DAISY Award Honors ED Nurse for Compassionate Care

Rebecca Taul, a nurse in Duke Raleigh Hospital’s Emergency Department, was the most recent recipient of our DAISY Award. A patient, who nominated Taul for the award, described her as a “truly remarkable” provider of compassionate care.

“She is an amazing presence and a fantastic nurse who takes the time to make patients and their family feel comfortable, in the know on progress, and her overall positivity is just inspiring for having been a nurse for 17 years,” the patient wrote in the nomination letter.

Duke Raleigh Hospital awards outstanding nurses with the DAISY awards throughout the year. Recipients are selected from nominations submitted by patients, their families and co-workers. The award celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day.

Duke Raleigh Hospital Earns Another “A” Grade for Safety

Nursing team members prepare a room in Duke Raleigh Hospital’s new South Pavilion.

The Leapfrog Group awarded top “A” grades to Duke Raleigh HospitalDuke University Hospital, and Duke Regional Hospital on its Fall 2021 report card. This honorable distinction reflects the health system’s commitment to protecting patients and providing exceptional care.

Duke Raleigh Hospital has maintained an “A” safety grade since fall 2012 making it one of only 34 nationwide to achieve this record and one out of two hospitals in North Carolina to earn 19 “As” in a row, according to Leapfrog.

Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses more than 30 evidence-based measures of patient safety data for nearly 3,000 facilities twice per year. The grade is based on a hospital’s performance preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections, and other harms to patients in their care.

Comparisons of hospital scores locally and nationally are available at hospitalsafetygrade.org.
