Aspirus Riverview Birthplace Nurse Wins DAISY Award

Congratulations to Shaylee Houben, winner of Aspirus Riverview Hospital's quarterly DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Shaylee is a registered nurse with Aspirus Riverview Family Birthplace and was nominated by a grateful patient, who wrote:

I want to nominate Shaylee from the Family Birthplace at Riverview for the DAISY Award. I came in at 27 weeks, bleeding and scared. I spent the night, and multiple nights after that. She talked me through everything and was very patient with me in the scariest few days of my life. I also happened to spend my birthday in the hospital. She brought me a card that everyone in the department at that time had signed and brought me flowers. The fact that she wanted to make an experience like that the best possible for me brought me to tears. It is very clear that she loves what she does and will go the extra lengths to make sure someone feels comfortable. She absolutely is deserving of this award.

The DAISY Award recognizes the outstanding and extraordinary care nurses provide every day. Our DAISY Award winners and nominees exceed the needs and expectations of patients and families by displaying the Aspirus core values of: Compassion, Accountability, Collaboration, Foresight and Joy.
