Recently a young woman with a history of substance abuse was admitted to the intensive care unit at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota. Her family said at other facilities, they were often treated poorly because of her history but Bree Duckwall, RN and Christine Eckles, RN both cared for the young woman and her family with respect and kindness.  The woman’s mother said they were so thankful for the compassion they received from these nurses. Unfortunately, the young woman did not survive but both nurses continued to support to her family, even attending the young woman’s funeral during their off time. Duckwall and Eckles were just honored with the DAISY Award. This international award recognizes extraordinary nurses who provide exceptional care. Patients, families and colleagues may nominate nurses.  A committee at Doctors Hospital chooses the recipients.
