Alisha Miller, RN, Orthopedic & Neuroscience Center Alisha Miller, RN

Alisha goes out of her way to make sure the physician, and our staff, have everything that could possibly be needed for a case.  Patient care and safety are her top concern.  She is always willing to stay late if a case needs to be added to the schedule.  Alisha is willing to do whatever is needed to ensure patients and families understand discharge instructions, and have all their questions answered before they leave the office.  She truly is a nurse who goes above and beyond to give great patient care and is a wonderful team player.

Jennifer Mossolle, RNJennifer Mossolle, RN

Jennifer was a great support for the family who suffered the traumatic loss of their first child. The mother left the following note:    
 
"While we were in the hospital, photographs of our baby were taken and printed for us to take home. We were so thankful to have the pictures taken because at the time we weren't thinking of things like that. With our permission, Jennifer asked if she could put the photos on a disc for us to keep."
 
 "A couple weeks later, we received a package in the mail. It was the CD that Jennifer had made for us but she even took the time to professionally edit the photographs and made a slide show for us too. I never knew how important those photographs would be to us.  It is one of the few things we have of our son and now we will have them forever. She gave us the gift of securing our memories. We are so thankful to have met Jennifer and for her wonderful gift."

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.

Colon cancer screens can prevent colon cancer by finding and removing growths before they turn into cancer. Screens also find colon cancer early, while it’s easiest to treat.
