Meritus Health

Sira Diakite, RN, was the recipient of Meritus Health’s December/January DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses and Brenda Walling, RN, was selected as the March honoree.

According to a recent Meritus Medical Center patient, Diakite “will do whatever it takes to make sure her patients are as comfortable, safe and secure as possible. She has respect for patients, co-workers, doctors, etc. We need many more like her.”

In regard to Walling, a relative of a recent patient stated, “Having to work around so many of us in an already crowded room had to be a challenge for Ms. Walling, but she never made us feel that we were in the way. Certainly an emotional time for all of us, her compassion certainly was such a comfort … Meritus Medical Center should be proud to have her on the staff. Ms. Walling is a great example of who a nurse should be. She is professional, caring and compassionate all in one.”

Meritus Health’s DAISY, or Diseases Attacking the Immune System, nurse recognition program is sponsored by the family of Jean Toms, RN.

The award was established nationally to recognize the superhuman efforts nurses perform every day.
