DAISY award to Emily Ray, BSN RN

DAISY award to Emily Ray, BSN RN

"We are proud to present our second DAISY Award to Emily Ray BSN RN. Emily was nominated by a patient for her dedication to compassionate hands on and personal care. She "made our birthing visit amazing. She was so professional and explained everything. And in my opinion went above and beyond. Very thankful for her!"

Emily Ray BSN RN has worked at Ashley County Medical Center since May  2020. She began as a nurse tech and a preceptor, moving on into a full time position after graduation. She is a team player and often helps in various departments with a joyful heart and giving attitude.Emily picks up extra shifts in departments that have been short staffed as well.

Her manager Laurie Kilcrease BSN RN says "Emily Ray is consistently bragged on by her peers for being helpful, hard working, and a team player. Patients usually point out her kindness and compassion. As her supervisor, I am very proud of Emily. She is always searching out new learning experiences and seeking knowledge and sharing. She has a kind heart and has always helped me and gone above and beyond for patients. I am so proud I have had the opportunity to mentor her as her preceptor while in school and now watch her grow into a wonderful nurse. "

As a DAISY Award Honoree she received a certificate proclaiming her "Extraordinary Nurse" status, A DAISY Award pin, and a unique, hand-carved serpentine stone sculpture from Zimbabwe, entitled "A Healer's Touch". She will also be on the spotlight page on the DAISY website, featuring a photo and telling the story of why she was honored.

We would love to issue our next Daisy Award to a deserving nurse! Please remind patients and visitors to nominate a nurse if they would like. Also we accept peer nominations!!
