▪ Megan Black, RN was awarded the April Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses Recipient. She began her nursing career at Piedmont Medical Center in 2016 and currently on the Medical/Surgical unit.
Black was nominated for the award by a patient she cared for in late March. The patient wrote: “I had the pleasure of being cared for by Megan Black, RN. She was all a patient would want in a caregiver. She went above and beyond to make my stay as pleasant as possible. She is a very caring person, not because it is her job, but it is just who she is, her personality. It is obvious that she loves what she is doing.”
The Daisy Award was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, a cancer patient who lost his battle after a brief period of time.
