ZEPHYRHILLS, FL (February 25, 2016) Kimberly Cicanese, RN, has been presented with the most recent DAISY Award for excellence in nursing by Florida Hospital Zephyrhills (FHZ). Cicanese joined the not-for-profit, faith-based hospital in 2012 and works in surgical services. She was nominated for this award by a patient who stated, "Kim was so pleasant and caring and went above the norm to be sure my friend was relaxed and comfortable. She explained everything and prayed with us. I have never experienced this kind of care."
Patients, their loved ones and visitors can nominate a nurse for a DAISY Award and FHZ leadership vote on the nominations.
During a ceremony, Cicanese was presented with a DAISY Award appreciation certificate for being an "Extraordinary Nurse" and a small sculpture called "A Healer's Touch." The design for the latter originates from the Shona Tribe in Africa.
