Charlotte Brooks, RN, has been named Gordon Hospitals latest DAISY Award recipient. This award is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the super-human tasks nurses perform every day.
Brooks, who is a hyperbaric nurse in the Gordon Hospital Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine, received a nomination with the following statement from a patient: When I was referred for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, I was in pain, and I was worried that it would not help my condition. Charlotte immediately acknowledged my concerns and began confidently explaining the procedure in a calm and reassuring manner. Her kindness and attentiveness calmed my fears throughout my extensive therapy.
Charlotte is a nurse who embodies the mission of Gordon Hospital. Her words, attitude, and care for me was truly an extension of the healing ministry of Christ. She makes an intentional connection with her patients and strives to meet their needs, both physically and spiritually. Charlotte's actions are a conduit of peace, goodness, and grace. We are grateful for the services of Gordon Hospital and especially for Charlotte.

About the DAISY Foundation
The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, California, and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.)
The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.
