Nazareth Hospital’s Julee Robin, RN, Wins DAISY Award

NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA, PA (April 30, 2015): Nazareth Hospital’s Professional Practice Council recognized the hospital’s DAISY Award recipient for the fourth quarter of 2014: Julee Robin, RN, 7th Floor Rehabilitation Nurse. Julee was presented with the award by Michael F. Beshel, MBA, MHA, MSN, RN, NE-BC, VP, Patient Care Services/Chief Nursing Officer and Joanne Blaker, MSN, RN, Director of Nursing, on Tuesday, April 28.

Julee was nominated by a patient’s family, who had this to say about their experience with her:

“Julee has such a nice way with my mom. She is enthusiastic and encouraging. My mom responds well to her. She is patient and compassionate. Julee speaks to mom with respect and sympathy. I find her caring and informative. She is very good to the family. She explains everything clearly. Julee is a great asset to her floor. We feel blessed to have her working/caring for our mom.”

The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick “Pat” Barnes.  The care Patrick received inspired the Barnes family to create the DAISY Awards to recognize nurses who make a profound difference in the lives of their patients and their families.

Patients, visitors, physicians, other nurses or team members can nominate a Nazareth nurse for the DAISY award. One recipient is selected each quarter.  Each honoree receives a beautiful and meaningful sculpture called “A Healer’s Touch,” hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa. The DAISY award winner’s unit coworkers celebrate with a treat of cinnamon rolls, in keeping with a tradition the Barnes family established.
