“Dani is an exceptional co-worker. She will basically do anything you ask of her. She will go from attending to a call light to ordering supplies, setting up a room for an incoming patient, transferring a patient, doing the coworkers schedule, to answering many calls to answer everyone’s questions.

“She is an amazing resource to this hospital. She never says ‘no’ to anyone! She has never backed down from a challenge and has taken on every endeavor that anyone has thrown at her. She always goes over and beyond for everyone and is an extraordinary co-worker through and through!”

“Dani is the best at anticipating needs and ensuring positive outcomes. No task is too small or large. Dani addresses each task with the same professional vigor that exemplifies her can-do personality.”

Dani was presented a framed certificate, a tulip plant and a tulip shaped pin to wear on her badge. All nominees were presented with a certificate acknowledging their nomination for providing excellent patient care.  Congratulations to Jamie and all of our Tulip nominees.
