Deborah Dean-Flannelly, RN, receives DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

Congratulations to Deborah Dean-Flannelly, RN, from the Emergency Department at  Cascade Valley Hospital

The  DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses recognizes and honors the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day. This award is presented to nurses who have been nominated as an outstanding role model for their clinical skill and providing compassionate care.

Read the story included on Deborah's nomination form: Deborah Dean, RN and her team.

"My husband was in horrid pain. We ended up in the ER with Deborah as our nurse - a very knowledgeable and straight-forward veteran RN. She was patient with my husband and helped him think of other things to get his mind off his pain. She was determined to make him comfortable. She was very confident in everything she did for my husband. She went above and beyond for his comfort and care overall. She was the same nurse when we had to come back for the same issue. She remembered my husband. She was even more compassionate being that we left and had the same problem. She was very on top of explaining what was going on and what the next step would be. She is generously compassionate and caring. It was truly a blessing to have her as our nurse. I think her scrub shirt was hiding her angel wings."
