Hedrick Recognized for Exceptional Nursing at CRMC

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce Reveca Hendrick as the April 2021 DAISY Honoree. Hendrick, was recognized for always being willing to lend a helping hand and for always going the extra mile to make sure patients understand their treatment plan.

“A patient and his wife presented to the ER after being given a terminal diagnosis from another doctor. The wife spoke broken English and acted as a translator for her husband but it was clear that they did not fully grasp the information that was given to them at their last appointment and had come looking for answers and help with his discomfort. Thanks to Reveca the ER physician was able to clearly explain to the patient and his wife both his prognosis and options available for comfort,” explained nominator Hailie Dixon. “Reveca then took things a step further and contacted a priest for the family since they were not local, she visited with them multiple times throughout the weekend while they were in another department, prayed with them, and stayed with the patient while the wife went to tend to her children at home. Other nurses caring for the patient would call for Reveca whenever they needed assistance translating and she would immediately make time to go and help. She was with this family to the end, a family she did not know prior to meeting them in our ER, and went above and beyond to make this heartbreaking situation as easy as possible for them.”

The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s mission to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care they provide patients and families every day. This is a nationally recognized award.

“They were not busy in Women’s Health that day and Dawna had come to Acute Care to help out. I am not sure what she was saying to my grandmother, but the fact that she was just sitting there and holding her hand was providing a feeling of safety and caring that both my grandmother and I needed that day, it made a lasting impression on me. All of the nurses and aides during her stay were fantastic.”

With all of this going on for the past 8 months you would think this was a fulltime job in itself. But in reality she also runs our RHC Primary Care Clinic.
