Morgan Coleman, Meadows Regional Medical Center Labor and Delivery RN, received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses Tuesday, June 6.
Coleman was nominated for this prestigious award by Lauren O’Neal, who complimented her professionalism, kindness, and compassion during her hospital stay. “Morgan exhibited exemplary service to me during my stay, but she didn’t stop there,” O’Neal said. “She connected with my family, reaching out to them when they were concerned or things got a little stressful. She also stayed after her shift ended to help bring our bundle of joy into the world. Morgan’s caring and compassionate nature resulted in the best experience of my life.”
Meadows Interim Director of Labor and Delivery, Mandy Green, also commented, “I am so proud of Morgan. We are very lucky to have her as part of our team in Labor and Delivery.”
Meadows President and CEO, Alan Kent, also added, “Morgan is a wonderful deserving nurse, a great example to our peers, leaders and to the profession. I am so glad she is part of our team at Meadows.”
Morgan has been employed with Meadows for two years and currently resides in Hazlehurst.
The Daisy Award was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. The care Patrick and his family received during his hospital stay inspired this unique means of recognizing extraordinary nurses who make an enormous difference in the lives of patients.
