HHI nurse receives award

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) - One outstanding nurse from the Hilton Head Island Hospital was recognized Tuesday for going above and beyond her patients' medical needs.

Peggy Law is the hospital's fourth nurse to receive the national DAISY Award, which stands for Diseases Attacking the Auto Immune System.

"I was in shock," said Law. "I'm very pleased, but it's nerving."

Nurses are nominated by patients and their family members.

The DAISY Award was established in 1999, and more than 1,600 nurses have received the award.
