Congratulations to Mardine Davis, PCA, who is the Friend of Nursing honoree for February 2015!
Mardine has earned several nominations to this program from patients, and seconded by Lacks 3 Leadership, where Mardine works.
From the nomination form writen by a patient’s daughter this past fall:
“Mardine was such an inspiration. She always came in Dad’s room with such a positive attitude. She had a sincere concern for the patient. She also gave my Dad the most complete bath ever. He is still talking about it. We feel blessed to have met her.”
A second nomination from the daughter of another patient:
“….My mother had not taken her medication correctly and was in great distress. During my mom’s stay Mardine was an angel for my mom. Mardine recommended a certain kind of soup. Mom tried it, liked it and ordered it often. She even told me to order it when I visited. Mardine also took the time to listen to my Mom. (She) comforted her both physically (soup) and mentally (listening).”
Congratulations to Mardine for her great compassionate care!
