PHOENIX, AZ - Nov. 20, 2018 - Phoenix resident and nurse at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Jenny Loving, RN, recently received the DAISY Award for consistently providing skilled and compassionate patient care.
She is frequently praised by colleagues for providing skilled nursing care to critically ill patients while also supporting anxious family members with kindness and empathy. Administering care with immense consideration and sensitivity, she recognizes every patient as a unique individual and caters her care to best service their needs, consistently going above and beyond for her patients. Loving takes interest in their lives and learns about each individual she serves, using the knowledge she gains to provide even more personalized, quality care. In addition to being a thoughtful and positive team-centered nurse, Loving’s expertise and integrity make her a worthy recipient of the DAISY Award.
The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses is part of The DAISY (D)iseases Attacking the Immune System Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses make every day.
The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation, based in Glen Ellen, Calif., was established by J. Mark Barnes and his family in memory of his son J. Patrick Barnes. J. Patrick died at the age of 33 in 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (IT)P, a little-known autoimmune disease. The nursing care Patrick and his family received while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and families.
“We are proud to be among the hospital systems participating in The DAISY Award program,” said Patty White, president and CEO of Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center. “Nurses are heroes every day. It’s important that our nurses know their work is highly valued, and The DAISY Foundation provides another way for us to do that.
