DAISY Award Goes Child & Adolescent Nurse Briana Cannon

DAISY Award Goes Child & Adolescent Nurse Briana Cannon

October 27, 2020

Congratulations to Briana Cannon, RN, recent winner of the nationally recognized DAISY award to honor nurses who demonstrate exceptional care and compassion!

Briana – pictured at right (center) alongside Unit Manager Donna Penny and Chief Nurse Executive Gretchen Johnson – is a nurse on our Child & Adolescent Unit. Says the patient who nominated her:

“Bri has always been super sweet. She works long hours and I have never seen her frown. Bri has changed my time here. She is truly amazing.”

The RN Excellence Council began participating in the DAISY Award program in 2014. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem and was started by Tena Barnes, whose husband Patrick passed away from Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura. She wanted an award that could be given to honor the extraordinary care and compassion that nurses give their patients. The DAISY Award is recognized and given in over 1,700 U.S. healthcare facilities across all 50 states and 11 other countries.
