Shannon Weymer, Registered Nurse at WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital received the November DAISY award for the exceptional care and compassion she showed to a patient and his family during a difficult time.
The patient’s wife shared the following words:
“My husband was in the hospital unexpectedly. When he got there, we found out he had stage 4 cancer. Shannon did everything she could to not only care for him but also the entire family.
We had one daughter flying to Harrisburg and Shannon facilitated having her picked up and provided dinner for all of us.
The care she gave my husband was excellent and above and beyond what I ever expected. Then to try to help all of us too was way beyond anything anyone has ever done for us.
Shannon has since become a friend to many of our children and me as well. She has been so kind, considerate, understanding and compassionate to all of us."
WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital extends its gratitude to Shannon for going above and beyond to provide exceptional care and compassion to her patients.

About DAISY awards:
The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto‐immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say, “thank you” to nurses in a very public way.
