Carroll Hospital Presents Awards to Team Members for their Outstanding Care

Carroll Hospital recognized several team members with awards during December. The recipients were honored for their compassionate and exceptional patient care, which exemplifies the hospital’s SPIRIT values.

The honorees included:

Registered nurse Melanie Morrison, team leader in The Family Birthplace, who was presented with Carroll Hospital’s November DAISY Award. A nurse at the hospital for 25 years, Morrison was recognized for her patience, attentiveness and overall compassion toward a patient who was a first-time mom, as she was preparing to give birth in The Family Birthplace. Since the patient’s mother could not be with her, Morrison stood in as a supportive figure for the patient during her delivery. 

Registered nurse Brittany Weatherly, oncology, at the William E. Kahlert Regional Cancer Center, was presented with the Dragonfly Award. A nurse at the hospital since 2018, Weatherly was recognized for her exceptional care when she went out of her way to provide a patient with a resource to help him understand his family member’s illness and the best way to provide care.

Registered nurse Kerry Byrne, intermediate care unit, has worked at the hospital for four years.  She was also honored with the Dragonfly Award. She went over and above to help brighten the day of a patient, who had very few visitors, by giving her a personal “spa day” during her hospital stay.
