Aspirus Riverview Nurse Jennie Russell Wins DAISY Award

Congratulations to Jennie Russell, winner of Aspirus Riverview Hospital & Clinics’ quarterly DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Jennie is a registered nurse in Aspirus Riverview’s imaging department and was nominated by the granddaughter of a patient, who wrote:

“My grandmother was battling lung cancer. She had multiple images and eventually had drains placed for her lungs and abdomen. We had to change her dressings, which was very unknown to us. We had some issues with the drains and needed help. Jennie always was helpful in answering our questions and really looked out for my grandma. My grandma really thought Jennie was special. She was writing a letter to describe her experiences. She unfortunately passed away before she could finish the letter. In honor of our grandmother, we thought it would be great to let everyone know just how wonderful of a nurse Jennie is. Thank you for the love and kindness you showed her and our family.”

The DAISY Award recognizes the outstanding and extraordinary care nurses provide every day. Our DAISY Award winners and nominees exceed the needs and expectations of patients and families by displaying the Aspirus core values of: Compassion, Accountability, Collaboration, Foresight and Joy.
