Candace Motta, R.N., a clinical nurse on the Surgical Neurosciences Unit, is our newest DAISY Award recipient.

She was nominated for this honor by a patient who wrote:

Candace has made every second of my stay a great experience. Here’s eight reasons why she’s a special nurse:

  • She cares for all of her patients.
  • Candace always makes sure I’m feeling okay.
  • She’s there to immediately cheer me up. She can brighten your mood with just a smile.
  • When she’s finished with everything, she’ll come to my room and play games.
  • Candace makes sure I’m on track. She helps me get out of bed to do my physical and occupational therapy.
  • She’ll take me to the garden so I can get out of the room for a little sunlight.
  • When I need someone to talk to, Candace is an excellent listener.
  • She’s an all-around amazing person.

Candace’s nursing leadership team added:

Candace recently celebrated her 10-year anniversary on the Surgical Neurosciences Unit. She joined Johns Hopkins All Children's as a patient care technician, and completed the R.N. residency program one year later. Candace is a true advocate and exemplifies service standards in her daily practice. Her positive can-do attitude and levelheadedness in stressful situations allows her to listen and serve as a voice for patients and families. Candace’s willingness, exceptional assessment skills and clear communication provide a conducive learning atmosphere for new staff. We are extremely lucky to have her as a member of our team.

Congratulations, Candace, and thank you for your commitment to patient- and family-centered care.​
