Kristi Ridgell, R.N., receives Carroll Hospital’s June DAISY Award

Registered nurse Kristi Ridgell, intermediate care unit, (IMC), was presented with Carroll Hospital’s June DAISY Award. A nurse at the hospital since 2017, Ridgell was recognized for going above and beyond her duties to follow up with a patient and ensure he received the medical intervention he needed at home.

“By calling and following up with this patient, Kristi’s care went beyond the hospital’s walls. And her quick thinking allowed the patient to receive the medical intervention and education he needed at home safely without his condition worsening and him having to be transported to the hospital,” said Stephanie Reid, chief nursing officer and vice president of patient care services at Carroll Hospital.

Carroll Hospital’s DAISY Award honors outstanding healthcare professionals at the hospital. It is given to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse each month to recognize his or her extraordinary efforts in delivering exceptional patient care.

Carroll Hospital, a LifeBridge Health Center, is a nonprofit, acute care facility offering the latest in medical technology, experienced medical professionals in a variety of specialties and da continuum of programs and services to meet the needs of the community.
