DAISY Award Recipients
The DAISY Award honors and celebrates the skillful and compassionate care nurses provide every day.
Reading Hospital's first DAISY Award was presented to Travis Chapa, a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Department. From the nomination form:
“When I met Travis I was going through a very hard time to say the least and he was the sweetest nurse ever , let just say the word to describe Travis is 'Angel' to see tears in his eyes my family was around and he was comforting them and talking to them, as I am writing this I am getting teary that's the effect he left on me. He is so wonderful. He definitely loves what he does and there's no doubt in my mind that I am not the only patient that was ever left with this kind of impression of him. I want to say thank you so much and keep it up and God bless you.”
