RAPID CITY, S.D. (Oct. 17, 2022) – Halli Dobler, a Registered Nurse at Monument Health Rapid City Hospital ICU, has received the prestigious DAISY Award. A national program, the award is presented to nurses who go above and beyond for their patients and community. She was nominated by a patient’s spouse.
The patient’s spouse wrote, “My husband had been a patient at Monument Health for multiple weeks. When he transferred to the ICU for a second time, we were all filled with concern and anxiety. When Halli became his nurse, our concerns were lightened because of her many wonderful qualities as a nurse and a person.”
Halli reassured and comforted the patient and his family, who felt more at ease when they needed to leave the hospital, and their loved one, in Halli’s care.
“We could tell she is passionate about her job and wants to make a difference,” continued the patient’s spouse. “When my husband was finally strong enough and able to speak, he even commented, ‘She is a good one.’”
The DAISY Award recognizes the outstanding professionalism and compassion that nurses bring to patients and families every day. It was established by the DAISY Foundation in California in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 of an autoimmune disease. DAISY is an acronym for “diseases attacking the immune system.” Nurses in Rapid City are selected 12 times a year for this recognition. Nurses are also honored in Custer, Lead-Deadwood, Spearfish and Sturgis. Visit monument.health/daisy to nominate.
