– Atlantic General Hospital awarded the DAISY Award for excellence in nursing to Mary Wilgus, RN at a recent presentation.
Wilgus has worked with Atlantic General Hospital for over nine years. She supports the hospital in caring for the community and its visitors as a staff and charge nurse, as well as patient care supervisor. Of her nomination, Wilgus says, “There is no greater compliment than the kind words of the people we care for.”
One nomination Wilgus received stated, “She tries her hardest to meet the needs of the patients and staff…making every patient feel safe and well informed. Mary is a blessing to everyone she comes in contact with!”
The DAISY Award, created by The DAISY Foundation in Memory of J. Patrick Barnes, honors the extraordinary work nurses do for patients and families each day. Hospital leadership brought the awards program to Atlantic General to recognize the compassion and high level of care its nurses provide to residents and visitors of the community.
Patients and visitors can nominate an Atlantic General Hospital and Health System nurse for the DAISY Award at any time. Nomination forms are available in every hospital department and health system physician office. Awards are bestowed quarterly.
From L to R: Kelly Fox, RN, BSN; Mary Wilgus, RN, 4th quarter FY 2016 DAISY recipient; and Cheryl Nottingham, vice president of finance at Atlantic General Hospital.
