Banner Churchill DAISY Award Recognitions

DAISY Award Recipient: Lianne Ricciardi CRNA

Lianne was awarded for this nomination: “…I came in for a C-Section. It was not how I imagined my birth plan going. I was extremely nervous and was having terrible anxiety. I am so thankful Lianne was there to help talk me through the procedure. She helped put my mind at ease by assuring me everything would be okay. I ended up getting sick through the whole procedure and she made sure to get me a cold rag and made me feel as calm as I could. She all around made my experience great. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a nurse.”
