The DAISY Nurse Leader Award annually recognizes the incredible work that nurse leaders do every day. At Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital nurse leaders include Nurse Directors, Nursing Supervisors, Nurse Educators and Program Managers in the Department of Nursing. Recently, during a Nursing Operations meeting, Nurse Educator Patricia Rabbett, MSN, RN, received BWFH’s 2018 DAISY Nurse Leader Award.
Rabbett was nominated by ICU Clinical Leader Ellen McCarthy, MSN, RN, CCRN, for going above and beyond on a daily basis to make sure BWFH’s nurses have the proper resources to care for their patients and that patients receive the best possible care.
In her nomination, McCarthy wrote:
Patti has proven over and over that she is a valuable resource to nurses in any department. Nurses call Patti for assistance with procedures that they are unfamiliar with and she comes to the unit with articles, procedure manuals or policies in hand ready to explain and support staff. She is willing to jump into any situation where she is needed. Patti comes in early and stays late to ensure that she touches every nurse with new information. With so many new nurses joining our care team, Patti makes sure to meet with them and keeps them on track with their orientation. Patti has been instrumental in assisting with the Mock Code work, making time in her busy days of covering multiple units to take part in increasing nurses confidence level in emergency situations. Advancing practice according to evidence-based practices is important to Patti as evidenced by fostering ideas for projects and assisting with abstract submissions so BWFH can proudly share their exemplary practices. In summary, Patti exemplifies an extraordinary nurse leader by mentoring staff in many areas of the hospital, being available, accessible and responsive to the needs of the staff nurses at any hour, enhancing the image of nursing, sharing her knowledge and passion of nursing every day. BWFH is fortunate to have such a skilled, compassionate, patient and kind nurse educator.
For Rabbett, being named the recipient of BWFH’s 2018 DAISY Nurse Leader Award was very meaningful. “Receiving this award in a room filled with my peers was an overwhelming experience. I am truly honored,” she said.
