WESTON, W.Va. (WV News) — Meta Kirksey, RN, of Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, was recently honored with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s programs to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. This award was especially meaningful because Kirksey’s husband, Alberto, also won the award eleven years ago, according to a release from Mon Health.
The nomination submitted from one of Kirksey’s patients read, “Meta was instrumental in the process of helping to communicate the needs of the hospital and patient’s family to CORE. She was a bridge in advocating for the proper donor management and initiating the conversation between the procurement coordinator and Dr. Snuffer.
