Sarah Lipinski, RN Wins DAISY Award!

Congratulations to Sarah Lapinski, RN who has received the DAISY Award! Sarah started working at Magee on November 11, 2011. In their nominations for Sarah, patients, families, and fellow colleagues reflected on how she always put patients first, helps her team members whenever needed, and is positively receptive to all in any situation.

Sarah’s patients reflected on her education skills and how it impacted their abilities to care for themselves. Sarah is one of those leaders who consistently demonstrates compassion in everything she does and sets the example for others to follow. She is admired and respected as a leader by her colleagues and team members. One of the most important personal qualities people look for and admire in a nurse leader is personal credibility. Sarah earns that credibility on a daily basis by voicing and practicing shared values. Her consistency of words and deeds influence shared aspirations for the entire nursing team on 3rd floor.

The DAISY Foundation was formed in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications from an auto-immune disease. When deciding how to honor Patrick’s memory, his family thought the one positive thing they could hold onto from the experience of his hospitalization was the amazingly skillful and compassionate care he received from his nurses. They felt compelled to express their profound gratitude to nurses for the work they do for patients and their families every day, and that’s how the DAISY Award was born. Today, the DAISY Award is presented to nurses at more than 2,000 healthcare facilities in 15 countries worldwide.
