Rader recognized with DAISY Award by St. Joseph Medical Center
Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center presented the November DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award to Angela Rader, a registered nurse on 2 North. The accolade recognizes nurses for their skillful, compassionate care and their daily support of patients and families.
Two of Rader’s coworkers nominated her for noticing a patient’s inability to launder his clothing and taking them home with her to do it for him. In addition to washing his clothes, she returned to the hospital with a bag of new clothing so he had clean clothes after discharge.
“Angie’s act of generosity and kindness was a true attestation that not only does she care about her patients with fine-tuned clinical expertise, but also with compassion and care,” they said. “Angie consistently sets a great example for her teammates and shows us all that being a good nurse is about much more than having a great set of nursing skills. Angie makes it clear that she is driven by the warmth of her heart, as she makes a difference in the lives of our patients.”
