DAISY Winner: Hannon Cannon

DAISY Winner: Hannon Cannon

Congratulations to Hannah Cannon, RN, Emergency Department, DCH Regional Medical Center, for being named the latest recipient of The DAISY Award.

Nursing Team Leader Mary Gates nominated Cannon. Here is what she wrote:

“Hannah was the intake nurse who received the story of a patient who came in via triage. Hannah was very concerned about the patient’s story and [facilitated the patient being] placed in a room. Upon placing the patient in a room, Hannah [assessed] the patient herself.

“Hannah [quickly requested the doctor and coordinated with the charge nurse and the doctor]. [Then] the patient went to the Operating Room.

“Hannah’s quick actions and persistence truly impacted this patient’s care. I am so glad to work with nurses like Hannah.”
