PALM COAST, Fla., June 4, 2018 Florida Hospital Flagler recognized registered nurse Crystal Haines with the DAISY award.

Haines is nurse on Florida Hospital Flagler's medical/telemetry unit. Haines knew at a young age she wanted to be a nurse. Haines was the primary caregiver for her grandmother who became a quadriplegic after an automobile accident. Caring for her grandmother led her to nursing school. A patients family member nominated Haines for the DAISY award. Crystal kept me informed, explained [my husbands] care plan and medications, and answered all my questions with kindness and compassion, the family member wrote in a nomination form for Haines. I am so grateful and appreciative that Crystal was there for us. She truly deserves this award. In recognition of this honor, Haines received a vase of daisies, an award pin, a tote bag, and a hand-carved stone sculpture of the Healers Touch by artists of the Shona Tribe in Zimbabwe.
