MLKCH nurse receives DAISY Award

Christopher McBride, an intensive care nurse who takes care of the most critical cases at Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital (MLKCH) has won The DAISY Award, which recognizes extraordinary nurses. 

The peer-nominated award is given to nurses who go above and beyond for their patients and is sponsored by the non-profit DAISY Foundation. More than 4,500 healthcare facilities and schools across the nation and in 28 other countries present the award annually to their top nursing staff.

Christopher was nominated by the MLKCH maternity department for going above and beyond for a maternity patient. Based in the intensive care unit, he was called upon by maternity to share his expertise for a unique and delicate situation, which he handled with the utmost precision and care.

“The way that Christopher managed this situation speaks volumes to who he is as a professional nurse and MLKCH employee that lives up to our values: caring, collaboration, accountability, respect, and excellence,” said Tammy Turner, perinatal nurse manager.

MLKCH congratulates Christopher on this distinguished honor.
