Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital honors outstanding nurse with DAISY Award
Phillip Fisher, RN, is Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s DAISY Award winner, a national honor that recognizes the contributions of extraordinary nurses.
Phillip is a nurse in the ICU department who was nominated by the wife of one of his patients. In the wife’s nomination she described that while caring for her husband, Phillip and the other nurses all demonstrated knowledge and skills while easing her husband’s discomfort and calming him down when he showed signs of fear.
“Phillip embodies the values we strive for,” said Janet Leatherwood, Chief Nursing Officer of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. “He is a constant example of a nurse who is truly passionate about being a nurse and helping others.”
In honor of his DAISY Award selection, Phillip received a certificate of appreciation, a DAISY Award pin and a beautiful sculpture titled “A Healer’s Touch,” hand-carved by artists of the Shona tribe in Zimbabwe. Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s committee selects a DAISY Award winner each quarter.
“We are proud to be among the hospitals participating in the DAISY Award program,” said Leatherwood. “Nurses like Phillip are everyday heroes who demonstrate excellence through clinical expertise and compassionate care, and we are excited to be able to recognize him – and our future winners – as outstanding role models for the nursing profession.”
