ICU nurse Karen Maige was recently honored as our first quarter “Daisy Award Winner” after a patient’s family recognized and thanked her for exceptional care and compassion during the final stages of life for their loved one.

Family member Tommy Dollar stated, “She (Karen) single-handedly calmed all of our fears, worries, and told us what to anticipate in a very caring way that reassured us of the road we were about to travel. She told us the good and the bad and what we needed to do. A calmness came over all of us after her discussion with us. Angels like her need to be recognized for the devotion they have for being a caregiver and a nurse. I want to recommend her for the DAISY Award. She exceeded in every way to add comfort to this family during such a sad time in our life. She was definitely the bright shining star in our week.”
