Madison Bramlett, RN, Honored with DAISY Award

A nurse at Parkwest Medical Center was honored recently with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. The DAISY Award was established in 1999 by the family of a patient who had received extraordinary care and compassion from his nurses during his final days.

Congratulations to Madison, a nurse on 2 Dogwood, for being recognized with the DAISY award. Madison was nominated by a patient’s husband, and you can read her full nomination below:

“Madison advocated for my wife during a medical situation that was life-threatening and offered unsurpassed attention and care to my wife over the days that followed.

After my wife’s emergency surgery and during the post-surgical period, Madison, sacrificing her professional relationship with the attending physician, advocated for my wife to receive additional testing to evaluate my wife’s condition before the surgery. She went on further advocating for my wife to receive medication and care that would offer greater comfort for my wife’s post-surgical condition. Furthermore, no matter Madison’s patient load and other ongoing responsibilities, Madison continued to check on my wife’s condition even during her normal off day when Madison volunteered to pick up an extra shift to help regularly scheduled staff.

Unfortunately, my wife has had a long history of ongoing medical conditions (spanning nearly 20 years), and over that time we have interfaced with a multitude of medical professionals at a significant number of care centers. Madison truly stands out as one of the very best nurses we have ever encountered. She’s a true angel.”
