MICHIGAN CITY, Indiana - Three nurses at Franciscan Health Michigan City have been honored by The DAISY Foundation as extraordinary nurses. Palliative care nurse Pollyanna McNeil, registered nurse Patty Marsicek and behavioral health nurse Leeane Bolton (pictured left to right) received DAISY Awards, recognizing the work nurses do for patients and families every day.
McNeil's nomination recognized her generosity and kindness to help fulfill a hospice patient's final wish for a quart of his favorite buttermilk. Bolton's nomination by a patient with bipolar disorder praised her care, sense of humor and willingness to share her own life stories to help other patients. Marsicek's nomination was from the wife of a colonoscopy patient who said she went above and beyond in caring for her husband.
