Two nurses receive prestigious DAISY Award at Memorial Health

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Two nurses were honored Monday at Memorial Health University Medical Center for providing high-level care to patients.

Erica McBride was one of the two nurses to receive the prestigious DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The DAISY Foundation is a non-profit organization that recognizes the heroic efforts nurses make every day.

"It helps me to appreciate what I do even more. My patients are not a paycheck. They are family, so it is very rewarding to know somebody found it in their heart to think I was appreciated enough for what I do,” said McBride, RN-BSN, Memorial Health.

"Many patients and families will never forget their nurse, will never forget the care they received from their nurse, and I think the work that they do is so important and it's equally important for them to be recognized for it,” said Tena Carraher, vice president of the DAISY Foundation.

The nurses were nominated by patients.
