Kelin Stanley, BSN, RN, GERO-BC, nurse on the Medical Intensive Care Unit at Christiana Hospital has been honored with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses for the second time.

ChristianaCare DAISY Award recipients are nurses recognized for meeting and exceeding the needs and expectations of patients and families by displaying exceptional clinical skills, compassion, calm, respect and partnership.

Stanley was nominated by the brother of a patient who praised her for guiding his family through his sister’s last days “with kindness and grace.”

He wrote that the nurse “made us feel like we were in the presence of a superhero who can shine her brightest in the toughest of times. She treated us like family and helped to keep us calm, relaxed and confident as she guided us in how to move forward day by day until the end of our time in the MICU.”

He shared that he hopes the DAISY award will help her know how much she meant to his family during a very difficult time.

“I have interacted with many nurses and doctors, but none like Kelin,” her nominator wrote. “Her warm, welcoming presence and dedication to her patients are simply inspiring. Her actions will be a fond memory for the rest of my life. Thank you, Kelin, and Christiana for being there for us when it mattered most.”

The Professional Nurse Council at ChristianaCare selects DAISY Award recipients using an anonymous process based on nominations from patients, families and all members of the ChristianaCare team. All nurses — inpatient, outpatient and ChristianaCare HomeHealth — are eligible.
