Sorgius wins nursing awardAugust 14, 2014
From local sources
JASPER — Memorial Hospital has named Teresa Sorgius the winner of its quarterly DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize efforts nurses perform every day.
Sorgius was honored for going “above and beyond standard nursing care,” her nominator wrote.
The California-based DAISY Foundation was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who was 33 years old when he died in 1999 from complications of idiopathic
thrombocytopenic purpura, a little-known but not uncommon autoimmune disease. The care Barnes and his family received from nurses inspired the award.
