Congratulations DAISY Award Winner, Christa Kennedy
Congratulations to UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Nurse, Christa Kennedy, for winning the DAISY Award. The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses honors the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day. This was the nomination submitted for Christa:
“It is difficult to put into words why I think Christa is deserving of this award. I had many good nurses when I was a patient, but there is something special about Christa that sets her apart. From the second Christa walked into my room, it was like she shined sunshine everywhere. Her voice, alone, is calming and comforting. Christa is very positive and upbeat. I was having a difficult night the night I had Christa. Christa’s demeanor soothed and uplifted me. Christa was very good and thorough; she explained everything to me. At one time, I was crying and Christa gently caressed my hand. She has such a way with patients and her passion for nursing exudes from her.”
