For Immediate Release… AGH CELEBRATES EXTRAORDINARY NURSING WITH THE 3rd QUARTER
Berlin, Md. – Atlantic General Hospital awarded the DAISY Award for excellence in nursing to Patty Tull, RN at a recent presentation.
Tull currently works in Surgical Services and has worked at Atlantic General Hospital since 2006. Winning the Daisy award was unexpected. Deciding to go back to school and changing my life and career, I always hoped to change and add to someone's life. This award makes me feel like I am becoming the nurse I always dreamed of hopefully being one day. I hope to continue being just that nurse,” said Tull.
The DAISY Award, created by The DAISY Foundation in Memory of J. Patrick Barnes, honors the extraordinary work nurses do for patients and families each day. Hospital leadership brought the awards program to Atlantic General to recognize the compassion and high level of care its nurses provide to residents and visitors of the community.
Patients and visitors can nominate an Atlantic General Hospital and Health System nurse for the DAISY Award at any time. Nomination forms are available in every hospital department and health system physician office. Awards are bestowed quarterly.
