Congratulations to Kortney Manning, Our September DAISY Award Winner
Congratulations Kortney Manning, our September 2017 DAISY Award recipient! Kortney lives in Peoria with her husband Ronnie and daughter Brylee. Kortney is a 2014 Methodist College graduate and has been with UnityPoint Health ever since. She recently became a nurse preceptor and helps mentor new nurses.
Kortney’s Nomination Story:
“Earlier this year I had a motorcycle accident. After surgery I went to 6 Crescent, where all of the nurses and staff were great – very nice and efficient. One particular nurse went above and beyond her expected duties. I work in grounds maintenance at ICC and love being outside. It was so hard to lay in that bed and only view the sunshine out the window. 9 days later I was able to be in a wheelchair. Kortney offered to take me outside for a ride. It seems like such a small thing, but at that moment it was exactly what I needed to get my mind headed in the right direction – healing! Thank you, Kortney!”
The Daisy Award is presented monthly to a nurse, nominated by patients or family members, for providing extraordinary care. The winner is chosen by peers, a group of staff nurses, who read all through the nominations received throughout the month. Nominate a nurse today!
