More Than a Nurse

Tina Moore, a nurse in the medical-surgical department, has been named AdventHealth Gordon’s latest DAISY Award recipient. This award is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the super-human tasks nurses perform every day.

Tina received the following nomination from a patient: “All of my nurses were wonderful, but Tina Moore stood out a little above the rest. Each time she entered my room, she would ask how I was feeling or if I needed anything. I had a guest in my room and she asked for permission to hand over my chart as she and the day nurses were changing shifts. Tina valued my privacy. The night before she was my nurse, she filled in as a tech. When I asked her about it, she told me she was helping the techs and that their job was just as important as a nurse’s job. When Tina discharged me, my grandson wanted me to hold him as she removed the IV. Tina noticed and told me to go ahead hold him. She was not frustrated, and instead said, ‘hold that sweet little boy.’ That said a lot about her as a nurse.”
