Our Quarterly DAISY Award Winners and Nominees

Home » Nursing Superstars

Every quarter, PassportUSA’s DAISY award committee selects one of our working nurses to be recognized for their excellence in nursing practice. Our committee receives numerous nurse nominations from recognitions that are shared with PassportUSA’s International Employee Supervisors team. The committee then selects one nurse that has gone above and beyond his/her duties.

Other award winners and nominations featured here are from patients, managers, and facilities. We are proud of you all!

Our nursing clinical team coordinates with the hospital to fly in and present the portfolio award and hand-carved serpentine statue to the RN, along with his/her unit there to all celebrate and PassportUSA provides Cinnabons for the entire unit!!

The DAISY award is a prestigious award and every RN that receives it stands out for his/her positive initiatives in consistently helping patients, teammates, and for loving what he/she does!

DAISY Nomination – Maritoni

Maritoni received her second DAISY nomination from a patient! A great feat Maritoni! "This is my motivation to work harder and bring honor to PassportUSA. I am working for the goodness toward patients' wellness." -Maritoni
"Maritoni is very caring and attentive. She explained everything especially in removing my catheter and packing. She was so gentle and told me what to expect and explained it as we went along with the steps. She never had to call for medications. She was always prompt on bringing whatever needed to be brought and she would just drop by and check in occasionally."

DAISY Nomination – Paraluman

Paraluman was nominated by a patient for the DAISY award for her genuine compassion! Outstanding empathy Paraluman!
"I showed up with a lot of pain and she was always ahead of her time, always making sure my pain was managed and kept under control. When she saw me crying and upset about my personal and family life, she offered her support by allowing me to cry and vent all of my problems to her. I was very nervous talking to strangers about my emotions, but not with her. She showed compassion and gave great advice. I was feeling alone, scared, and having very bad thoughts that night until she spoke with me. She made me feel special and like I had a life worth living, and that I wasn't just a patient that she's getting paid to take care of. She gave me the emotional strength to want to try harder to live. I hope and pray every day that there are others out there like her. I do not feel that my life would have carried on much longer if I had not met her. I believe she really cares about her patients with her heart and not just because it's her job. And I thank her for making me feel like someone cares."
