February 2015 Daisy Award Winner

February 27, 2015

Congratulations Cheryl Palmer for being recognized as the February 2015 DAISY Award Recipient!

4 month old Braylen’s Mom wrote this about you:   

“The professionalism and compassion that she showed all of our family was a huge blessing.  The care she shared with us in teaching us how to take care of a premature infant was and is so much appreciated.  She truly is an amazing nurse.” 

A co-worker shared this about you in her nomination:

“The mother of one of our infant patients shared that she was unable to get her 3 older children school supplies.  Cheryl purchased a bag full of school supplies and left a card addressed to “Emma’s brothers and sister” in the patient’s room.  Cheryl is always a kind and loving person – both to families and co-workers.”

Thank you Cheryl “We are Proud You Are a WakeMed Nurse”!
