In a recent ceremony held in Riyadh, Laxmi Rachamallu, a dedicated and compassionate nurse, was honored with the prestigious DAISY Award for her outstanding contributions to patient care.

Laxmi Rachamallu, a registered nurse with over 14 years of experience, was nominated for the award by one of her patients who had received care from her during a difficult time. The patient shared that Laxmi went above and beyond her duties, providing emotional support and going out of her way to make them feel comfortable and cared for.

In addition to her exceptional patient care skills, Laxmi is also known for her leadership skills and dedication to mentoring new nurses. She has been praised for her ability to create a supportive and inclusive work environment that encourages collaboration and learning.

The DAISY Award committee was impressed by Laxmi’s commitment to providing the highest level of care to her patients and her unwavering dedication to the nursing profession. They recognized her as a role model for other nurses and praised her for embodying the core values of the DAISY Award.

At the ceremony, Laxmi was presented with a certificate of recognition, a DAISY Award pin, and a beautiful sculpture called “A Healer’s Touch,” which symbolizes the important work that nurses do every day. In her acceptance speech, Laxmi expressed her gratitude for the honor and dedicated the award to all the nurses who work tirelessly to make a difference in their patients’ lives.

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors nurses’ compassionate care. The award is given to nurses who are nominated by patients, families, and colleagues for their exceptional care. The Daisy Foundation, a non-profit organization, created the award in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died from complications of an auto-immune disease at the age of 33. Recipients of the award receive a certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture titled “A Healer’s Touch.”

The DAISY Award is a testament to the remarkable work that nurses like Laxmi Rachamallu do every day to provide exceptional care and support to their patients. Congratulations, Laxmi, on this well-deserved honor!
