Godfrey earns DAISY award
Fauquier Health has selected Registered Nurse Linda Godfrey as its second DAISY Team award recipient of 2021.
A strong nomination that came in for Linda consisted of the special care and attention she provided to her patient during their stay. The patient, an 86-year old
A retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonel, 86, nominated Ms. Godfrey because of her care during his medical procedure.
“One of the attending surgical nurses, Linda Godfrey, made my stay so much better than it might have been because of her superior responsiveness and demonstrated caring service,” he wrote. “It takes some doing to be able to make the person who is in bed feel better simply because of your presence and actions. Nurse Godfrey demonstrated this ability in spades!”
Family members established the not-for-profit DAISY Foundation, based in Glen Ellen, Calif., in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon autoimmune disease. The care Mr. Barnes and his family received from nurses inspired their effort.
Healthcare providers around the world have adopted the DAISY Award to honor nurses for extraordinary care and compassion. The DAISY Team Award recognizes nurse-led teams of two or more who come together to solve a specific situation by going above and beyond.
Patients, families and colleagues may make nominations. At Fauquier Health, a committee of nurses selects the recipients.

The Fauquier Chamber of Commerce will host the festival — one of its biggest fundraisers — from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, on Main Street.
The Old Town Warrenton Spring Into Fall Festival offered 10-by-10-foot vendor spaces at $175 apiece for businesses, crafters and nonprofits and $250 apiece for food providers.
With free admission, the festival typically attracts 20,000 to 25,000 people.
In 2019, the chamber generated more than $33,700 in revenue with the festival. Because of the pandemic, the organization cancelled the festival last year.
