Jami Coppock R.N., of Maternity at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, was recently recognized as DAISY® Award Recipient by Crozer-Keystone Health System.
Jami was nominated for The DAISY® Award by a patient at Crozer-Chester Medical Center for the compassion and comfort she provided during their visit. “Jami made a significant difference in my hospital stay. Her nursing care was gentle and genuine. Jami always made me feel like I was a family member while in her care,” the patient said. “I can't say enough wonderful things about Jami – she always went above and beyond for my newborn and I.”
The DAISY® Award is a program that recognizes excellence in nursing and was created by The DAISY® Foundation to highlight the clinical skills, extraordinary passion and care exemplified by nurses every day. Award recipients consistently demonstrate each of the following criteria: Dedicated, Autonomous, Innovative, Selfless and Extraordinary.
“Jami has a strong work ethic, willing to help coworkers whenever possible. She is self-motivated and dependable with a great attitude,” says Georgine Delozier R.N., Maternal Child Health at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. “Jami is excellent with her patients and always goes the extra mile. Her patients and coworkers love her. Jami is a true asset to our department and an outstanding role model.”
The DAISY® Foundation and The DAISY® Award
The not-for-profit DAISY® Foundation was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died in 1999 at the age of 33 from complications from an autoimmune disease. The care that Barnes and his family received from nurses throughout his illness inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.
Each DAISY® Award honoree is recognized at a public ceremony on his or her unit and receives a certificate, a DAISY® Award pin and a beautifully hand-carved stone sculpture. In addition, the unit celebrates their colleague’s achievement with Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, which were a favorite of Patrick’s during his illness.
