DAISY Award® Presented to the Family of Valerie Firl
On November 1st, the DAISY award was presented to the family of Valerie Firl. Valerie was a float nurse at Hunterdon Medical Center and sadly passed away suddenly in August.
The daughter of a patient of Valerie’s wrote, “My mother was admitted to the hospital with two broken ankles and I spent four days by her bedside. It was a very stressful time for my family. Valerie was the light that guided us through this unfortunate time. Valerie listened to my mother’s concerns and helped to facilitate her discharge. She showed genuine compassion and professionalism throughout my mother’s stay. We have many nurses in our family, I understand the everyday exhaustion they have to deal with but Valerie never showed signs of stress and in fact, was always a shoulder to lean on. If I could nominate Valerie 100 times over for this award, I would. She truly went above and beyond in the care she provided my mother.”
Valerie cared deeply for anyone she came in contact with. We were truly blessed to have known her and have her part of our work family.
