Lindsay Lawless, RN is a 2020 Daisy Award Recipient

We are in the middle of celebrating Nurses Week here at the UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging. This observance was started by the American Nurses Association to celebrate and elevate the nursing profession.

This year, the department is happy to announce that Lindsay Lawless, RN, was selected as a Daisy Nurse Award recipient. The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses was established by the DAISY Foundation (Foundation for the elimination of Diseases Attacking the Immune System) in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. The award is given to honor, recognize and express appreciation for the extraordinary work that nurses do every day.

According to Charlene Fong, RN, administrative nurse and supervisor, there were multiple nominations submitted for Lawless. The quote below summarizes them all:

"No one adds more humanity to our department than does Lindsay. She has advocated for and embraced the high level of service provided to our pediatric patients and their families. Her level of nursing care and pediatric expertise has been recognized by colleagues at all levels - nurses, physicians, social workers and leadership. She advocates to increase access to patients from all socioeconomic backgrounds, and spends many hours on the phone, coordinating multiple physicians and social workers to bring patients in for imaging that will lead to appropriate treatment."

Join us in congratulating Lindsay Lawless, RN on this well-deserved recognition. Normally, UCSF Health holds an annual Nurses' Week Awards ceremony. With social distancing still in place, the date has not yet been determined for presentation of Lawless' award which includes a beautiful statue, certificate and pin.
