Grace Devlin is Daisy Award Winner

Posted on: February 10, 2016

Grace Devlin, a registered nurse on Three South, is the newest recipient of a Daisy Award. The award was presented during a ceremony February 5 in the Three South nurses station. Here’s her nomination from a grateful family member of a patient: “My father passed away on September 24, 2015, at Passavant Hospital after a lengthy stay. There are so many people I would like to nominate but there is one nurse in particular who stood out to my family and me. Gracie was such a blessing to us during those final crucial hours before Dad passed. We knew that Dad wouldn’t be with us much longer and Gracie helped us make informed decisions, and made sure we understood exactly what was happening. Even when Dad was non-responsive, Gracie treated him with the utmost dignity and respect. The compassion and kindness shown to him and my family is something that I will remember for a very long time. Thank you Gracie for helping us through a very difficult time.”
