Lisa Longinotti Honored with DAISY Award

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that nurses are heroes on the cancer journey. Whether they’re walking patients through their first infusion treatment, educating caregivers on how to make their patients more comfortable or providing a listening ear, they do so much to provide exceptional care – and CARTI is fortunate to have a team full of nurses who go above and beyond.

The DAISY Award is awarded every quarter to an outstanding nurse who shows not only expertise in clinical care, but also compassion for their patients. The award is given based on nominations from patients, families and co-workers – first hand accounts of the diligence, kindness and determination displayed by these nurses each day. Three of CARTI’s nurses were recently honored with DAISY Awards, and we’re so proud to see their hard work recognized in such a meaningful way.
