Created to specifically honor nurse assistants, the Clover Award recognizes excellence and the vital role nurse assistants play in patient care. The nurse assistant’s clinical skill, combined with compassionate care, exemplify the kind of nurse assistant our patients, their families and our staff recognize as an outstanding role model.
Nominations may be submitted by volunteers, physicians, staff members, RN/LVNs, and patients and their family members or visitors. Clover Award nominees must consistently meet the following criteria:
- Hospital nurse assistant
- 80 percent involvement in direct patient care
- No written counseling in the last 12 months
The nomination process is identical to the Daisy Award. Nominators fill out a form asking them to describe the situation in which the nurse assistant nominee clearly demonstrated they meet the criteria for the Clover Award.
