It Takes a Great (Care) Team

rbrs_0172Delivering great care doesn’t happen without great teamwork. That’s why health care is the ultimate team endeavor and at Jefferson we’re excited to celebrate the great teams of health professionals who spend every day working together on behalf of our patients and their families.

The DAISY Foundation and Jefferson Nursing have partnered to recognize nursing teams that have made extraordinary contributions to the care of a patient or patients with special needs with a DAISY Team Award.

Please help us identify these great teams here at Jefferson – and what they’ve done to earn acclaim – by nominating them for a DAISY Team Award.

Your nominations will help us find and recognize exceptional teams of nurses.

Last year, the staff of 7W/NW Gibbon – a mixed gynecology and oncology unit – earned the DAISY Team award for the care of a patient with autism in addition to complex medical problems.

You can submit you nominations via e-mail to Margaret Sell, MS, MPA, RN, in Nursing Research, Education and Quality. Please send Maggie your nominations by September 2, 2014.

About the DAISY Award

J. Patrick Barnes died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

Jefferson is proud to bring the tradition of honoring extraordinary nurses here. To nominate a Jefferson nurse for the DAISY Award click here or visit
