Foreman Recognized for Exceptional Nursing at CRMC

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce Nancy Foreman as the February 2021 DAISY Honoree. Forman, was nominated by an associate and was recognized for her dedication and involvement in the COVID-19 Clinic.

“Nancy has led our staff through this pandemic with a true servant’s heart. Nancy has been a resource for all of our other hospitals departments and our community’s clinics that do not perform COVID testing,” said Sandi Beree. “Whether they are leaving messages on her phone, calling her cell directly or just dropping by her office to ask questions, get patients scheduled or just discuss suspected exposures she is always available and willing to listen and respond with little to no notice. 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. She staffs and somehow directs patient care throughout each day while juggling all of our own staff that are out for various reasons (including COVID-19).”

“My 98 year old grandmother was recently in Acute Care, she was very confused and often scared during her stay. One day when I came to visit her I was surprised to find Dawna sitting by her and holding her hand, as I knew Dawna worked in Women’s Health,” said the nominator. “

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.”
