LEAD-DEADWOOD, S.D. (May 9, 2023) – Jennifer Stewart, a Registered Nurse at Monument Health Lead-Deadwood Clinic, has received the prestigious DAISY Award. A national program, the award is presented to nurses who go above and beyond for their patients and community. She was nominated by a patient.
The patient wrote, “Recently I was not feeling well. Jennifer not only returned my call quickly, but she also conferred with my doctor to get what I needed. It was ‘lifesaving’ for me. Jennifer is always friendly, kind and professional. Jennifer always has a smile. She is comforting and reassuring with all conversations and interactions.”
The DAISY Award recognizes the outstanding professionalism and compassion that nurses bring to patients and families every day. It was established by the DAISY Foundation in California in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 of an autoimmune disease. DAISY is an acronym for “diseases attacking the immune system.” Nurses in Rapid City are selected 12 times a year for this recognition. Nurses are also honored in Custer, Lead-Deadwood, Spearfish and Sturgis. Visit monument.health/daisy to nominate.
