Lindsey Tredinnick is an outstanding role model and advocate for patient/family centered care. She is recognized for her recent efforts in organizing a wedding on our unit for a terminal cancer patient. Lindsey is a DAISY nurse. Lindsey went above and beyond the call of duty in order to make this event something the patient and family would remember forever. Not only did she organize all of the wedding day events, she collaborated with the social worker, other nurses on the unit, doctors, PCTs, and the chaplain’s office to make sure everything went smoothly. Lindsey organized a unit fundraiser to get decorations for the wedding and even donated her own time to decorate, clean, and be here for the events.
Lindsey's actions display the values of MUSC to the highest standard. Her caring nature is something that comes natural to her. She displayed excellent clinical leadership and interpersonal skills. The wedding would have never happened without her, and we are so very lucky to have her as a nurse and role model on this unit.
