HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) - It's National Nurses Week and Tuesday night, Baystate Medical Center honored one nurse for going above and beyond.
Lisa Cabibbo received the Compassionate Caregiver award at a ceremony Tuesday night in Holyoke. Cabibbo is known for her random acts of kindness; everything from crocheting prayer shawls for terminally ill patients to helping a homeless man she treated for Alzheimer's.
"He had no clothes, nothing to wear when he left, so I decided to buy him some shorts and shirts and flip flops so he could have something to wear," said Cabibbo.
Tuesday night's event wasn't just to honor Cabibbo; all nurses at Baystate Medical Center were also given recognition.
