daisy tableOn July 31, we kicked off The DAISY Award program at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. The program recognizes our nurses’ healing hands and commitment to caring that inspires us to make healthcare work better for our patients.

This nationally-recognized award is given within healthcare organizations for extraordinary nurses who make a profound difference. It’s a meaningful recognition that supports our goals of increasing nurse engagement, creating a supportive work environment, and elevating the patient and family experience.

The DAISY Awards will be given out quarterly, based on criteria rooted in the Nursing Professional Practice Model and our Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center values. This comprehensive program replaces our annual Nurse Excellence, Rising Star, Excellence in Transformational Leadership, Excellence in Clinical/Quality Research, Excellence in Commitment to Direct Patient Care awards. Keep an eye out for DAISY nomination boxes and signage throughout the organization
