Delivering clinical nursing expertise enveloped with compassion should be the expectation for care. Ensuring this level of excellence happens when a critically ill patient is transferred from one hospital to another is challenging yet imperative to the patient’s and family’s experience. The DAISY Foundation recognizes nurses who provide compassionate and extraordinary nursing care, as demonstrated in the stories of 2 nurses, from different organizations, who cared for the same patient and family and were honored with The DAISY Award.
