BERMUDA RUN – Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Davie Medical Center named registered nurse Molly Daniels as the hospital’s latest Daisy Award winner on Jan. 26.

The award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. Davie Medical Center recognizes one of its nurses with this special honor twice a year. Each honoree receives a banner, certificate, award pin and a hand carved “A Healer’s Touch” stone sculpture.

“I became a nurse so that I could try my best to help make someone’s terrible day a little bit better,” Daniels said.  “I have had severe asthma my whole life and up until recently, I have been in and out of the emergency department with multiple hospital admissions and ICU stays. The inability to breathe is terrifying, that is why I know there is a huge difference in the impact that can be made from the care received. I have always valued my experiences and try to apply them to an empathetic approach to nursing.”   

“Molly is very deserving of the Daisy award recognition,” said Karen Hagen, Daniels’ manager. “She has been a valued member of the Davie Medical Center team for several years. She has approached every challenge with flexibility and always adapts to the constantly changing times. Not only has Molly grown to be a skilled provider, but she has also maintained the empathy necessary to serve in this role.”

The next Daisy Award winner will be announced in late spring.
