– Atlantic General Hospital awarded the DAISY Award for excellence in nursing
to Patty Tull, RN at a recent presentation.
Tull currently works in Surgical Services and has worked at Atlantic General
Hospital since 2006. Winning the Daisy award was unexpected. Deciding
to go back to school and changing my life and career, I always hoped to
change and add to someone's life. This award makes me feel like I
am becoming the nurse I always dreamed of hopefully being one day. I hope
to continue being just that nurse,” said Tull.
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.
