Olympic Medical Center nurse Karen Reeder recently received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses from OMC Chief Nursing Officer Ralph Parker.

The award, created by the DAISY Foundation, recognizes “the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care provided to patients and families every day,” Olympic Medical Center officials said.

Several patients submitted nominations praising the care Reeder provides to them during medication-assisted treatment (MAT) appointments, OMC officials said.

Olympic Medical nurses may be nominated by patients, families and colleagues. Each honoree receives a certificate commending her or him as an “Extraordinary Nurse.”

The certificate reads: “In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people.”

Honorees also receive a DAISY Award pin and a beautiful and meaningful, hand-carved sculpture called A Healer’s Touch.
