I am Yvonne Bradley's Clinical Nurse Manager and was approached by the COR at the Comp/Shaw Clinic requesting that she receive an award because all she does is "work". Yvonne is not involved in the chatter or worried about what others are doing; this ensures a positive work environment. Yvonne will stay late after work to finish crucial forms for patients such as reasonable accommodation for housing. As the only RN on duty; she manages the clinic flow with a calm understanding attitude. She takes care of patients, answers the phone, completes patient health forms; manages the vaccine inventory; coordinates patient care; triages patients and answers all of the nurse/sick advice calls during the day.
Caberia Smith, COR from Comp/Shaw Medical Home wishes to nominate Yvonne Bradley for the DAISY Award. Ms. Smith provided me with a copy of The Definition of a Nurse which states:"To go above and beyond the call of duty. The first to work and the last to leave. The heart and soul of caring. A unique soul who will pass through your life for a minute and impact it for eternity. An empowered individual whom you may meet for only an eight hour period. But who will put you and yours above theirs". This is Yvonne Bradley.
