Charlotte Weyant, Clinical Decision Unit
The words from a patient's experience with Charlotte:
"Once being moved into another room, the new nurse told me Charlotte had called to tell her about me and had a heating pad ready for me to try to help with some of my muscle pain. I have never felt so taken care of before this visit. Charlotte is truly an amazing nurse and is a nurse that I would want taking care of my children and loved ones. I felt important and safe."
One of Angel's coworkers thoughts:
Angel comes in ready to work with a smile on her face. She consistently treats the patients with respect, kindness and goes the extra mile for those needing extra care. She is helpful and patient. I have been with HFAH for 15 years, but am new in this area.
She provided a good overview of what our day would look like and assisted me in learning new processes. I believe she deserves recognition for all her many hours of dedicated service.

About the DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 from complications of an auto-immune disease. During his eight-week hospital stay, Patrick’s family was impressed by the care and compassion his nurses provided, not only to him, but to everyone in the family. They created the DAISY Award in Patrick’s memory to recognize those nurses who make a big difference in the lives of so many people.
