NMMC Presents DAISY Award to Kincaid
TUPELO, Mississippi—North Mississippi Medical Center recently presented a DAISY Award to registered nurse Katie Kincaid of 3 West.
A coworker nominated Kincaid for providing DVDs for a patient to watch and getting approval for his grandchildren, who are in his custody, to visit because they had not seen each other for two weeks. “I believe that the actions Katie took made a meaningful difference in his stay,” she wrote.
A 2013 graduate of Saltillo High School, Kincaid attended the University of Mississippi before completing her associate degree in nursing from Itawamba Community College in 2019. She lives in Tupelo and joined the NMMC staff in 2020, working on 5 West before transferring to 3 West.
The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary compassionate and skillful care given by nurses every day. Nomination forms are available throughout NMMC or at www.nmhs.net/daisy-award. For more information, call (662) 377-3431 or email email@example.com.
