LANSING, Mich. — McLaren Greater Lansing nurse Charlie Hall was honored with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the exceptional care nurses provide every day.
The nomination that was submitted by a patient read, “this is the second encounter I’ve had with Charlie in the ER.

She’s a great nurse and I feel blessed to have had her care for not only myself but my 2-year-old daughter as well.”
Hall was rewarded by hospital leadership and co-workers and received a certificate commending her for being an "Extraordinary Nurse," as well as a sculpture called "A Healer's Touch," hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.
