January 2021 DAISY Award

DAISYKristopher Charles, RN – F9 – ENT/Orthopedic Surgical Specialties

Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Kristopher Charles, RN for being selected as the DAISY Award recipient for the month of January!

Kris works on F9 – ENT/Orthopedic Surgical Specialties and was nominated by a co-worker.  The nomination below reflects how Kris impacted their life in a very special way.

Kris had a progressive patient recently who had some respiratory issues after being transferred from the ICU.  He remained composed and in close contact with the MDs about the patient’s status.  When the patient began to deteriorate further, a rapid response was called and Kris continued to stay by the patient’s side and perform various nursing interventions to support the patient’s respiratory status until the rapid response team arrived.  I am nominating Kris for this award because he handled the situation with such grace and remained cool, calm and collected, even as the patient’s status declined.  Kris is such a wonderful nurse and it has been a joy working with him from the time he started as a CCA!  He is always willing to help you when you need it and appreciative when you return the favor!

Great job, Kristopher Charles!
