His family was inspired to create the program as a way to honor the compassionate care provided by the nurses during his hospitalization.
As a DAISY Honoree, Leonard joins the ranks of exceptional nurses globally who have been recognized for their extraordinary contributions to patient care. The award serves as a reminder of nurses’ positive impact on individuals and communities.
