John Christiansen, patient care associate, has earned the latest Daffodil Award at Mercy Hospital South for the outstanding, compassionate care he provides in support of the nursing team.

A co-worker nominated Christiansen by writing: “John always has a positive attitude and goes above and beyond for his patients and co-workers. An example of his pure heart and respect and dignity for patients is when a patient recently passed away. John cleaned the patient up and placed clean linens and a flower in the patient’s hands. This gave the family a peaceful viewing of their loved one. This is something that cannot be taught and shows his amazing character.”
