Angie Daigle, RN at Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) has been honored with “The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.”

This award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. Mark Barnes and his family founded the award in 1999, and Terrebonne General Medical Center joins 708-other medical facilities honoring their nurses with this special award. The Daisy award is given to a nurse who exemplifies the kind of nurse that patients and families as well as nurses and physicians recognize as outstanding.

A TGMC employee came in for a procedure as a patient and had this to say about Daigle: I was nervous having a procedure work, I didn’t want to be a bad patient or have co-workers caring for me. I arrived at TGMC and Angie was my nurse. She came in promptly, introduced herself and the nurse extern to me in a very professional manner and treated me like a nervous patient and not as an employee. She explained everything to me and was very compassionate, respectful of my privacy and always available. She was very helpful in teaching the nurse extern proper procedure and offering advice from her years of experience. She always knocked and used proper hand washing throughout my care. By the time I went to surgery, I was not nervous at all. As an employee of TGMC you always hear our mission statement; exceptional healthcare with compassion. Now, Angie is the first person I think of when I hear our mission. She is the perfect example of providing exceptional healthcare with compassion. As an employee who rounds the hospital, I see Angie being pulled to many different units as needed. She always has a smile on her face giving excellent care.

“I am truly grateful to have received this award. I am honored to do the job I do and feel privileged to care for patients of all age groups over the past 20 years. I take my job to heart and try my best to make patients feel sage and taken care of during their stay. Receiving this award makes me realize that being a hard worker really does make a difference. It reassures me that a nurse is who I am, not what I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” said Daigle.
