Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce Marcy Diver as the May 2021 DAISY Honoree. Diver, was recognized for her compassion and empathy to patient’s families during their time in the ICU. Diver had two nominations from a CRMC associate and a former patient’s family member.
“My family and I want to thank your staff for the excellent care he was given; and especially for allowing our family to be with him in ICU. The ICU staff, especially Marcy Diver, are special people that care deeply for the sick and respect their families,” said a patient’s family member. “It is heartbreaking to think of people dying alone and families not allowed to be with 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.
The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. (DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.) The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.
