Jackson, June 2017 1The June 2017 DAISY Award winner in Muskegon was Omeka Jackson, RN, from the 3rd floor on the Mercy Campus. Jackson was nominated by her peer, Ashley Valero, as well as a patient family member.

From colleague Ashley Valero:

“Omeka’s patient was ready to be discharged when he told Omeka that he had locked his apartment and did not have his keys. Omeka took the extra time to personally call the apartment complex and got the number for the on-call maintenance man. She spoke to him and was able to find a way to get the patient’s apartment unlocked. She is always going above and beyond for her patients!”

From the patient’s family member:

Omeka is an excellent communicator, fabulous nurse and a compassionate RN. She assisted in advocating for my family member with medication orders. She also assisted me in terms of resources and overall empathy for our situation.”
