Fall 2017 DAISY Award to Stumbo


Kelsey Stumbo, RN in acute nursing and ER, was named Greene County Medical Center’s eighth DAISY Award honoree at a ceremony on Wednesday, November 15.  There were six nurses recognized at the event.

Stumbo, who has been at the medical center for six years, was recognized by patient family member Sarah Borgeson, who wrote: “Kelsey has cared for my grandma on more than one occasion. She treated my grandmother as if she was her own.  She has the smile that gives comfort…Kelsey not only made sure grandma was comfortable in her last few days, but was an advocate for her to get what she needed for comfort.  She also cared for our family…When I think of Kelsey as a nurse, I think advocate, compassionate.  She “knows” her patients and their family and senses their unspoken needs.  She portrayed the “I have the time” attitude.”

Other nominees recognized at the November 15 event were Long Term Care nurses Maria Bretey, Bev Morgan and Vicki McCool; acute nurse Aaron Chalstrom; and clinics/ chemotherapy nurse Jess Brown.  All nominations expressed great appreciation for the work of compassionate and extraordinary nurses.
