Cody Allison March DAISY Award Winner

Allison is well known in the CMH Medical Surgical Department, where she has worked for the last 15 years, for her care and compassion with patients.

The nomination letter said that Allison’s “coworkers and patients rely on her for guidance and continuity of care” and that her leadership style is a bit “Mary Poppins…with a firm, but gentle hand.” The nomination letter shared that above all, Allison “has a heart of gold.”

Recently, Allison helped a patient who had custody of a granddaughter, while the patient was hospitalized. With very few resources available for safe care of the child while the patient was hospitalized, Allison worked with the Division of Family Services to find a temporary place for the granddaughter to stay until out-of-town family could arrive.

The nomination letter ended with the following: “Though this is only one example of the nurse’s compassion for her patients, I hope you can see the DAISY spirit and CMH PRIDE that she carries with her in all that she does.”

About the DAISY Award

DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP), an auto-immune disease. The Barnes Family was awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Barnes, so they created this international award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.

CMH implemented the DAISY Awards in January 2019 to recognize their own extraordinary nurses. Each month a CMH or Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation nurse will be presented with this recognition.
