Belfast —

Rachel Brewster, a registered nurse in the medical surgical unit, has won Waldo County General Hospital's Daisy Award.

Nominations for Rachel were received from two different patients.

One wrote, “She went above and beyond the whole time my husband was here. She has quite a bit of compassion for her patients. She put us at ease and we want her to be recognized for the amazing care she gave.”

The other wrote, “I believe Rachel possesses an extraordinary quality that makes her the best recipient of this award: the ability to make each patient and family feel like they are her only ones. I recognize this is not always easy to do.”

The Daisy Award recognizes extraordinary nurses who make an enormous difference in the lives of people by the work they do every day.

Other nominees for the quarter were Lindsey Faulkingham, RN, of the emergency department and Hannah Uhll, RN, of the medical surgical unit.

Moulton wins Sunshine Award

Ruth Moulton, CNA, is the latest Sunshine Award winner at Waldo County General Hospital. She was nominated by the daughter of a patient who has dementia and was quite confused and irritable during her hospital stay.

The daughter wrote, “Ruth took it all in stride and didn’t let it affect her caregiving. Her positive attitude and caring demeanor always worked to calm my mom. The compassionate attention she provided made a difficult experience better.”

The Sunshine Award was created to “celebrate the extraordinary skill and compassionate care provided by the nursing support staff.”

Also nominated for the award were Colleen Herlihy, Marcia Newbert and Courtney Reynolds.
