A Sparrow Clinton Hospital nurse’s compassionate care of a special patient helped earn her the hospital’s DAISY Award
for exceptional nursing skills. Melissa Ball joined the Sparrow Clinton Hospital nursing team in 2005 after working 10 years at Sparrow downtown in the respiratory stepdown unit. Ball gained praise from the family of a hospice patient who spent four days in her care before he died. The man’s daughters commended her empathetic, reassuring and compassionate disposition.

Also recognized were DAISY nurse nominees Beth Guillaume, Adriann Sanders, Melanie Kotowicz, Tasha Karek, Kelsey Thelen, Cindi Nakfor, Amber Piper and Sarah Veith. Each participant took home a DAISY pin and flowers.

This year, the Sparrow Clinton DAISY Committee also recognized exceptional achievement by a nursing team. Nominees included the SCH Surgical Services Department, SCH 2-South Cancer Center and SCH Emergency Services Department.

The first DAISY team award was presented to Emergency Services Department nurses for their hard work and dedication in achieving designation as the first Level 4 Trauma Hospital in Region One.
