Tomah Health nurse receives DAISY Award

TOMAH, Wis. (WKBT) — Tomah Health kicked off National Nurses Week by recognizing a special member of its nursing staff.

The hospital presented a DAISY Award to hospice case manager Siera Williams.

The award, established by the nonprofit DAISY Foundation, is given to nurses who have made a difference in patients’ lives.

Williams says it’s an honor to receive the award.

“I’m so excited to be nominated, just to hear from the families, their thoughts on a review of myself and the care that I’ve given, and to receive the DAISY Award, I don’t know if it can be described,” said Williams.

After the award was given, Tomah Health leaders continued to honor their nurses.

A tree was planted in front of the hospital to commemorate the work all 180 Tomah Health nurses do on a daily basis.
