LEWISTON — Registered nurse Allison Ray has been recognized as a Central Maine Medical Center DAISY Award recipient.

The DAISY Award is sponsored by the DAISY Foundation. DAISY is an acronym for “diseases attacking the immune system.”

The foundation is headquartered in Glen Ellen, Calif., and recognizes nurses who consistently demonstrate compassion, critical thinking skills, passion about life, patient- and family-focused care, patient advocacy, support of all health care team members and nursing profession role model.

Ray works on the fourth floor of the Memorial Wing, Pediatrics/Adult Medical-Surgical Nursing Unit. She was nominated for the award for her ongoing job performance, which particularly came to notice during the stay of a patient suffering from respiratory failure.

Patients, visitors, physicians and co-workers can nominate nurses who they feel deserve to be recognized with the DAISY Award.
