Clarke County Hospital Announces 2024 Daisy Award Honoree

DAISY Award recognitions honor the super-human care nurses provide patients and families every day, wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve. This award was created in 1999, giving patients, families and co-workers an opportunity to express their gratitude for nurses who provide extraordinary compassionate care.  

Clarke County Hospital (CCH) is proud to announce Shane Auxier, RN as our 2024 Daisy Award Honoree. Shane works in our Med/Surg department and has been at CCH since 2022. He is frequently recognized for the compassion and kindness he shows when caring for his patients. Shane was nominated by a patient's relative for going above and beyond and being an extraordinary and compassionate nurse during a difficult time.

Here is Shane's nomination story:

"During the final stages of our father's life, he had two stays at Clarke County Hospital. Shane was his nurse both times. I have never experienced a more compassionate, caring, and kind person to care for a loved one. Shane would speak to my father and hold his hands. He would ensure we were all comfortable. He would be sure to communicate all changes with me and what to expect with the changes. He kept the room very clean. He went above and beyond any other nurse who cared for my father. His care at CCH has been amazing, but Shane made the transition to his last days much more peaceful and comforting. Clarke County Hospital is fortunate to have Shane on staff! Thank you, Shane, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything you did for our family and, most importantly, for caring for our dad. We will never forget the compassion you showed all of us." 

CCH would like to congratulate Shane and thank him for the compassion and care he gives his patients and the inspiration he provides us all!
