Tidelands Health nurses recognized for compassionate care with DAISY awards
Two Tidelands Health nurses were recently honored for the compassionate care they provide to patients.
Jeffrey Timmons, a nurse at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital, and Joyce Mack, a nurse at Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital, were honored with DAISY awards for their exceptional work.
The DAISY award recognizes nurses who provide extraordinary care, make a difference in the life of a patient and are role models for their profession. Timmons and Mack were honored during a breakfast for nominees and their clinical directors.
“At Tidelands Health, we are blessed with an incredible team of kind, caring nurses,” said Pam Maxwell, senior vice president and chief nursing officer for Tidelands Health. “The DAISY awards offer us an opportunity to thank and recognize our extraordinary nurses for their commitment and compassion.”
Mack, who has been a nurse at Tidelands Georgetown since 1989, was nominated for the assistance she provides to colleagues and for going above and beyond for patients.
For example, she brought in presents during the holidays for patients without families.
Timmons, too, has earned a reputation for his work with patients. Timmons was nominated for his patience and understanding even in difficult situations.
Tidelands Health names DAISY winners twice a year, in June and in December. Nurses are nominated by patients or their relatives, visitors or co-workers.
