WAUSAU — Ascension At Home honored Brittney Meyers, registered nurse, for being the “best of the best” during Ascension’s second quarter Daisy Award ceremony on June 28.
Meyers was nominated by a patient’s family.
“Brittney will always hold a very special place in our hearts and also in dad’s for the love and compassion that was shown to him — not only as a patient, but as a human being,” the family said in an Ascension news release. “She truly treated him like he was one of her own family members and would not accept any failures or issues, but only complete success. There is not enough thank yous in the world that would be enough for what your team did for my family!”
This is the third year Ascension At Home has participated in the Daisy Award program. Recipients are selected quarterly, based on their clinical expertise and demonstration of extraordinary compassionate care. The winners receive a certificate, a pin and a hand-carved sculpture created by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.
The award is part of the Daisy Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. To learn more, go to www.daisyfoundation.org.
