Michelle Johnson, is Winchester Hospital’s most recent recipient of the DAISY Award after a fellow nurse nominated her for “going above and beyond” as she arranged for a dying patient to see her daughter’s wedding.
In the nomination, the nurse described how Michelle took care of her patient as the end grew near. According to the nurse, when Michelle asked the patient what her last wishes were, the patient wanted to see her daughter get married. Knowing the patient wouldn’t be able to see the ceremony, Michelle arranged for her wedding day to be moved up. And on the day of the wedding, Michelle offered to help the patient get dressed for the big day and granted her last wish.
