McLaren Greater Lansing nurse DeLise Robinson has been honored with the DAISY Foundation’s Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of DAISY’s program to recognize the exceptional care that nurses provide every day. Robinson was nominated by a patient for her outstanding and compassionate care. The patient said while Robinson cared for her, she felt like family.
“DeLise puts her job aside and helps you, as if she was family and not getting paid to. When it comes to DeLise, it’s not about the next paycheck; she truly loves her job,” the patient wrote. “If you need to talk or cry, she is right there. DeLise is always on time with your meds. She will bring you treats or something to eat when you ask. She is just a genuine great human being with a gold heart. She is truly an amazing person, and I am glad she came into my life. I will call her more than my nurse, but a friend as well. She will bend over backward for her patients.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart, DeLise. You are an amazing woman and you will always be in my heart. I am so grateful and blessed you came into my life when I was at my worst. You made my stay worth it, making me healthy again.”
