MEGAN FONDREN, RN, NAMED TGMC DAISY AWARD RECIPIENT

07/17/2013

Megan Fondren, RN in the Telemetry Unit 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 patient’s wife nominated Fondren for the Daisy Award saying that while most nurses treated her husband very professionally, Fondren added more to his care. She showed compassion in every aspect of her job and not only treated the patient, but also the family. When the patient took a turn for the better, Fondren took it as a personal victory and rejoiced as a family member. She kept the family informed and took the time to explain everything she did to the patient. Her smiling personality was infectious.

 

"When you're a nurse, you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours,” said Fondren.
