Hardeeville-based nurse receives compassion award from DAISY Foundation

October 4, 2012 

Coastal Carolina Medical Center in Hardeeville will honor one of its own nurses Thursday for going above and beyond for a homeless patient recently. The nurse will receive the award from the California-based DAISY Foundation for the compassion she showed for the homeless patient, washing his clothes and buying him a new backpack to replace his old, tattered satchel. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the superhuman efforts nurses perform every day, according to a news release.
