Bayhealth nurse, Maria Stir, RN, is the recipient of the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
Stir joined Bayhealth in 2009 as an LPN and has since earned her RN. She is currently enrolled in a master's degree program at Wilmington University. The DAISY Award was created by the family of Pat Barnes to honor the nurses who cared for him and his family during the last weeks of his life. The award is given by health systems nationwide to recognize the compassion and kindness that nurses offer patients every day.
Each DAISY Award winner receives a certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a serpentine stone sculpture hand-carved by Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. For more information, visit bayhealth.org.
