Matthew Enlow, RN, was recognized as Broward Health Coral Springs’ December Diseases Attacking the Immune System (DAISY) Award recipient for going above and beyond his responsibilities while caring for a 93-year-old patient. Enlow demonstrated heartfelt empathy as he afforded the elderly woman the additional time and consideration she required, all the while providing parallel quality care to his other patients. This personal attention touched the hearts of his patient’s family and provided them comfort during her final days.
The DAISY Foundation was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died from complications of an autoimmune disease at age 33. Because Barnes received exceptional care while battling his disease, his family established the award as a way to recognize the profound impact nurses have on the lives of patients and their families. More than 2,700 healthcare facilities in all 50 states and 70 other countries honor nurses with the DAISY award.
