Mario's manager describes him as a "Model of Nursing". She states, "He is compassionate, has extraordinary clinical skills, is flexible, has a can do attitude', and really deserves to be recognized with the DAISY AWARD".
Mario was nominated by a family that was extremely pleased with the care that he provided to their husband / father. They stated:
"He gave the best care possible, not only to the patient but to our family as well. He was always available, explained everything in a way we could understand, and nothing was ever too much trouble for him. He was reassuring while at the same time honest about my husband's grave condition. He encouraged my husband, but also let him know how smoking was affecting his quality of life. Mario went out of his way to get information about the stop smoking' clinic and the resources available for my husband. Mario is a TOP CLASS NURSE."
Mario is a remarkable nurse and he exemplifies the VALUES of Kaiser Permanente Nursing. He provides EXCELLENT care, with INTEGRITY and COMPASSION; he is a TEAM player, extremely PROFESSIONAL, and keeps the PATIENT AND FAMILY IN THE CENTER of everything that he does. He truly provides Extraordinary Nursing Care, Every Patient, Every Time.
