No words can convey how wonderful and compassionate she treated me – nominator
Cookeville – Cookeville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) nurse Jordan White, R.N., is the latest recipient of the DAISY Award.
Nurses can be nominated by anyone – patients, family members, other nurses, physicians, other clinicians, and staff who experience or observe extraordinary compassionate care being provided by a nurse.
“No words can convey how wonderful and compassionate she treated me,” stated Jordan’s nomination. “Words to help describe Jordan are healing, awesome and angel. She meant the world to us and kept my family up-to-date daily. I’m a retired police officer, and I know when someone is putting me on. Jordan is the real deal, hands down.”
The patient wrote a poem to express his experience and the care he received.
Jordan – Like the River
I was admitted in the dark of the night,
With the devil seeking to take my life.
Angels of Glory, held me up by threads
Then came Jordan where I rested my head
Dark was the place where I had gone,
Death was upon me, the devil danced his song
The voice of God I did hear
I opened my eyes, Jordan did appear
With warmth from her heart,
Skill from her hands.
I live on to be a better man.
