Three Fairview Range Nurses Receive DAISY Awards

Launched in 2023 at Fairview Range, the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses program gives patients, family members, colleagues and others a new way to honor the skillful and compassionate care our nurses bring to their daily work.

Although dozens of Fairview Range nurses were nominated throughout the year – and received a special certificate and pin in recognition of their nomination – three of the nurses were chosen as a recipient of the DAISY Award, for which they were given another certificate and pin, as well as a hand-carved statue during a special ceremony held recently at the hospital in Hibbing.

The nurses who received the awards were:

  • Jessica Troumbly, RN, Women’s Health & Birth Center 
    • Jessica was nominated by a family who experienced the tragic loss of their baby after an emergency C-section.  The lengthy nomination praised Jessica for her compassion during such a difficult time, stating “She helped me heal with my grief, if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have been able to heal properly.  I wish every nurse had compassion and care for their patients like her.  She is truly one of the best nurses I have ever had.”  Her communication was another aspect that was recognized, “She didn’t overwhelm me with a bunch of information all at once.  She also communicated with my mom; every time my mom would leave and come into my room, Jessica would stop her and talk to her.  She truly deserves this award.”

  • Helene McLaughlin, RN, and Kate Quinn, RN, Oncology Care Coordination (joint nomination)
    • Helene and Kate were nominated together as the RN Care Coordinators that assist the providers in patient care and to quote the nominator, “make going through cancer treatments so much easier and calmer for patients.”  The nomination came from a colleague and also stated, “I have never met anyone more compassionate and knowledgeable than Kate and Helene when working with our patients.  To take such an overwhelming and emotional situation, and make it memorable in positive ways, is a rare gift.”

We are truly grateful for the amazing work that our nurses are doing every day.  Please join us in recognizing them.  If you or a loved one have been the recipient of extraordinary care by a nurse and would like to nominate that person, we encourage you to complete and submit DAISY Award nomination form.
