Alisha Peters, RN, Award First DAISY Award at NLH

GLOVERSVILLE, NY — Strapped with a yellow facemask, nurse Alisha Peters had finished hooking an IV into a patient when two staff members told her to step outside the hospital room.

A group of cheerful employees surrounded the hallway. Her husband was there. Her parents were there. Her two tawny-haired daughters were there.
