Recently, HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital awarded Sarah Winet, RNC-EFM, CLC, a Highland, Ill. Resident, with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Winet serves as a Registered Nurse from St. Elizabeth’s Mother Child Center. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s nationwide program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day.

The nomination was submitted by a mother who had multiple encounters with Winet, from childbirth class to days spent in labor and delivery and the Operating Room (OR). The nomination shared, “I’d like to take some time to send professional kudos to one of your nurses, Sarah, for a job well done… My husband and I were scheduled for a birth class on a Saturday. My husband had to go alone and was going to debrief me later because I was on bed rest, due to PPROM [preterm premature rupture of membranes]. To my surprise, Sarah brought the class to my [hospital] room since my husband was the only one in attendance. As a first-time mom and dad to twin boys, this meant a lot to us. Sarah was very attentive to our questions and anxieties. We were very pleased with her caring outstanding service that day and again when she was my L&D [Labor and Delivery] nurse, and also on the special day our boys were born in the OR. Sarah was coaching and cheering me along with Kayla [a nurse] and Dawnya [a labor tech]. At a point where I thought I couldn’t push anymore, Sarah… coached me through to see our first-born! Kudos to Sarah!”

“I am honored to receive the National DAISY Award,” shared Winet. “Receiving an award for doing something you truly love is a gift. To have been nominated for this award by a patient is even more of an honor. The field of nursing is challenging, yet incredibly rewarding and I feel very blessed to care for our patients during this monumental experience! ”
