TMH Nurse Wins DAISY Award For Nursing Excellence

A Taylorville Memorial Hospital nurse wins a nursing excellence award. 


Taylorville Memorial Hospital says that Nicholas Lavin, a registered nurse in the Emergency Department, received the DAISY Award for Nursing Excellence. 


A patient nominated Lavin for the award. In the nomination form, the patient says that Lavin is professional and takes time to explain everything during visits. The patient added that Lavin explains why tests are performed and the details of any medications he administered. 


Lavin has worked at Taylorville Memorial Hospital since 2018. 

The family of J. Patric Barnes established the DAISY Foundation. Barnes died from complications of an autoimmune disease. The care nurses provided to Barnes during his illness inspired Barnes’ family to create the foundation.
