|Ranelle Merrick, RN|
Ranelle Merrick, RN, is Fauquier Health's DAISY Award recipient for this quarter. She was nominated, along with 15 of her peers, for exhibiting compassionate care. All nominees were singled out by patients or patients’ families -- some for a specific generous act and others for consistently thoughtful caregiving.
At the DAISY celebration on Monday, Linda Sharkey, vice president of patient care services and chief nurse exectutive, explained that Ranelle was recognized by one of her patients, who was in ICU with a terminal illness. The patient wrote that he had decided that he wanted to live his last few days in peace. He expressed a desire to feel the sun on his face and the wind in his hair before leaving this earth, and Ranelle took it upon herself to make sure those wishes were honored. She took the patient out during her shifts, and even on her days off.
The DAISY Award is given out quarterly to a Fauquier Health nurse who goes to extraordinary lengths to provide compassionate care.
