TUPELO, Miss.—Registered nurse Robin Scott of 6 South recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s DAISY Award for December 2018.
She received a certificate, a DAISY Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and a hand-carved stone sculpture titled A Healer’s Touch.
“Robin came to the rescue in an emergency situation, like she has so many times before, and was more than willing to use her nursing and critical thinking skills at a critical moment to save someone’s life,” wrote a coworker who nominated Scott for the award. “She hopped up on a bed with the patient to apply pressure to an inguinal arterial bleed. She stayed on that bed holding pressure through the corridors and the elevators of this hospital with him. Her actions were done so well that by the time the CT was performed, the massive arterial bleed had stopped.”
A Pontotoc resident, Scott earned her associate degree in nursing from Itawamba Community College in 2009. She joined the NMMC staff in 2011 and has worked on 6 South throughout her tenure. She completed her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Mississippi College in 2018. She holds Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification and TB certification, and is a Stroke Certified Registered Nurse.
The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary compassionate and skillful care given by nurses every day. For more information, call (662) 377-3431 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
