Alyssa Stoltzfus, registered nurse in Goshen Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, received the organization’s DAISY Award for the compassionate, expert care she provided a father in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

The nomination from the patient’s daughter Luann (last name not supplied), read: “Alyssa often has Dad on her caseload when he is in the ICU. She is fun, bubbly and upbeat. Her personality really lifts Dad’s spirits. This hospitalization specifically she advocated for Dad’s health and requested the ICU specialist take over his case for a few days. She encourages Dad to do as much on his own as possible. When he is not on her caseload, she pops in to see him…. She worked hard to get Dad off the blood pressure medication, but was also careful not to get him off too soon. Dad calls her ‘Sarge.’… She constantly goes above and beyond to make sure Dad is comfortable. She made sure the staff taking care of Dad when she wasn’t there knew his likes and dislikes. She is amazing!”

“I am very honored to receive this award and so thankful I have the privilege to care for our patients and their families,” said Stoltzfus.

The DAISY Award is part of an international program honoring the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY Foundation promotes and distributes the awards on behalf of the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who established the foundation after he died from complications of an auto-immune disease. They wanted to say thank you to the nurses who cared so lovingly for him during his hospitalization. To learn more, visit DAISYFoundation.org.
