Leslie Lemus, registered nurse at WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital, received the February DAISY award for the exceptional care that she provided to a patient. This is Leslie’s second DAISY award!
Leslie was nominated by a team member for this award after advocating for the care of a patient when she became concerned about a patient and their diagnosis.
Her team member wrote:
“She gives her heart, body, and mind to these patients and we would all be lucky to have her as a nurse for ourselves or our family members. I am proud to be part of her team and she inspires me to work harder and continue to advocate for our patients every day. She is an extraordinary nurse.”
WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital extends its gratitude to Leslie for providing 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.
