CHI Memorial Honors Julie Stoll with DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses

CHI Memorial recently honored Julie Stoll, RN, with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.

A patient’s family nominated Julie for her compassion during a difficult time.  “Julie was on the night shift as the charge nurse for my grandma. I understand that all the nurses do what they can to protect them and give the best care to the patients, but Julie kept humanity in mind while she did that. Julie was laughing, smiling, and joking all while maintaining her professionalism and keeping my mamaw at the center of concern. This was the night before we were putting my Mamaw in comfort care, so Julie knew we would be losing her soon. She made a decision that allowed our family to spend more time with my mamaw; time that we could never ever get back to spend with her right at the end. Julie was such a sweet and effective nurse, but what she really did was remind us that medicine CAN include humanity and it doesn’t always have to be about loss and sadness. There are nurses who will see the family as people and try to treat them like it, especially at the end when that really, really matters. Thank you so much, Julie! You made a huge difference for us that night!.”

Julie works in the Critical Care Unit (CCU) at CHI Memorial Hospital Chattanooga and has worked at CHI Memorial since July 2019.

CHI Memorial is pleased to partner with the DAISY Foundation to recognize the extraordinary difference nurses make in the lives of patients and co-workers. Nurses are chosen each month to receive this wonderful award that honors compassionate care.  

Honorees receive a bouquet of daisies, a certificate, a copy of her/his nomination letter, and a beautiful and meaningful sculpture called A Healer’s Touch - hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.  The honoree's nursing unit also receives a cinnamon doughnut party, because it takes a team for a nurse to achieve his/her best.  Tasty Doughnuts generously donates the treats for this worthy cause.
