Jeanette Ewing, RN, was November'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.
Ewing is a nurse at Mercy Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic, Mason City. A patient, who also is a Mercy nurse, nominated her for the award.
“I have been battling with infertility for over two years … Jeanette has been absolutely wonderful, positive and has helped me tremendously. I had basically given up hope that we may conceive. In talking with Jeanette (numerous times), she was very positive, and told me to not give up hope … She has given me hope again, significant hope, in something that I had convinced myself was not going to happen. I, myself am a nurse, she makes me want to become a better nurse to be more compassionate like she was.”
