Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce Shana Housel as the September 2021 DAISY Honoree. Housel was recognized for her professionalism and confidence in the ER Department.
“Shana always shows such compassion for her patients. No matter how many patients are in ER, she is always kind and passionate toward her patients. Shana really does care about each one of her patients. Not only have I had the opportunity to see Shana taking care of others but also I have actually been one of her patients when I had a gallbladder attack and had to go to surgery. Shana was fantastic, she made me feel at ease and I knew I was getting the best care possible. Shana is a fantastic nurse with a great attitude, and we are lucky to have her as one of our very own ER nurses.”
Additionally, Housel received a second DAISY nomination: “Shana was working in the ER when we had to bring in our 2-year-old daughter. Shana was so careful and caring with our daughter and did her absolute best to make sure our daughter was taken care of. When we were transferred to St. Francis, I wish we could have taken her with us! I felt very comfortable and confident in the care our daughter was receiving when she was under Shana’s care. She also went out of their way to check on our daughter when we left. The IV they administered was the same IV location that was used the entire 6 days at St. Francis. She received the first and only stick at CRMC. She is a fantastic nurse and especially with small children.”
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.
