Infusion Center nurse Trenna Larson, RN, was named as the second-ever Daisy Award winner at a ceremony on January 3. Thirty-one nurses were nominated for the honor.
The mother of one of Trenna’s patients nominated her with these words: "My 24 year-old son had to have treatment for six weeks. Trenna was so caring and kind to my son. From fay one she found out what he wanted to eat every day before he arrived. She made sure he had red grapes and two cans of chocolate Ensure waiting. She made all her patients feel like they were the only one she had, when she had many.
"Sometimes the little things that someone does for you carry a lot of wieght. We really appreciate all you do . By showing how much you love wheat you do, with compassion. Thank you for taking care of my son."
