TEMPLETON — For definitive observation and intensive care, Twin Cities Community Hospital nurses cannot be beat — this according to the DAISY Foundation, which judges extraordinary nursing across the world.
This is the first time DAISY Foundation — Diseases Attacking the Immune System — has awarded the quarterly awarded DAISY Award to an entire nursing team — 50 nurses total at Twin Cities.
“Our nursing staff — this was a critical care team award — we really use relationship-based care,” said Director of Twin Cities ICU/DOU Sheila McMillan. “Building relationships with the patients and their families is really one of the most beneficial things we can do for them. When patients come in, they’re often strangers in a strange environment — they’re scared. Making them feel secure, helping them feel safe and building trust in the people taking care of them, that’s the way we are here.”For the complete article see the 03-07-2014 issue.
