Nancy Trimble, Daisy Award
Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton Clinical Liaison Nancy Trimble was presented with the Daisy Award and cited as an “example of what true service and hospice care means.” Nancy arrived to complete an assessment at an Assisted Living facility on a recent Friday afternoon only to discover a patient actively dying and alone. Nancy knew the patient would require crisis care and she stayed at the patient’s side until the arrival of the Admission nurse and assurance that care for the patient would be continued. Nancy “exhibited true reassurance, care, compassion and respect to this patient at the end of her life,” noted her Daisy nomination. Thank you Nancy for your commitment to superior care and superior service!
