NEA Baptist Nurse Wins DAISY Award

Katherine Thrasher, RN in the 4 West Department at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital, earned a DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses for delivering compassionate care.

The patient’s family member said, “I could not ask for a more loving, compassionate and caring nurse for my Mom. I lost my Dad due to COVID, as he passed away while Mom was on the ventilator. It’s been a long road, and every time we have had to come back to NEA Baptist, we request Kat and will continue to do so.”

The family member noted that Katherine also went above and beyond for their Dad, who received care from her while he was in the hospital.

The nomination continued, “My Mother feels like a true patient and not just a ‘number.’ I hope every patient experiences Kat’s love at some point while staying at NEA Baptist.”
