TeErrica Wiley, RN from 3NE, is the DAISY Award winner for the month of July!
Her nomination comes from a patient, it reads, “On July fourth in the middle of the night TeErrica was moving beds and chairs to make sure my family was comfortable. I was in pain and about to have emergency surgery but she still made me feel calm. She talked me through everything and made me feel like I mattered. She is truly a beautiful woman inside and out.”

Taylor Thompson, RN, from the Emergency Department is the DAISY Award winner for the month of April!
Taylor was nominated by one of her patient’s family members, who is also one of her superiors, said, “When we entered the ER for my son’s injured wrist, Taylor started an IV, attached all monitors, and found the physician to see him, all within minutes. She also noticed a second fracture in the opposite wrist, and explained everything and ensured he was comfortable and calm. She went out of her way to address all of our concerns and questions. She showed compassion and empathy, the best I have ever seen. While I have seen Taylor consistently providing excellent care, I was unaware of just how invested she is in providing the best care possible to all patients.”
