Pet-friendly nurse nominated for DAISY

MICHIGAN CITY — Franciscan Health Michigan City ICU nurse Maggie Stevens, RN, has been nominated for a DAISY Award for her kind action to help a patient and their family. According to Franciscan, she had a patient who was vented, and their daughters requested the patient’s dog come in so he could say goodbye. When the dog arrived, the daughters were afraid to place him in the bed, so Stevens placed him in the bed with the patient, and placed the patient’s hand on the dog.
