Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce Kelci McVey as the May 2023 DAISY Honoree. McVey was recognized for her professionalism and confidence in her role working in Women’s Health.
Kelci received a surgical patient to the Women’s Health Unit that had an open laparotomy with bilateral oophorectomy. This patient had recently completed chemotherapy and has a history of kidney disease as well as a multitude of other health issues. Kelci quickly realized that this patient was in need of Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy, as well as possible home services. She was in contact with Acute Care nurse, Gabby, which was a huge help, regarding all these extra needs that she was not used to helping set up. In speaking with Gabby, she also realized she needed a MOON form for this patient. She obtained the form from Acute Care and made sure it was signed by the patient. The patient also requested DPOA paperwork. Kelci obtained this also from Acute Care and helped the patient get this finalized. Kelci went above and beyond in so many ways for this patient. I could go on and on about the phenomenal care this patient received from Kelci!! Kelci was out of her comfort zone with this patient, but she kept pushing until she got all the answers she needed. I am so proud to have her as a nurse in my department. Great job Kelci!
