Kusandra Harris, a Med/Surg RN, has been awarded the DAISY Award.
Memorial Hospital and Manor has joined with The DAISY Foundation to honor extraordinary nurses who give competent, compassionate care throughout the year. Kusandra Harris is the first MHM employee to recieve this award.
An acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, The DAISY Foundation was formed in November, 1999, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The nursing care Patrick received when hospitalized profoundly touched his family.
