On Tuesday, November 21st, our nursing, medical staff, and executive team joined together in the 6 South Conference Room to say – Congratulations our most recent DAISY Award honoree, Laurie Stalter RN!
Laurie was nominated due to the amazing care she gave a patient who was waiting to go into labor after being induced at our Rowley Family Birthing Center and ended up needing to have an emergency c-section. She wrote us a letter thanking Laurie for the outstanding care that she provided to her during this fearful time:
We would like to express our heartfelt thank you for taking such over the top care of us while we stayed in maternity. We cannot express just how wonderful you were. After spending a weekend with you of being induced, it was a relief to go home. Also a gut wrenching fear that you wouldn’t be our nurse when our daughter was ready to arrive. I cannot even begin to tell you the overwhelming feeling of relief that Tuesday night as I was sitting in my hospital bed after going into labor and you popped your head in our room. I couldn’t have ever imagined a better nurse by my side through such an incredible time of my life. The fear of a C-section absolutely terrified me. When I had tears falling from my face.scared to death after hearing I needed an emergency C-section, you took my hand reassured me you had been there before and promised me I would be fine. Having you in the OR with me is a feeling I will never forget. Your mother like touch when I couldn’t have my own mother by my side was the best thing I could have wanted at that time. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had you as my nurse. You have one of the toughest jobs in the world, yet you don’t hesitate to do an excellent job! I can’t wait to share with my daughter one day, just how wonderful you were and what an impact you have made on our lives. You’re so kind, considerate, understanding wonderful bedside manner, and above all a valuable asset to Orange Regional Labor and Delivery. We could never thank you enough for helping us welcome our
sweet baby girl into this world. “
