Holmes recognized with DAISY Award

Gracie Holmes

Gracie Holmes, RN, 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.

Holmes, who is a nurse in AdventHealth Gordon’s medical-surgical unit, received the following nomination from a patient: “Gracie was my nurse one night during my stay at the hospital. I was having a bad night due to pain in my leg and my bipolar disorder. The doctor did everything he could to make me comfortable, but Gracie saw how much I was struggling due to my bipolar disorder. She stepped up and went above and beyond to calm me and assure me that everything was going to be okay. I feel that without her actions, I would not have made it through the night with my condition. She is a very special employee and is someone I will never forget.”

If you or a loved one have been a patient at AdventHealth Gordon and would like to nominate an extraordinary nurse for the DAISY Award, please call 706-602-7800 x2258 .
