Ashley 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."
