Congratulations to Haley Weidner, BSN, RN, C-EFM, a registered nurse in the Labor and Delivery Unit at Methodist Women's Hospital, for being honored with The DAISY Award! She was nominated by Methodist Hospital Critical Care Unit nurse Megan Reiten, who wrote:

“Haley was phenomenal from the moment she started. I had been pushing and laboring for a couple hours when she came on shift, and she came in straight and to the point with a plan to get my little man out. This was so appreciated. I am an ICU RN at Methodist Hospital, and I appreciated the positive attitude, but she knew what I needed to hear and got it done. My husband and I swear she was doing the jobs of three RNs. My son was born soon after she came on. ... Then we were lucky enough to keep her as our RN on Mother Baby that night. Long story short, I developed a postpartum hemorrhage several hours after giving birth. Haley was amazing at staying calm, cool and collected. During the whole situation, she explained and spoke to me like a critical care RN to a critical care RN. Whether she knew it or not, this helped tremendously. ... I have never forgotten her and that whole crew from that night and their incredible care and compassion for my family and me. Haley, to me, represents The Meaning of Care because of her positivity, knowledge and skills. Treating me like a patient/nurse at the same time helped to make a scary situation less traumatizing, and my memories from that night are not of how scary it was, but how cared for my son and I felt."
