NMMC Presents DAISY Award to Mitchell
TUPELO, Mississippi—North Mississippi Medical Center recently presented the DAISY Award to Madison Mitchell, RN, a charge nurse on 3 Central.
Mitchell was caring for a patient who was recovering from COVID-19. The patient’s husband had passed away a few days prior. “The patient shared with Madison that her husband nicknamed her ‘Blue’ as a term of endearment because he would give her a blue silk rose every time he picked her up for a date,” a coworker wrote in her nomination. “Madison was so touched by the story that she gifted this patient with a vase of blue silk roses in loving memory of her husband. Three Central is so honored to have such a kind-hearted RN like Madison.”
Mitchell, who lives in Amory, graduated from Amory High School in 2016 and earned an associate degree in biology from Itawamba Community College in 2018. She completed her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Mississippi University for Women in 2021. Mitchell was hired at HealthWorks! in 2016 and served as a nursing intern and extern on 3 Central before joining the staff full-time upon graduation.
The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary compassionate and skillful care given by nurses every day.
