His recent DAISY Award highlights his service in the ICU. Monney recently cared for a family grieving the loss of their grandfather. A note from that family reads: “During the entire process, having him in the room was comforting to each and every one of us. We knew my grandfather respected him and respected his professionalism throughout his stay.
