The patient family member that nominated Alison had this to say: “Ali is not just a great nurse, she is a phenomenal one. She combines the technical aspect of nursing with the personal/human aspect. Ali truly explains to the patient and family what she is doing and why. She is a nurse, an informer, a teacher and a cheerleader-all at the same time. The beauty and compassion of her care cannot be put into words. I also appreciate the kindness , respect and open communication with the family. Not only does that ease our anxiety here at the hospital, but she educates us so we can better care for our dad once he is out of the hospital.”

Alison’s manager also shared: “She’s extremely engaged, brings amazing ideas and is active in their implementation. I feel truly luck to have Ali as part of our ICU team”

Alison just started in the Rose ICU this August after completing the accelerated nursing program at Regis University. She recently attended the International Nursing Conference to present a research project she has completed about the effect of childhood sexual abuse on women during their childbearing years.

Congratulations to Alison and the ICU team!

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses was born to honor the skillful and compassionate care provided by nurses. DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, and nurses who receive the DAISY Award are honored in a number of ways. They receive a certificate, a DAISY Award pin and a beautiful hand-crafted sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch. The winner’s department is also recognized with a banner to display and Cinnabon® cinnamon rolls.
