Nurse recognized for extraordinary service

Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center (EMRMC) is pleased to recognize and honor one of its nurses for her extraordinary patient care. Emilee Kimbler, RN, a nurse in the Labor and Delivery Unit, was one of many nurses nominated for the DAISY Award. A resident of Casey County, Emilee has been caring for patients at EMRMC for just over three years.

She was nominated by a patient that said, “Emilee took care of my boys after their delivery. One twin had some issues and my hemoglobin was very low. Needless to say, I was very worried about them. My family said she took excellent care of twin B when he was born. Her assessment skills made her aware immediately that my baby had low glucose. My family said she

immediately took charge and fed him. Then all day she came to my room and checked my baby’s sugar. She educated us very well on signs and symptoms of low glucose. She would take them to the nursery for checks but then would bring them back if she could so we could feed them. She always kept us involved in the care of them. And when we thought baby A was going to get an IV and have to stay in the nursery, I became upset. She eased my fears. She took care of baby A and B for three days. I knew each day I had nothing to worry about when she came to get them. She let me know everything the doctors did and said about my babies. She also made sure I had everything I needed for my care. She was very sweet, caring and intelligent. She is what I want to be when I get out of nursing school in May. I would let her take care of my babies any day.”

Ephraim McDowell is proud to recognize nurses with the DAISY Award, a national program that honors the compassionate care and clinical excellence that nurses bring to their patients every day. Nomination forms for the DAISY Award are available at various locations throughout EMRMC and Ephraim McDowell Fort Logan Hospital and Ephraim McDowell James B. Haggin Hospital.
