Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center recognized Amber Hamlin, BSN, RN, as its first-ever DAISY Nurse Leader. Hamlin, director of the Emergency Department at EMRMC, was one of many nurse leaders nominated for the DAISY Nurse Leader Award. She is a resident of Boyle County and has been caring for patients at EMRMC for 16 years.
Hamlin was nominated by several members of her staff, who described her as a great leader who never lets her team down, even staffing the night shift and then returning for day shift after only a few hours of sleep. One person noted that Hamlin was instrumental in turning around the Emergency Department team morale after staffing issues associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. One staff member also noted how Hamlin appreciates the balance of work and home life while also expecting staff to provide the best patient care they can.
Ephraim McDowell is proud to recognize nurses with the DAISY Award, a national program that honors the compassionate care and clinical excellence that nurses bring to their patients every day, as well as the DAISY Nurse Leader Award. Nomination forms for the DAISY Award are available at various locations throughout Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, Ephraim McDowell Fort Logan Hospital, Ephraim McDowell James B. Haggin Hospital and other Ephraim McDowell facilities.
