SIDNEY — Wilson Health awarded the Daisy award for the third quarter of 2015 to registered nurse Mary Bohman.
The Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses is part of the Daisy Foundation’s program to recognize the efforts nurses perform every day. It shows the appreciation of all that nurses do to make a difference in patients’ lives. Nominations of nurses can be made by patients, staff and visitors.
“Mary is truly a nurse that I will never forget because of her caring demeanor and optimistic persona,” said the nominator. The nominator recently faced anxiety and feared the worst before a recent surgery. Bohman made the patient feel calm and think optimistically.
“Mary, not only demonstrated exceptional nursing skills, but she also worked with the surgical team to keep my husband informed on updates and what to expect after surgery. I want to thank Mary for including the mind, body and spirit of nursing as she delivers care to each of her patients, such as me,” the nominator stated.
Bohman began her career at Wilson Health 10 years ago in the Emergency Department. In November, she transitioned to the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). Bohman graduated from Clark Technical College in Springfield with her associate’s degree in nursing.
Wilson Health picks a nurse every quarter to honor with the Daisy award.
The award was established by the Daisy Foundation. Today, there are more than 1,400 healthcare facilities around the country honoring their nurses with the Daisy award.
