As part of Nurses Week, King's Daughters accepted nominations for the
inaugural Bev Coleman Nursing Excellence Award, which recognizes a nurse
who has exhibited the highest levels of nursing excellence and has positively
influenced the nursing culture including:
• Positivity in the face of adversity
Today, Vicki Cossett, a dedicated registered nurse in the Mother Baby Unit,
received the award.
She was nominated by nurse leader Janet Woods, who writes: Vicki truly
loves what she does and it shows. Her coworkers call her “Jiminy
Cricket” because she lovingly mothers them. Her patients and families
love her because she cares for them as if they were her own daughters.
When you think of qualities you could want or wish for in a nurse, you
will find Vicki. She exemplifies all characteristics of nursing excellence.
She would never consider herself a person to be recognized because she
is genuine. The care she provides is real. Just like Bev, the shift is
better when Vicki is there.
