Abby Price Receives September DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

Abby Price, Meadows Regional Medical Center Labor and Delivery RN, received the September DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses on Friday, October 26.

The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize nurses who go above and beyond in providing excellent care to their patients every day. Meadows Regional Medical Center, a proud DAISY Award hospital partner, recognizes one nurse each month to receive the special award.

“Abby is a wonderful deserving nurse,” said Meadows Regional Medical Center Chief Nursing Officer, Jeffrey Harden. “She always goes the extra mile to take care of our patients.”

Price has been employed with Meadows Regional Medical Center for nine years and currently resides in Soperton.

The Daisy Award was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. The care Patrick and his family received during his hospital stay inspired this unique means of recognizing extraordinary nurses who make an enormous difference in the lives of patients.
