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.”
