KershawHealth celebrates National Nurses Week
Staff, administration recognize excellence in nursing
Nurses Week - Statue
Collier received a surprise of her own: the unveiling of an approximately 3-foot-tall statue of the Healing Touch sculpture given to all DAISY Award recipients. The sculpture, made by Zimbabwean tribal artists, will be displayed prominently at KershawHealth. Efforts are already underway to obtain a base for the statue. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
In addition to recognizing Palmetto Gold award-winning nurse Julie Watson in absentia (see accompanying story), KershawHealth took time out May 11 to celebrate National Nurses Week by handing out its latest DAISY Award winners during a ceremony in the hospital’s third floor Med 2 lobby. DAISY Awards are presented across the country in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died in 1999 of an auto-immune disease, as a way for his family to say “thank you” to the country’s extraordinary nurses. KershawHealth presented two DAISY Awards on May 11, one for a staff nurse and one for a nurse leader.
