DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., January 28, 2020 - AdventHealth Daytona Beach recognized registered nurses Julie Cupp and Rebekah Groover with the DAISY Award.
The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care provided by nurses.
Cupp works in the medical care unit and was nominated by a patient’s family member.
“From the moment she started taking care of my father, she showed a warmth that was felt by both of us,” the patient’s family member wrote. “She exuded professionalism in all that she did and always had a smile on her face. She even stopped by to see my dad on a day she was covering for another nurse. Julie is really an exceptional nurse.”
Groover works in the medical progressive care unit and was nominated by a patient.
“When I first found out that I was diagnosed with cancer, my nurse Rebekah came to my rescue. My family and I were all shocked, but Rebekah took the time to answer all of our questions and made sure that we understood everything that was going on,” the patient recalled. “She always had a wonderful and friendly attitude and worked hard to ensure that I was well taken care of. She is an extraordinary nurse who deserves the DAISY award and so much more! She went above and beyond in her care and treatment of me and I could not be more grateful, appreciative and happy to have met her and make a new friend!”
In recognition of this honor, both Cupp and Groover received an award pin, a bouquet of flowers, a tote bag, and a hand-carved stone sculpture of the Healers Touch by artists of the Shona Tribe in Zimbabwe. Both of their units also received cinnamon rolls and a DAISY banner to display.
