Brittany Kearns'11 Honored with DAISY Award

The international award program, created in 1999, was established to say “thank you” to nurses everywhere and recognize “the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day.” It rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. A family or patient who feels they received extraordinary nursing care nominates the nurse.
Brittany’s nominating patient said, “Brittany has been with me since day one after having a fourteen-hour surgery. I’ve also had additional surgeries every 2-3 days. She knew all of my daily medications and explained everything. In the beginning, I had at least eight IV bags! She made sure I was comfortable and always checked to see I did not have any pain or discomfort. She would get me extra heat packs and even this small squishy baby-sized pillow for my back to help with the pain. She was always there when I needed her. Brittany was the best nurse!”
Brittany is a graduate of IHA's Class of 2011 and Villanova University’s College of Nursing Class of 2015.
