Extraordinary Employees Recognized at Greene County General Hospital
Victoria Coffey wins DAISY Award and Jill Bailey wins PETAL Award
Nurses at Greene County General Hospital are being honored with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. Employees outside of nursing staff are also being honored with the PETAL Award for exceptional service.
Victoria “Tori” Coffey, RN, who works in the hospital’s Labor and Delivery unit, was the DAISY Award Winner. Nurses recognized as DAISY nominees include CharLene Mowery, RN; Judi Dillon, RN; Lisa Daughery, RN; Jacob White, RN and Bailey Lannan, RN.
Jill Bailey, MSW, ACSW, LCSW, who works as Clinical Social Worker, was the PETAL award winner. The PETAL award, standing for Performing Exceptional Tasks and Affirming Lives, is awarded to an employee nominated by patients or hospital staff. Employees recognized as PETAL nominees include Raeann Feutz, Sara Russell, Shelly Bedwell, Tiffany Kessler and Trish Patton.
Coffey was nominated by a patient who was appreciative of her comfort and support during an emotional situation. The patient praised Coffey for helping to make their experience as positive as it could be.
The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, CA, and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barns. Three times each year, a nurse is selected by Greene County General Hospital’s nursing administration to receive the DAISY Award. At a presentation given in front of the nurse’s colleagues, physicians, patients, and visitors, the honoree will receive a certificate commending her or him for being an “Extraordinary Nurse.”
To coincide with the DAISY Award, the hospital created the PETAL Award to acknowledge non-nursing staff for providing exceptional service to the hospital, patients, visitors, or colleagues. The employee is also presented with a certificate at a presentation given in front of their colleagues.
DAISY and PETAL Award applications will be accepted year-round at the hospital. Both award nomination forms are also available here.
