BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Bakersfield Heart Hospital awarded the 2021 Daisy Award to Critical Care Unit Registered Nurse Andrew Domingo for the care he provided a patient and his family when having to make an end-of-life transition.

Bakersfield Heart Hospital gives the Daisy Award to an outstanding nurse. Domingo was nominated by the sister of a patient who says he went “above and beyond” in caring for her brother.

“Andrew made sure we (myself and my two brothers) were informed regarding his treatment medications, transition, and did this with the utmost respect. We were tasked with making end-of-life decisions for my brother that took us all by surprise but Andrew’s kindness, patience, and knowledge helped us make those decisions comfortably. I truly felt that Andrew was not just Brian’s nurse but a member of our family today and I thank God he was there for us.”
