Elizabeth Hornsey, an emergency services nurse with Olympic Medical Center, was recently honored with a DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
The award, created by the DAISY Foundation, recognizes the “extraordinary, compassionate nursing care provided to patients and families every day,” OMC officials said.
Chief Nursing Officer Vickie Swanson and director of emergency services Aaron Possin presented Hornsey with the honor.
“Liz has been and exceptional RN in the emergency department since 2019,” Possin said. “She provides compassionate, patient-centered care and regularly goes out of her way to ensure each patient is safe and feels comfortable. She promotes best practice in the department and is a mentor to new nursing staff.”
Olympic Medical nurses may be nominated by patients, families and colleagues. Each honoree receives a certificate commending her or him as an “Extraordinary Nurse.”
Honorees also receive a DAISY Award pin and a hand-carved sculpture called “A Healer’s Touch.”
