Nursing at Michigan 2017
Leading the Way

Please take a few moments to read and reflect on the extraordinary work Nurses at Michigan do every day and the profound influence our work has on the thousands of patients and families we serve. We have much to be proud of!

Awards & Honors

Daisy Award Recipients: The DAISY Award is given through a nationally known program currently in place in over 2,124 healthcare facilities. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System and this award was established by a family whose son succumbed to a disease of the immune system. During his prolonged hospital stay, he and his family greatly benefited from care provided by superb RNs. This award was established to honor nurses who exemplify that compassionate, thorough care. Within the University of Michigan Health System, candidates for the Daisy Award are nominated by patients and/or their families. This is a wonderful honor.

Carol George presented WAEH conference in China

Carol George, Nurse Manager KEC OR/PACU, presented at the World Association of Eye Hospitals (WAEH) annual conference in Tianjin, China in June.

The Department of Ophthalmology is a member of WAEH and will host the international conference in 2018. The WAEH began 11 years ago as a global association of eye hospitals focusing on delivery of safe, quality care to the ophthalmic patients. The attendees were CEO's, COO's, CFO's, Nurses, Administrators, along with surgeon representation. An interesting feature of this years' conference was a much heavier focus on systems and processes and somewhat less attention to scientific medical research. Carol's presentation- "Kellogg Eye Center's Preoperative Clinic- Who is Preparing the Patient for Surgery?" discussed continual improvement and refinement of this care process by using the framework of P-D-C-A.

This year the conference added round table discussions and a Nursing session. Nurses from Great Britain, Sweden, Singapore, Shanghai and Tianjin presented the following topics: Patient Education Tools (apps, patient portals, DVD); Creating Ophthalmic Nurse Orientation programs; Hand Hygiene; Low Vision Support Groups and Chinese Alternative Treatments. In addition to attending the conference, Carol was able to tour the Eye and Ear Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai. When the WAEH group arrived, Carol was swept away by the Fudan OR nurses, changed into scrubs and brought to the operating rooms. As they walked her through the unit, they shared challenges and successes in providing care to the large patient population.

At the end of this conference, Carol remarked, "There is a bond in nursing that transcends all borders. What a powerful and enriching experience!"

Stephen Strobbe presented ICN conference

Dr. Stephen Strobbe, PhD, RN ,Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing, and colleagues from the International Nurses Society on Addictions (IntNSA), presented an integrated symposium on addictions nursing at the International Council of Nurses (ICN) Congress in Barcelona, Spain (May 27-June 1), addressing alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use as a global health risk, across all health care settings and nursing specialties.

Dr. Strobbe is also lead author on a joint position statement, "Substance Use Among Nurses and Nursing Students," issued by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), and the International Nurses Society on Addictions (IntNSA). This positon statement - which has been endorsed by the American Nurses Association (ANA), and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) - seeks to improve patient safety by applying an alternative-to-discipline (ATD) approach to nurses with substance use and related disorders, through prevention, retention, treatment, and recovery, rather than dismissal and prosecution. The document was dually published in the most recent issues of the Journal of Emergency Nursing, 43(3), 259-263, and the Journal of Addictions Nursing, 28(2), 104-106.

As President of IntNSA, Dr. Strobbe provided an update at the ANA Organizational Affiliates meeting in Washington DC (June 8), and attended the Membership Assembly (June 9-10), where the statement was recognized.

The Daisy AwardThe Daisy Award

Jonathan Friedman (4A) and Tammy Deyarmond (12E)

 


Jonathan Friedman

Congratulations to Jonathan Friedman (4A) for receiving the Daisy award! The DAISY Award is given through a nationally known program currently in place in over 2,124 healthcare facilities. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System and this award was established by a family whose son succumbed to a disease of the immune system. During his prolonged hospital stay, he and his family greatly benefited from care provided by superb RNs. This award was established to honor nurses who exemplify that compassionate, thorough care. Within the University of Michigan Health System, candidates for the Daisy Award are nominated by patients and/or their families. This is a wonderful honor. Jonathan has received 2 Daisy nominations in 2017. Here are the 2 nomination letters, written by the wives of two stroke patients:

"My husband was admitted with a stroke, and immediately Jonathan put us both at ease. He was always concerned with my husband's needs while in his care. Jonathan explained everything thoroughly, to where we felt comfortable going home and dealing with this diagnosis on our own. Anything my husband needed, he addressed promptly. He is very knowledgeable and I feel that he truly cares about his patients' well-being. He made sure that we left the hospital with all of the education that we needed to go home safely, and that we were aware of the follow up appointments. We came into the hospital feeling devastated, but with Jonathan's assistance, we left confident that we could handle this diagnosis!"

2nd letter:

"Jonathan is very deserving of this Daisy Award. My husband suffered a 2nd stroke that brought us back to UM. Having the 2nd stroke made my husband feel very emotional at times. On one particular morning, my husband had been feeling down and mentioned that it would have been better if he had passed away. My words of comfort were not enough, and I really didn't want my husband to feel like this, so I mentioned my concern to Jon. He assured me that he would talk to my husband during his assessment. The assessment took longer than usual that day, but when I returned to the room my husband's morale and attitude was changed! Thank you Jon for your comments to him and for your commitment to exemplar service!"

 

Tammy Deyarmond

Also receiving the Daisy Award this month is Tammy Deyarmond, RN (12E). Congratulations Tammy! Tammy is a multiple Daisy nominee, and was recently nominated by another grateful family.

Here is their story:

"Tammy on 12E is what I consider a "super nurse". In September our family was blessed with our 3rd child. Our daughter, ended up being diagnosed with a congenital heart defect, Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAVPR), resulting in her body not receiving enough oxygen. It was a whirlwind of surgical emergencies, doctor's appointments, and for us, a ton of learning, crying, being thankful and praying. She recovered very well and we were able to take her home, but two weeks later she was admitted to a local hospital for an infection in the intestines caused by another congenital defect. It was then that we were referred to the University of Michigan, Mott Children's Hospital for a liver biopsy. At this critical time, as you can imagine, our family was very devastated and it was also the time when we needed to learn about this diagnosis and procedure. Obviously the answers didn't seem to come to us fast enough, but Tammy listened to our long-winded concerns over small and arbitrary things, to the largest, most important things like surgery and outcomes. We needed help understanding and also with finding study resources. She was, from my perspective, able to perform at a level which most nurses never achieve. It was clear Tammy had connections and relationships within the hospital, and was able to get all of our concerns and questions addressed with compassion, despite our rambling conversations.

One specific example of how Tammy is such an effective nurse, not only from the patient care perspective, but from a family care perspective, is how she handled my emotional breakdown and craziness of not wanting to leave my daughter's side. She organized for my daughter and I to have a walk together through the hospital with a stroller, which was very therapeutic for me and also allowed me to start changing my prospective. It also allowed me to be a better proactive participant in my daughter's care plan. I think that it was so important that Tammy recognized where I was at, and knew exactly what I needed! During our time under Tammy's care, our daughter was able to benefit from a feeding plan before surgery, properly coordinated surgical logistics, and in all of this, assist us with a better understanding of what to expect and how to connect with the proper people. During this entire ordeal, we had many interactions with nurses, doctors, attendants, etc, and Tammy stood out among the crowd of employees. She is a great example of a nurse being the gateway; impacting the patient and family hospital experience, and ensuring the patient received the best care from all involved. Although we still have a long journey in front of us, including surgery, and a possible liver transplantation, Tammy has built a trust in me which will no doubt raise my opinion and trust in the nurses I will encounter in the future. This trust raises my outlook for our daughter and her outcomes, while she is in the hands of "super nurses" like Tammy!"
