At Next Travel Nursing, our team of experienced recruiters is thrilled to work with nurses who greatly impact the lives of their patients in a positive manner. We have a special place in our hearts for RNs who go the extra mile, and believe such incredible work and dedication shouldn’t go unrecognized.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that one of our nurses has received The DAISY Award® For Extraordinary Nurses. Congratulations to Stephanie Wagner, RN, who has made her mark as a CVICU traveler in the lives of so many patients and co-workers!
Here’s what Next Nurse Recruiter Team Leader Josey Crues had to say to about Stephanie, who is currently on an extension assignment in Kentucky:
“[Stephanie] is truly a great nurse. She received the “Great Catch Award” at her assigned medical center, which recognizes team members who stepped in and caught an error. The error Stephanie identified was that one of the Heimlich valves was upside down, preventing a patient’s chest tube to drain air and fluid from the lungs. This could have been deadly for the patient, but Stephanie saved the day!”
Please join the entire Next Travel Nursing staff in thanking Stephanie for her life-saving work as a travel nurse! She truly exhibits the kind of compassion that The DAISY Award was intended to reflect.
Members of the Next team, including Josey, Account Manager Brian Plunkett, and Quality Improvement Nurse Annette Sander, visited Stephanie during her shift to congratulate her and present her with The DAISY Award.
The DAISY Award honors the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day. The award was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, a patient who passed away in late 1993 after being diagnosed with the auto-immune disease ITP. Patrick’s family brainstormed about what they could do in his memory, and vividly recalled the skillful and compassionate care he received from his nurses during his eight-week hospitalization. To say thank you to nurses everywhere, they established a recognition program known today as The DAISY Award® For Extraordinary Nurses.
