Anu Lane, RN, Receives Daisy Award For Extraordinary Nurses

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

Anu Lane, BSN, RN, CMSRN, at CHI Memorial, received the Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
 
A patient’s family member nominated Ms. Lane for the extra steps she took to make the patient comfortable and calm during her stay in the hospital.  “Her infectious smile can light up a room.  She made my mom feel amazingly loved and cared for.  She is by far one of the greatest charge nurses I’ve ever met," the patient said.
 
Ms. Lane works in the clinical decision unit at CHI Memorial Hospital Chattanooga.  She has worked at CHI Memorial since March 2013.
 
"CHI Memorial is pleased to partner with the DAISY Foundation to recognize the extraordinary difference nurses make in the lives of patients and co-workers. Nurses are chosen each month to receive this wonderful award that honors compassionate care," officials said.

At a presentation attended by the nurse’s colleagues, physicians, patients, leaders and visitors, the honoree receives a certificate commending which reads, "In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people."

The honoree is also given a sculpture called A Healer’s Touch, hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa, a daisy bouquet and a copy of her/his nomination letter.

"The honoree's nursing unit receives a cinnamon doughnut party because it takes a team for a nurse to achieve his/her best. Tasty Doughnuts generously donates the treats for this worthy cause," officials said.

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (4)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
