The nursing teams who work together at the Center for Joint Replacement at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital recently received the DAISY Team Nursing Award for their dedication to achieving accreditation from The Joint Commission as a Gold Seal Joint Center of Excellence. Members of the Center for Joint Replacement team at Newark include nurses, physicians and staff from 2 Central, Rochester Regional Finger Lakes Bone & Joint, Regulatory, Surgical Services, and Rehabilitation Services.
The DAISY Team Award is given to a multidisciplinary team and recognizes that while an idea to achieve better patient and family outcomes may start with one individual, it often takes an entire team to successfully implement. The DAISY Team Award is designed to honor collaboration by two or more people, led by a nurse, who identify and meet patient and/or patient family needs by going above-and-beyond the traditional role of nursing.
The Ortho Team at Newark is a committed to positive patient outcomes and positive patient experiences. We are proud to honor their hard work with the DAISY Team Award.
