Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce Jan Woodward as the October 2021 DAISY Honoree. Woodward was recognized for her professionalism and service in her role in the ICU.
“The reason Jan is so exceptional is her dedication towards her patients. Last March, I had a total knee replacement. Two days later, I had a Physical Therapy session. After my Physical Therapy session, I passed out, and a Code E was called. After determining the cause, I was whisked away for a CT scan, then to the ER/ICU Department. Jan was my nurse for my time in the ER/ICU Department. Jan’s devotion and care made for an easier recuperation. She seemed to anticipate my medical and emotional needs. All of my nurses are terrific, but Jan Woodard really boosted my morale. Jan will always be a winner for me.”
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.
