In the nomination of Cassidy Nguyen, the following was written:

Cassidy is an excellent nurse and there are many situations that would qualify her to win the DAISY award but last week, she went completely above and beyond. A night last week, Cassidy had a post-operative patient who was extremely sick. As you can imagine, it was very, very hectic in the room all night long. Cassidy knew everything that was going on at all times and was advocating for the patient even when he was about to code again. But even during this craziness, Cassidy was always communicating with the family, comforting them when things were not looking good, and making sure that they were always in the loop and assured that we were doing everything possible for the patient. And this was all on a night that she wasn't feeling good and wanted to call out sick. I cannot say enough about the exemplary nursing care Cassidy gave and was very honored to be her co-worker that night.
