Monica Schriber Honored With Daisy Award

Posted on: August 18, 2017

Monica Schriber, RN, Emergency Department, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. “At this point in my nursing career, receiving the Daisy Award is very special to me,” said Monica. "It means a lot, but I couldn’t do it without my co-workers. They all helped. I work with a great team.” Monica was nominated for the Daisy Award by a grateful co-worker: “Monica provided excellent care of a patient presenting in the Emergency Department with injuries following an assault. The patient was paranoid, apprehensive, scared and had difficulties trusting staff. Monica provided care and comfort to the patient for over nine hours. Upon discharge, the patient had no ride home. Monica made numerous calls to family, friends and transportation agencies before finally talking with Social Services, who helped provide a taxi ride home. I want to commend Monica for her passion, support and willingness to do everything she could to provide this patient with the care and safety needed. This is an example of a true leader in our department and I’m very proud to have Monica as an advocate for our patients, families and staff.”
