Amy Akil, a nurse in the Mother Baby Unit at Baptist Women’s Hospital, earned a DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses for giving extra support to a patient. She was chosen as the winner among 33 nurses at the hospital nominated for their outstanding work.
The patient who nominated Amy mentioned her ability to show the utmost care and respect even during very delicate situations. “Right off the bat, Amy was extremely sweet and caring. She always entered my room with a warm smile.”
The patient also said that Amy was her main support as her family does not live close by. “Thank you for truly caring and for treating me like a person instead of a patient or number,” said the patient.
