Emergency room nurse receives recognition.
Angel Medical Center Emergency Room nurse, Mandy Tabor Wishon is the latest recipient of the DAISY award. Twice each year an AMC nurse is nominated by patients, family members, physicians or co-workers.
The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the family members of Patrick Barnes who was 33 when he died of an immune system disorder. The family chose to turn their grief into a positive creating the DAISY Award as a way to recognize nurses who they believe are the “unsung heroes of our society who deserve far more recognition and honor than they receive.”
