Mercy Medical Center North Iowa

April 2014 DAISY Award Recipient

DaisyApril14.jpgAshley Thrond, RN, is April's recipient for Mercy Medical Center – North Iowa’s DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Each month a nurse from Mercy– North Iowa is honored with The DAISY Award, which recognizes the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. 

Ashley is a nurse in Mercy's Medical Unit (4E).  A former patient's family nominated her for the award.

"Ashley was so pleasant and caring.  She went about her duties in a quiet way but kept the patient and family informed.  She was kind to everyone and showed her sense of humor, but above all, she epitomized the nursing spirit.  I worked as a nurse for 22 years, and this young woman is the kind of nurse I would want to take care of me.  My brother agrees.  She is exceptional."
