Heath Mullet named DAISY Award Winner

February 26, 2019

Hammond-Henry Hospital (HHH) has named Heath Mullet, R.N. as their next DAISY award winner. Mullet was chosen by a committee of hospital nursing staff and Foundation representatives from a group of 32 nominees. Mullet has been a nurse in the Emergency Department of Hammond-Henry for the past two years. He was nominated by a family with young children that had three recent trips to the HHH Emergency Department, where Heath was their nurse for all three visits. At each visit he was able to make the visit easy for the children and parents alike.  A celebration was held in Mullet’s honor and he was awarded a “Healing Touch” statue, DAISY pin, a bouquet of daisies, cinnamon rolls (requested as tradition by the family of the DAISY program) and recognition in the department for the next 6 months.    

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. Hammond-Henry Hospital’s DAISY award program is sponsored by the Hammond-Henry Hospital Foundation and will be chosen semi-annually. Nominate a nurse and learn more.
