DAISY award recognizes OMC teams

The DAISY Foundation has recognized Olympic Medical Center’s ICU/telemetry and respiratory therapy teams with its DAISY award.

Vickie Swanson, the center’s chief nursing officer, presented plaques to Katrin Junghanns-Royack, the director of ICU/telemetry, and to Dottie Crates, the manager of respiratory therapy. The award recognizes extraordinary, compassionate care provided to patients and families.

The foundation, which takes its name from the acronym Diseases Attacking the Immune System, was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died in 1999 from complications of the auto-immune disease idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
