Allison Hamilton, RN, case manager in acute nursing, was named Greene County Medical Center’s tenth DAISY Award honoree at a ceremony on Wednesday, November 14. There were thirteen nurses recognized at the event, representing every area of the medical center.
Hamilton has been at the medical center since 2007. She began her career as a nurse’s aide, then LPN and RN. She has been the acute care case manager since 2016. Patient family member, Karen Pope, nominated Hamilton and wrote, “Allison was an awesome help to our family…Allison was there for us and everyone knows the amount of work and compassion she had for our family.” A second nomination from a former co-worker echoes these sentiments: “She treats every patient like they are her family. She is always a compassionate nurse that makes sure not only the patient is taken care of, but the family is also.”
Other nominees recognized at the November 14th event were Long Term Care nurses Stacey Biggart and Deb Schoon; surgical nurse Heather Shipley; acute nurses Andrea Allbee, Karen Carman, Cassie Fowler, Kelsey Savits, Gina Geisler, Terry Rottinghaus; clinics nurses Tammy Kiner and Deb Wolterman; and care management nurse Laura Walker. All nominations were filled with gratitude for the care these nurses provided in compassionate and professional ways.
