Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital Announces DAISY Award Recipient to Recognize Excellence in Nursing

Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital (MBSH) is proud to announce their second DAISY Award recipient, Penny Pitman, RN. Penny, a nurse in the New Hope Senior Behavioral Health Center at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital, provides treatment for people 50 and older who need structured psychiatric care.

The patient who nominated Pitman stated the following, “My nurse made me feel safe, important, and that I was a beautiful person. I felt at my lowest when I can in my nurse was my port in the storm. The nurse got my meds to me answered any questions. She took the time to sit and listen to me and did not rush me. being able to talk able to talk made me feel safe and gave me daily encouragement. She was always checking on me. This is a wonderful hospital thanks to your staff. She is what a nurse what being a nurse is all about. Her bright cheerful personality and smile made me feel welcome safe and happy here. She really does deserve a daisy or something. She is AMAZING!!! I will be spreading the word about how wonderful MBSH is."

The DAISY Award was established by The DAISY Foundation, which was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at the age of 33 in November 1999 of complications from Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), an autoimmune disease. DAISY is an acronym for ‘Diseases Attacking the Immune System.’ The Barnes family was awestruck by the clinical skills and compassionate care that the nurses provided for Patrick during the last weeks of his life, so they created this international award to recognize and thank nurses. The DAISY Award Program honors nurses wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve, and throughout their careers, from nursing students through their lifetime achievements.

MBSH is asking the community to help honor and celebrate the compassion and skill of the hospital’s extraordinary nurses by sharing their personal stories. If you or your loved one had a wonderful experience with an MBSH nurse, you’re encouraged to share your story and nominate this nurse by visiting: http://www.daisynomination.org/0014u00001nPtZNAA0.

Thank you to all the incredible nurses who continually care for their patients with extraordinary skill and compassion. We’re grateful for all you do!
