HFM Cancer Center nurse honored with DAISY award.
Holy Family Memorial awarded registered nurse Angie Popp with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The Daisy award recognizes nurses who go above and beyond in providing excellent care to their patients every day.
Popp has spent the majority of her 20 year nursing career caring for cancer patients. She was nominated by colleague Kimberly DeBauche.
“Angela is the most hard working, whole hearted nurse that I have ever met,” wrote DeBauche. “She is the ‘Rock’ at the HFM Cancer Center and every patient who has concerns or needs a helping hand will eventually gravitate towards her.”
“I have never experienced such compassion towards patients as I have watched her give her undivided attention to ours. She is the nurse that always knows exactly what to say in each situation and provides comfort to her patients and staff whenever necessary,” added DeBauche.
HFM recognizes a DAISY Award recipient each quarter and has been doing so since 2011. Popp is the nineteenth HFM nurse to be recognized. Winners receive a Healer's Touch hand carved serpentine stone statue depicting a nurse and patient, a Daisy Award pin and certificate, as well as Cinnabon rolls—a favorite of Patrick Barnes, whose family was the creator of this award.
Patients, family members of patients, or colleagues can nominate nurses for The DAISY Award. If you or someone close to you received care from an extraordinary HFM nurse, complete a nomination form at hfmhealth.org/daisy.
