Congratulations to University Hospitals St. John Medical Center Nurse Stasia Yanasek, BSN, RN, honored on Monday with the Daisy Award, a nationally-recognized honor for nurses who perform with excellence.
As a nurse on the UH SJMC Intermediate Care Unit (ICMU), Stasia was nominated for the award by peers, patients and patient families.
“Satsia works tirelessly for patients and she does it all with humor and grace,” reads one nominating letter. “She is helpful and thoughtful of her co-workers. Her number one concern is for the safety, comfort and care of her patients.”
“Stasia had a patient who had not been out of bed for 6 months. She worked tirelessly with therapy to get him up into a chair,” says another. “The patient was so grateful! It was just a very emotional and touching moment.”
“The daughter of a patient called to say how appreciative they were of the care Stasia provided and the difference it made in her mother’s life,” said a third.
