Julia Campbell, RN, nurse on the medical/surgical unit at East Georgia Regional Medical Center, was awarded the hospital’s DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Campbell has worked at the hospital since 2017 and has been a registered nurse since 2012. 

Part of Campbell’s nomination included a description of her compassion from one of her recent patients. Here’s an excerpt from the nomination: 

“I found Julia to be a competent professional with a friendly and caring personality. She projects a sense of caring and compassion for her patients. She conveys the feeling that her patient is the focus of her efforts. These observations are based upon her service as my nurse, but also the observations of her efforts to teach her nursing aide. I truly believe that her teaching efforts will result in a better nurse. She appears to have the talent to teach and learn – not successful without both. Julia is a dedicated nurse and leader, deserving of recognition for her dedication to nursing and teaching. ”

Nominations were reviewed by a committee of nurses at EGRMC. Campbell was selected in recognition of the difference she makes in the lives of patients.

“I wasn’t surprised to read this award nomination for Julia,” said Marie Burdett, BSN, RN, chief nursing officer at East Georgia. “She is a competent, compassionate nurse, and is well-respected among her peers. Julia is an excellent nurse and very deserving of this recognition.”

The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the efforts nurses perform every day. The DAISY Awards are given throughout the year at presentations given in front of the nurse’s colleagues, physicians, patients and visitors.

“The dedication and sacrifices of our nurses do not go unnoticed,” said Paul Theriot, chief executive officer of the Medical Center. “Many of us have experienced a nurse’s kindness, devotion, and compassion. Nurses are our everyday heroes, and The DAISY Foundation provides a way for us to shed light on their heroism through this award program.”
