A Community Memorial Health System nurse, Vicki Graves, is a recent recipient of the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, a peer-elected awards program the hospital participates in each quarter. Nurses are nominated for the DAISY awards by patients, family members and colleagues.
Vicki, a registered nurse in Community Memorial Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, is known at the hospital for her compassionate care, concern, and dedication to patient health.
Vicki was nominated by a colleague who wrote:
“I would like to nominate Vicki Graves for the Daisy Award for many reasons, being an excellent charge nurse, her dedication to the unit, and always making herself available to others. I have had the pleasure of working with Vicki for almost 10 years now and there have been many situations where I have been grateful for her teamwork, professionalism, and most importantly her clinical skills. I would have to say the one that stands out would be about 8 years ago when I was still a fairly new nurse and had to experience my first “code” on one of my patients at the end of our shift, Vicki stayed over with me for almost 3 hours helping me with the paperwork and basically just debriefing with me on what has been one of the scariest things I have had to go through as a nurse so far. As our permanent charge nurse on nights, Vicki is not always the one at the bedside with our babies and their parents so she is not always given the proper recognition, but our unit would not run as smooth as it does without her.”
