June 2014 Winner: Marsha Burgess, RN

DAISY Award Winner

Patient's Family Member:
Marsha provided non-stop, professional caring service to our family. She spent two days with my family when Hospice care was brought in for my mother-in-law. We have never experienced such a compassionate nurse. She is a great asset to your organization and she deserves every award you have to offer."

ARMC Employee:
"Marsha is always a stellar nurse but one day in particular she noticed a patient waiting anxiously to be discharged. Marsha helped a fellow nurse with the discharge and then she offered to help pack up the patient and take her downstairs to meet her ride. Marsha is such an inspiration to me and many others. When I become a nurse, I hope to be like Marsha."
