she assured me that she would do everything possible to get me well again. She took care of me, scheduled things, got approval for other items and always checked to make sure I was progressing. She also kept my wife informed and assured her that I would receive the best care. I know people think she was just doing her job, but it meant a lot more than that to my wife and me. She cared and helped me through a difficult time; I told her she was my “little angel.” When it came to discharge, she made sure I had all my medications, which required pre-authorization. She made sure everything went smoothly. My wife and I want to recognize Remy for the care we received.
