Accountable Healthcare Staffing has partnered with the DAISY Foundation™ to recognize clinicians for the extraordinary skillful, compassionate care they provide patients and families. The DAISY Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. We are proud to present Bernadette Givens with the DAISY Award recognizing extraordinary nurses.
“Bernadette returned to Accountable to work with us just before the pandemic of 2020 and has worked in the ICU at UT Southwest in Dallas and the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, and several other facilities over the last 2 years. She spent two different seasons during that time with us at The University of Texas MD Anderson where on more than one occasion they sent us news of what a great RN she has been for them on their ICU units and that numerous patient’s families sent notes of how she made a difference in their lives. Bernadette has given her life to nursing and is a constant reminder, here at Accountable, that nurses make a big difference in our world.” Paul Aelmore, Senior Nurse Recruiter, Accountable Healthcare Staffing
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, Patrick’s family deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown not only to Patrick but to all of them as well. When he passed, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way.
