Memorial nurse honored with Daisy Award

Posted: Updated:

A nurse at Memorial Health got some well deserved recognition on Wednesday for her hard work.

She received the Daisy Award, which is presented by the American Organization of Nurse Executives for heroic efforts nurses make every day.

"I'm honored, but I did not do this all by myself," said Daisy Award recipient Karen Morgan. "Like I said, this is a team effort, it's collaborative, from management to the physicians, all provide wonderful care for the patient, to the co-workers that assisted me in the care of my patients."

The Daisy Foundation was established by the family of a young man who died in 1999 in California from an autoimmune diease.

The award was inspired by the care he received from his nurses.
