Congratulations to Charity Smith, a nurse on our pulmonary unit, for receiving a DAISY award for her top-notch care. Charity’s nominator had a sick family member at Fort Sanders Regional. She not only took the best care of her patient but also helped the patient’s family member through a difficult time. Charity showed compassion and empathy as she interacted with the patient and the patient’s family. Her nominator said, “Charity instantly became more than a nurse to us. This type of relationship is what nursing is all about, and Charity’s compassion and personal touch will always be remembered.”
