Vidant Beaufort Hospital announced emergency department nurse Stacey Woolard has been named a recipient of the DAISY Award.  The DAISY Award recognizes extraordinary nurses who demonstrate the attributes of an exceptional professional such as compassion, teamwork, persistent patient advocacy, community awareness along with timely, informative and therapeutic communication and consistent adherence to the highest clinical and ethical standards of the nursing profession.

Woolard has been a nurse since 1998 and has worked for Vidant Health for almost 22 of her 24 years in the field. She has served in a variety of clinical settings.  In addition to her 11 years as an emergency department nurse she has worked in internal medicine, home health and hospice, wound care and staff development.

Dennis Campbell II, vice president of Patient Care Services at Vidant Beaufort, presented Woolard the award.

“We are very proud to partner with DAISY as we have extraordinary nurses here at Vidant Beaufort Hospital,” said Campbell.

Woolard was nominated by her colleague, Rosemary Cooper, and her former manager, Leanne Fulcher.

“Stacey has strong skills as a nurse, she is compassionate with patients and goes above and beyond,” said Cooper.

Fulcher’s nomination describes Woolard as a highly versatile, experienced and caring nurse who is innovative to provide individualized care as well as respond to the most extreme emergency.

Vidant Health recognizes DAISY Award winners each quarter. Each nurse that is chosen for the award is recognized in a public ceremony and receives a hand-carved serpentine stone sculpture known as A Healer’s Touch, cinnamon rolls and a DAISY pin. They also sign a recognition banner that is publicly displayed in their unit for the quarter.
