Franciscan St. Francis nurses Cherie Walls and Bonnie Hicks have been honored as recent recipients of the hospital’s Daisy Awards for nursing excellence.
Walls works at the hospital’s Mooresville campus in the emergency department. Hicks works on the post-surgical unit at the Indianapolis hospital.
The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of an autoimmune disease. His family was so impressed by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for him, that they created this national award to say “thank you” to nurses everywhere.
