Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center (EMRMC) is pleased to recognize and honor one of its nurses for her extraordinary patient care. Courtney Brackett, R.N., a nurse in Labor & Delivery at EMRMC, was one of many nurses nominated for the DAISY Award. A resident of Casey County, Courtney has been caring for patients at EMRMC for three years.
She was nominated by a patient that said, “I wanted to reach out about the experience my husband, newborn, and I received during our stay. I was fortunate to have Courtney as my dayshift nurse through my entire stay. My baby required staying in the nursery with Emilee throughout the night her first day of life, and she was wonderful as well! Courtney made an effort to wheel my entire bed to the nursery window so I could see my baby. She was very forthcoming with any information from the beginning to the end, and as a nurse that was one of the things I will never forget. I know in our profession, sometimes it is better to leave our patients with just enough information to keep the situation calm or for another pertinent reason. But I was comforted knowing exactly what to expect in each scenario, good or bad. I truly believe she could not be comparable given any other nurse. She deserves to be nominated for all of the awards, but I wanted to make sure I recognized her personally. I had never met Courtney prior to my delivery, but I know who I want around and will recommend to those who choose to deliver at EMRMC. Thank you for employing an awesome staff, we need more bedside nurses who have the compassion and knowledge to create a lasting memory for our patients.”
